I also am not doing this event. But since I tried to help someone I know a little with it, I'd say there are a lot of materials for this event. I think some things were mentioned last year. But I think I could find glaciers glossaries, definitions, etc online. I would say it's more of a problem with the large (should we say glacial) amount that could be asked.

It's the tip of the iceberg ;)

Har har har so glad I'm not doing this event this year...probably my least favorite event I did ever. But I can help a bit--mostly because I did way too much research over the summer...yeah.

I remember doing this event in 6th grade. Back then I had no clue what I was doing though. Suffice it to say, I didn't medal in it. I think it merits interest though.

Handwritten? Assuming they don't get repetitious, that's pretty incredible.

b(x) means it's a function of x; we really need the rest of the equation, bud. :|
