#AntarcticLog: Ice is cool

Posted by Shane Hanlon

#AntarcticLog is a series of comics by Karen Romano Young. You can find the originals here.

Ice, my friends, is anything but basic.  It does strange and unexpected things, foiling even modelers. This week’s #AntarcticLog reviews an essential principle or two. 

Which gives me a chance to reflect on clouds and modeling. 

Johann Klages of the Alfred-Wegener-Institut helped me put together this poster about the life cycle of a glacier. 

And I can’t resist including one of my favorite things to have with meatballs: sastrugi!
