9780295979106: Glacier Ice: Revised Edition

The awesome beauty and majesty of glaciers, the world of ice which has shaped and reshaped large parts of the earth’s surfaces, are presented here through more than 100 photographs and a closely integrated, informed text. Austin Post’s series of aerial photographs of glaciers along the North Pacific Coast of North America and into the interior ranges of Alaska is supplemented with ground-based photographs from the Himalayas, Switzerland, Chile, and other parts of the world. The authors clearly explain the features illustrated. Their discussion of the effects of glaciers on the landscape, formation and mass balance, flow and fluctuations, moraines, ogives, and surface details is fascinating for the general reader as well as the expert.

First published in 1971 and long out of print, Glacier Ice is reissued in a completely redesigned edition.

About the Author:

Austin Post , formerly a hydrologist with the U.S. Geological Survey, is a noted aerial photographer. Edward R. LaChapelle is professor emeritus of geophysics and atmospheric sciences at the University of Washington.

Review:

"The photographs are unique, for no one else has taken so many extensive glacier-survey flights, and very few others possess the feeling for glaciers and alpine terrain expressed in these photographs. . . . Glacier Ice is recommended highly for the glaciologist, geologist, mountaineer, or just anyone fascinated with the beauty of nature."―American Scientist

"This revised edition is a truly wonderful book for anyone who has an interest in glaciers, whether for scientific, mountaineering or purely aesthetic reasons."―The Geographical Journal
