dc.descriptionFrom the Introduction: Water is an abundant and essential part of our environment, its distribution influencing every human activity. Perhaps 2% of the total amount of water on the earth is in the solid state as ice; this is approximately equal to the quantity of water in rivers and lakes and in the ground. Ice appears in a variety of natural forms, each with its own characteristic mode of formation and life cycle. In the present text, the aim is to describe snow and ice as they occur naturally, with particular emphasis on glaciers, since they represent the great bulk of the world's ice.
