Do we need to study glaciologists in this event? If so, which ones?

Would anyone want to share tests for Dynamic Planet Divison B?

There is already a University of Florida test for divisions B/C on the text exchange and some other B/C full sets on the archive. By the way, do we need to study certain glaciologists for this event? If so, which ones?

Glaciologists are a very small section of what could be asked. Usually, if asked about any glaciologist at all, you will need to know Agassiz. Other than that, I only have information for Robert Boyle, Jean de Charpentier, Gerald Seligman, and Ignaz Venetz, but I have only seen them come up once or twice in all the tests I've taken.

Yes I know. Also you probably don't need to but it may come up.

How much do we need to know for each glacial period? Is it just general information or is there more information to know?

I'm just doing their order from youngest to oldest and whether it was interglacial or glacial.

Can somewhat explain what the difference between altimetry and radar is? In section 3.n. the rules mention that we must know methods of studying glaciers: Altimetry, radar . . . but as far as I can tell radar is a type of altimetry. Does altimetry refer specifically to laser altimetry, while radar refers to radar altimetry? Did I misunderstand something?
