Sea Ice: An Introduction to Its Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Geology by G. S. Dieckmann
English | 23 May 2003 | ISBN: 0632058080 | 416 Pages | PDF | 3 MB

Sea ice, which covers up to 7% of the planet s surface, is a major component of the world s oceans, partly driving ocean circulation and global climate patterns. It provides a habitat for a rich diversity of marine organisms, and is an extremely valuable source of information in studies of global climate change and the evolution of present day life forms. Increasingly sea ice is being used as a proxy for extraterrestrial ice covered systems.
