A new textbook on the physics of ice has long been overdue. The careful scholarship and complementary expertise of the two authors have combined to produce a useful addition to every library and many personal collections. The book provides much for the ice specialist, the newcomer to the field and those seeking any information about this amazing material.

British Crystallographic Asociation News At last there is a book of sufficient detail and scope, yet manageable size, that can be used as a text for graduate courses in ice physics. And students will want to keep it as a reference for their careers in the broad field of glaciology. This book is the first comprehensive treatment of the physics of ice to be written in the last 25 years.
It provides an up-to-date discussion of the properties of ice and an interpretation of these properties in terms of the structure of the water molecule and ice crystals.
