'...concise but complete reference book on the topic, suitable for all those whose reserach impinges on any aspect of ice physics. Clear explanations, aided by useful diagrams and tables of data, cover the main topics, with sufficient references to more esoteric areas...A new text book the Physics of Ice has been long overdue...The careful scholarship and cpmplementary expertise of the two authors have combined to produce a useful addition to every library and
many personal collections. This book provides much for the ice specialist. the newcomer to the field and thoseseeking any information about this amazing material' British Crystallographic Association
