Applied glaciology: Symposium Topic


  • Anonymous


The International Glaciological Society will hold a Symposium on Problems of Applied Glaciology in Cambridge, England, from September 12 to 17, 1976.

The symposium will be concerned with the application of fundamental properties of snow and ice to the solution of engineering problems. Among the topics to be discussed are ice forces, bearing capacity, strength and deformation of ice, avalanches, ice in and on the ground, ice and snow hydrology, mechanical properties of ice, snow handling, ice accretion on and around structures, and properties of and techniques for producing unusual snow and ice materials used in industrial processes.
