Editorial Reviews

Review

"This very well presented book is a collection of papers describing some of the most valuable aspects of [sea ice] research. Sea Ice is a whole new frontier of opportunities for, among others the fisheries and aquaculture sectors. This excellent book provides considerable food for thought."
Fishing Boat World

"...this is a beautiful book, not only in its appearance, but in its organization, which provides current information on sea ice to those of us interested in global warming, biodiversity and extreme environments. Therefore Thomas and Dieckmann are to be commended for organizing and editing this timely book."
Biodiversity and Conservation 13, 2004

"The books editors... have collected the most significant contributions of a team of international experts offering to the readers a well edited and integrated volume surely till today and over, the most exhaustive about sea ice."
Polar News

"The book Sea Ice provides the scientific community with an excellent source of reference on the biology of sea ice from micro- to macroscale as well as on physical models, large-scale characteristics as derived from satellite observations, and paleo reconstructions."

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By isala on October 2, 2003
Format: Hardcover
An international panel of contributors give us an overview of the present situation in sea ice research. It covers the physical and chemical properties of sea ice and its role in the global climate. A large part of the book is given to the imoprtance of sea ice in marine biology. That is an area long overlooked by textbooks.
