Through Thick and Thin will provide students with a broad overview of glaciation within contrasting global contexts. It aims to develop locational knowledge of key glaciated places in the world: alpine glaciers in the Karakoram mountains, icebergs and ice sheets in Greenland and glaciated landscapes in the UK. Students will develop their understanding of physical geography, especially glacial features and processes and resulting landforms in areas once or currently covered by ice. Human interaction with icy and glacial environments is also studied, including how people have adapted to such places, the hazards they pose, and the importance of glaciated places for the future.
