Principles of Structural Glaciology [Book Review]


The title of this volume, although appropriate, is not really indicative of its content. It becomes more than a book on structural glaciology through its detailed treatment of many facets of glaciology, which the author defines as the science of natural ice in all its aspects. People interested in ground ice, sea ice, lake ice, glaciers, and snow, among other topics, will find much of value in this book. Shumskii professes to have a primary interest in the petrology of ice rocks and the laws of their formation, but he carefully develops a foundation of basic information before treating the specific topics of structural glaciology.
