Product description


Review of the hardback: 'It's a delight to read a book by a writer who is tops in the world on his subject. Bob Sharp has studied glaciers at first-hand - camped on them, struggled up and down them and flown over them for forty years. Nobody is better qualified to tell about them. This book is 'required reading' for anyone interested in this fascinating subject.' Bradford Washburn

Review of the hardback: 'A beautifully written and finely illustrated book about glaciers, glacial erosion and deposition … It is an extremely well written monograph of literary merit that should be required reading for all levels of natural science students and professionals alike.' Choice

'The book is written in a conversational, nontechnical style clearly intended for the interested non-geologist. Nevertheless, professionals who are not specialists in glacial geography or glaciology (and many who are) will find this a worthwhile book to read.' American Scientist

Book Description

Living Ice: Understanding Glaciers and Glaciation aims to increase our knowledge and understanding of glacial activity and products. The text is peppered with anecdotes and insights from one of the world's experts on glaciers and is suitable for anyone with a passing knowledge of earth science and an interest in the world of living ice.
