Abstract

In New Zealand there
are, as is well known, ice marks dating from the present day
to some period when the glaciers were at their greatest extent,
and for many years New Zealand geologists have been accustomed
to call this latter time the glacier epoch of New Zealand,
in order to distinguish it from a glacial epoch, which term
implies a considerable reduction of temperature." The
term glacier he considers does not imply any hypothesis as to
the cause. He affirms also that all New Zealand geologists
are of opinion that the glacier epoch there was long anterior
to the glacial epoch of Europe and North America
