A View from Argyll
James Fenton’s perspective
on current conservation issues
New digital version of ‘A Field Guide to Ice’
The melting of glaciers through global warming is a topical issue. But…
– Do you know the difference between an ice sheet, an ice cap and an icefield?
– The difference between an ice berg, bergy bit or growler?
– The difference between hoarfrost and rime?
– Would you recognise a protalus rampart in the landscape?
The new digital version of A Field Guide to Ice answers all these questions and many more.
“There is a great value to polar travelers in carrying this booklet with them, and it makes for a good
little gift to a student or friend traveling to the Arctic and Antarctic regions.”
