Principles of glacier mechanics / Roger LeB. Hooke.

Title: Principles of glacier mechanics / Roger LeB. Hooke.
Author(s): Hooke, Roger LeB.
Date: 2005.
Publisher: Cambridge: Cambridge University Press
Abstract: Graduate level text, with chapters covering: why study glaciers?; basic concepts; mass balance; flow and fracture of a crystalline material; velocity field in a glacier; temperature distribution in polar ice sheets; coupling between a glacier and its bed; water flow in and under glaciers - geomorphic implications; stress and deformation; stress and velocity distribution in an idealized glacier; numerical modelling; applications of stress and deformation principles to classical problems; finite strain and the origin of foliation; and response of glaciers to changes in mass balance. Emphasises connections between modern research and origin of glacial landscape features. Includes student excercises.
