This dictionary is the first full-sized dictionary of glaciological terminology - a pioneering work devoted to establishing a comprehensive international understanding of glaciological terms. It contains definitions of almost all the glaciological terms in common use today, providing a comprehensive working dictionary based on the most authoritative books, journals and glossaries in the field of glaciology. The object of this dictionary is to cover the maximum number of terms and concepts required by anyone concerned with present-day glaciology and related sciences. The dictionary contains 1106 English terms and their definitions, arranged in alphabetical order and followed by Russian equivalents and their definitions and French and German equivalents. The second part of the volume consists of Russian, French and German indexes referring to the main part by means of a numbering system. The terms cover all the types of snow and ice and natural phenomena related to them i.e. glaciers, snow cover, avalanches and glacial mudflows; sea, river and lake ice, ground ice, aufeis and glacio-nival phenomena of the past. The dictionary is directed primarily at specialists in glaciology, geography, hydrology, meteorology, climatology, geophysics, geology and also to students and teachers of these disciplines.
