Industry Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is an extremely useful and informative book. It will find a wide audience among agricultural and civil engineers, geophysicists, environmentalists, and scientists in general. Although the text on the back cover does not promise an encyclopaedia of snow and glaciers, the book nearly is one. It will certainly serve as a reference text." (Helmut Kirchner, Pure and Applied Geophysics, 2005)
