    Glaciology, scientific discipline concerned with all aspects of ice on landmasses. It deals with the structure and properties of glacier ice, its formation and distribution, the dynamics of ice flow, and the interactions of ice accumulation with climate. Glaciological research is conducted with a variety of methods. The internal structure of glaciers, for example, is studied by means of radar. Intro to Glaciology Drs.

    Many readers will be familiar with the famous Sokal hoax paper, in which physicist Alan Sokal wrote a nonsensical article on the "hermeneutics of quantum gravity" and got it published in a sociology journal.

Glaciology (from Latin: glacies, "frost, ice", and Ancient Greek: λόγος, logos, "subject matter"; literally "study of ice") is the scientific study of glaciers, or more generally ice and natural phenomena that involve ice.

Dynamics of glaciers are the resulting ice flow processes caused by the interplay of the physical mechanism causing a glacier to move (gravity) and forces resisting this movement (e.g., friction). Alternatively it can be defined as a glacier’s response to climate change or to other external or internal forcings.

Internal deformation (or creep) is the movement of an ice mass through the. Glaciology is the study of ice in the environment. Important components are seasonal snow, sea ice, glaciers, ice sheets and frozen ground. Ice in all its forms plays a prominent role in climate and environmental change.

Our faculty and students investigate the flow, temperature, and internal stratigraphy of glaciers, slow-moving ice domes and. glaciology[‚glāshē′äləjē] (geology) A broad field encompassing all aspects of the study of ice: glaciers, the largest ice masses on earth; ice that forms on rivers, lakes, and the sea; ice in the ground, including both permafrost and seasonal ice such as that which disrupts roads; ice that crystallizes directly from the air on structures.

The title of this volume, although appropriate, is not really indicative of its content. It becomes more than a book on structural glaciology through its detailed treatment of many facets of glaciology, which the author defines as the science of natural ice in all its aspects.

People interested in ground ice, sea ice, lake ice, glaciers, and snow, among other topics, will find much of value in Author: Robert P. Sharp. This book offers a comprehensive and detailed summary of our knowledge and understanding of glaciers and sets them within a global environment context.

The text explains the significance both of recent advances in glaciology, and of teh many research problms that remain to be solved. The accessible style adopted in the text facilitates a clear understanding of glaciers and the role they play 5/5(1).
