About this book

Covering more than 7 percent of the earth's surface, sea ice is crucial to the functioning of the biosphere - and is a key component in attempts to understand and combat climate change. With this book, the author delivers a natural history of sea ice, a fully comprehensive and up-to-date account of the knowledge of its creation, change, and function.

The volume begins with the earliest recorded observations of sea ice, from 350 BC, but the majority of its information is drawn from the period after 1950, when detailed study of sea ice became widespread. The author further delves into both micro-level characteristics and the macro-level nature of sea ice, such as salinity, growth and decay. He also explains the mechanics of ice pack drift and the recently observed changes in ice extent and thickness.
