Item description for Ice in the Ocean by Peter Wadhams...
Ice in the Ocean examines sea ice and icebergs and their role in the global climate system. It is a comprehensive textbook suitable for students, pure and applied researchers, and anyone interested in the polar regions, the oceans and climate. The book deals with the nature of the polar oceans; the distribution of sea ice; the mechanisms of growth, development and decay; the thermodynamics and dynamics of sea ice; sea ice deformation and ridge-building; the role of the marginal ice zones; the characteristics of icebergs; and the part played by sea ice in the climate system and in the transport of pollutants. An extensive reference list and recommendations for further reading, and numerous illustrations, add to the usefulness of the text.
