The cell freezing of unicellular organisms; 37. Freezing in plants; 38. Freezing in animals; 39. Freezing of foods; Part VIII. Decay of Ice: 40. Reversibility and symmetry; 41. Melting of single ice crystals; 42. Melting of polycrystalline ice; 43. Decay of an ice cover; 44. Ablation of atmospheric and structural icing; 45. Thawing of soil; 46. Thawing of organisms; Notes; Selected bibliography; Index.


..."anyone who is interested in the way a solid interacts with its melt, in theory and in practice, should read the appropriate chapters of this book, and the section on periglacial processes is a well-written and up-to-date review. Moreover, the writing and presentation are mostly to a good standard, so anyone needing an introduction to a particular aspect of ice thermodynamics would do well to start with this book." Richard C. A. Hindmarsh, Geological Magazine
