Summary
Periglacial and paraglacial environments, located outside ice sheet margins, but responding to similar climate forcings, are key to identifying climate change effects upon the Earth system. These environments are relicts of cold Earth processes and so are most sensitive to global warming. Papers in this volume explore some of the issues in field studies from Europe, North America and Asia
