Victor F. Petrenko and Robert W. Whitworth

There is much scientific interest in ice, both because of its unique and intriguing properties and because of its importance in the natural environment.

It describes the physical properties of ice, interprets them in terms of its molecular structure and shows their relevance to the forms of ice found on Earth and in space.
