✏Physics of Ice Book Summary : Ice is one of the most abundant and environmentally important materials on Earth, and its unique and intriguing physical properties present fascinating areas of study for a wide variety of researchers. This book is about the physics of ice, by which is meant the properties of the material itself and the ways in which these properties are interpreted in terms of water molecules and crystalline structure. Although ice has a simple crystal structure its hydrogen bonding results in unique properties, which continue to be the subject of active research. In this book the physical principles underlying the properties of ice are carefully developed at a level aimed at pure and applied researchers in the field. Important topics like current understandings of the electrical, mechanical, and surface properties, and the occurrence of many different crystalline phases are developed in a coherent way for the first time. An extensive reference list and numerous illustrations add to the usefulness and readability of the text.

✏Ice Physics Book Summary : This classic monograph provided the first comprehensive account of the physics and chemistry of ice, and remains authoritative and relevant today. The book places emphasis on the basic physical properties of ice (electrical, optical, mechanical, and thermal), the modes of nucleation and growth of ice, and the interpretation of these phenomena in terms of molecular structure. The book should serve both as a reference on ice physics for research workers and as aunified survery of the subject for those new to the field.

✏The Physics of Ice Book Summary : The Physics of Ice covers the state of knowledge regarding the structure, properties, occurrence, and movement of ice. This book is composed of eight chapters, and begins with an introduction and in the fundamental aspects of ice, including pure water freezing, circulation, occurrence, classification, and importance of ice. The subsequent chapters describe the properties, structure, freezing, and composition of sea ice and ice drift. These topics are followed by discussions on the crystallographic features, and mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties of ice. The concluding chapter examines the factor influencing ice growth and decay. This book is directed toward physicists and researchers in ice-related fields.

✏A Study on the Physics of Ice Accretion in a Turbofan Engine Environment Book Summary : Numerous turbofan engine loss of thrust control events have led to a theory that ice is accreting on initially warmer than freezing internal engine hardware and affecting normal operation. The phenomenon is termed ice crystal icing. Previous ice crystal icing research on a simple airfoil empirically identified the effects of pressure, temperature and relative humidity on the equilibrium surface temperature and the characteristic ice that accretes. In these cases with freezing fraction and impinging particle temperature as experimental unknowns, the on-set of ice accretion on an initially warmer than freezing surface was found to correlate with a below freezing thermodynamic wet-bulb temperature. In the present work, a novel ice accretion model, based on a modified Tribus-Messinger (MTM) surface energy balance, is developed. Implementing the model, the effect on the equilibrium surface temperature and freezing fraction near the leading edge stagnation region of an airfoil operating in icing conditions is investigated by varying the parameters of ambient static pressure, ambient static temperature, relative humidity and impinging particle temperature. The previously identified effects of pressure, temperature and relative humidity are identified as well as a new impinging particle temperature effect. A below freezing adiabatic saturation temperature, analogous to the thermodynamic wet-bulb temperature is calculated and shown to correlate with the predicted onset of ice accretion. Implementing the MTM model to investigate the physics of the modified surface energy balance, the pressure, temperature, relative humidity and impinging particle temperature effects are shown to be coupled within the latent, convective and sensible energy terms of the modified balance. The model predicts the observed onset of accretion and characteristic ice that forms on the surface from two experimental test cases. Control of the onset of ice accretion for these cases is demonstrated by varying the inputs to the model. It is also shown that by changing the impinging particle temperature for a given test condition the onset and characteristic ice that accretes can be influenced and predicted. Since particle temperature influences the surface temperature the wet-bulb temperature alone may not always predict the onset of ice accretion.

✏Fire Ice and Physics Book Summary : Exploring the science in George R. R. Martin's fantastical world, from the physics of an ice wall to the genetics of the Targaryens and Lannisters. Game of Thrones is a fantasy that features a lot of made-up science—fabricated climatology (when is winter coming?), astronomy, metallurgy, chemistry, and biology. Most fans of George R. R. Martin's fantastical world accept it all as part of the magic. A trained scientist, watching the fake science in Game of Thrones, might think, “But how would it work?” In Fire, Ice, and Physics, Rebecca Thompson turns a scientist's eye on Game of Thrones, exploring, among other things, the science of an ice wall, the genetics of the Targaryen and Lannister families, and the biology of beheading. Thompson, a PhD in physics and an enthusiastic Game of Thrones fan, uses the fantasy science of the show as a gateway to some interesting real science, introducing GOT fandom to a new dimension of appreciation. Thompson starts at the beginning, with winter, explaining seasons and the very elliptical orbit of the Earth that might cause winter to come (or not come). She tells us that ice can behave like ketchup, compares regular steel to Valyrian steel, explains that dragons are “bats, but with fire,” and considers Targaryen inbreeding. Finally she offers scientific explanations of the various types of fatal justice meted out, including beheading, hanging, poisoning (reporting that the effects of “the Strangler,” administered to Joffrey at the Purple Wedding, resemble the effects of strychnine), skull crushing, and burning at the stake. Even the most faithful Game of Thrones fans will learn new and interesting things about the show from Thompson's entertaining and engaging account. Fire, Ice, and Physics is an essential companion for all future bingeing.

✏The Physics of Glaciers Book Summary : The Physics of Glaciers, Fourth Edition, discusses the physical principles that underlie the behavior and characteristics of glaciers. The term glacier refers to all bodies of ice created by the accumulation of snowfall, e.g., mountain glaciers, ice caps, continental ice sheets, and ice shelves. Glaciology—the study of all forms of ice—is an interdisciplinary field encompassing physics, geology, atmospheric science, mathematics, and others. This book covers various aspects of glacier studies, including the transformation of snow to ice, grain-scale structures and ice deformation, mass exchange processes, glacial hydrology, glacier flow, and the impact of climate change. The present edition features two new chapters: “Ice Sheets and the Earth System and “Ice, Sea Level, and Contemporary Climate Change. The chapter on ice core studies has been updated from the previous version with new material. The materials on the flow of mountain glaciers, ice sheets, ice streams, and ice shelves have been combined into a single chapter entitled “The Flow of Ice Masses. Completely updated and revised, with 30% new material including climate change Accessible to students, and an essential guide for researchers Authored by preeminent glaciologists
