Icebergs as a water source? / Patrick G. Quilty.

Title: Icebergs as a water source? / Patrick G. Quilty.
Author(s): Quilty, Patrick G.
Date: [2001]
Publisher: Parkville, Vic.: Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering
In: Looking South - Managing Technology, Opportunities and the Global Environment : proceedings of the 2001 invitation symposium. ([2001]),
Abstract: Reviews research on use of icebergs as source of fresh water for temperate regions, and describes small-scale experiments using RV Polarstern in mid-1980s and method involving wrapping of iceberg in fibre-reinforced inflatable plastic film. Discusses possible destinations for wrapped icebergs in conditions of climate change.
