Record #12200:

British (Terra Nova) Antarctic Expedition 1910-1913: Glaciology / Charles Seymour Wright, Raymond Edward Priestley.

Title: British (Terra Nova) Antarctic Expedition 1910-1913: Glaciology / Charles Seymour Wright, Raymond Edward Priestley.
Author(s): Wright, Charles Seymour.
Priestley, Raymond Edward.
Date: 1922.
Publisher: London: Committee of the Captain Scott Antarctic Fund
Abstract: Comprehensive and extensively illustrated description of Antarctic ice forms, based mainly on observations during Scott's 1910-13 Terra Nova expedition. Chapters include snow and its derivatives; ice crystals formed from vapour; crystalline structure of ice; mechanism of glacier motion; classification of land-ice formations; ice formations characteristic of advanced stage of glacial cycle; structure of glaciers; ablation and thaw, with particular reference to Antarctic glaciers; Antarctic icefoot; Antarctic fast-ice; Antarctic pack-ice; Antarctic icebergs; geological climates of the Antarctic; and review of causes of glaciation. Appendix describes physical properties of ice.
