Observation and Simulation of Ice Tongues and Vortex Pairs in the Marginal Ice Zone areas of new ice formation were found to be related to bathymetric features through their influence on the. We present the preliminary observations about the recession and resultant lake formation of the Kokthang glacier in Sikkim, India. We have analyzed time-series satellite imagery from Corona and Landsat satellites over a span of 55 years to delineate the uncharacteristic recession and its control on the proglacial lake formation. It is seen that the eastern tributary of the glacier has melted. Appearance of Fields of Ice. Situation of Icy Cape, the Sea blocked up with Ice. Sea-horses killed, and used as Provisions. These Animals [pg xiii] described. Dimensions of one of them. Cape Lisburne. Fruitless Attempt to get through the Ice at a Distance from the Coast. Observations on the Formation of this Ice. Arrival on the Coast of Asia. 1. Introduction. It is well known that aerosols can affect the formation and microphysical properties of clouds by acting as cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) and ice nucleating particles (INPs) (Twomey, ; Rosenfeld and Woodley, ; Jiang et al., ).The processes of ice crystal formation, or, ice nucleation can affect the lifetime, precipitation formation and radiative properties of.

  This book covers research completed between and May and includes: reviews of recent studies, sitings and investigations at spills-of-opportunity as well as results of recent arctic and sub-Arctic oil weathering experiments and observations on the behavior of crude oil in the presence of ice. 1. Introduction [2] The Earth's sea ice cover greatly influences the global climate by reflecting a large portion of the incoming solar radiation and providing a strongly insulating layer between the ocean and atmosphere. The annual cycle of sea ice growth and decay affects oceanic salinity which influences deep water formation and circulation of the world ocean [Gordon, ]. ‘Understanding what happens between 5,, mts on Mt Everest will estimate how glaciers respond to future warming’ The purpose behind the project was to perform a detailed scientific assessment of Mount Everest through establishing these weather stations, and crucially, through that, monitor climate variables at elevations critical for regional water resources.

Modern space research in India is traced to the s, when scientist S. K. Mitra conducted a series of experiments leading to the sounding of the ionosphere by applying ground-based radio methods in Kolkata. Later, Indian scientists like C.V. Raman and Meghnad Saha contributed to scientific principles applicable in space sciences. However, it was the period after that saw important. The term glacier refers to all bodies of ice created by the accumulation of snowfall, e.g., mountain glaciers, ice caps, continental ice sheets, and ice shelves. Glaciology—the study of all forms of ice—is an interdisciplinary field encompassing physics, geology, atmospheric science, mathematics, and others. Avoid ice in your drink in India. One of the reasons for avoiding tap water in India is exactly this that most of the time, you don’t know where your water and in this case the ice is coming from. Hence always drink out of sealed water bottles when you are in India. I would even suggest that you avoid ice as well. Ice Ribbons, Ice Flowers, Frost Flowers or whatever they might be called. In I found ice growing from plant stems. I have continued to pursue this topic and have found ice growing from many varieties of plant stems, from dead branches of wood, from small rocks and from the soil.
