About this book

This classic monograph provided the first comprehensive account of the physics and chemistry of ice, and remains authoritative and relevant today. Informed by research from physicists, chemists, glaciologists, meteorologists, geophysicists and molecular biologists, the book places emphasis on the basic physical properties of ice (electrical, optical, mechanical and thermal), the modes of nucleation and growth of ice, and the interpretation of these phenomena in terms of molecular structure. Applied aspects of ice physics are also discussed.
