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 onthe 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. The book should serve both as a reference onice physics for research workers and as a unified survey of the subject for those new to the field.
Peter V. Hobbs did his doctoral work at Imperial College London, before moving to the University of Washington in 1963, where he founded and directed the Cloud and Aerosol Research Group, and became a leading researcher in atmospheric physics, pioneering techniques of airborne cloud sampling. He received a number of awards for his wor...
