This book is the second of three volumes in which the recent knowledge of the extent and chronology of Quaternary glaciations has been compiled on a global scale.

This information is seen as a fundamental requirement, not only for the glacial community, but for the wider user-community of general Quaternary workers. In particular the need for accurate ice-front positions is a basic requirement.

Lying off the northeastern coast of Baffin Island, Bylot Island is almost completely covered in an ice cap, which is pierced by mountain peaks and ridges. Hall Peninsula and the promontory west of Frobisher Bay are lowlands of Precambrian gneiss rock. The terrain is rough and rocky, with hills near the coast.

This information is seen as a fundamental requirement, not only for the glacial community, but for the wider user-community of general Quaternary workers.
