Abstract This fourth edition of The Physics of Glaciers expands on the previous editions in response to increased interest in the role of glaciers, climate change and global warming. Chapters include: Transformation of snow to ice; Grain-scale structures and deformation of ice; mass balance processes; Glacial hydrology; Basal slip; Flow of ice masses; Temperatures in ice masses; Large scale structures; Reaction of glaciers to environmental changes; Glacier surges; Ice sheets and the Earth system; Ice, sea level, and contemporary climate change; and Ice core studies.
