Does anyone have any links to online textbooks/helpful websites for those collegiate stuff. Like not just the terms but the science and math that's involved.

Thanks.

If you think those are bad, wait till you see actual glacier names... (Iceland), Fedschenko , Siachen oh my! Then again, some are easy like Lambert.

I just got a college level glaciology textbook and am currently working my way through it. Amazing how much math is in there! I probably should have gone through a college level physical geology book first, but the only one I had only had one short chapter on glaciers which I read through in about one day.

Looking forward to this event!
Oh, and I just found out what randkluft is. Thanks, fullmetalmaple, for reminding me!
How about Eyjafjallajökull?
Isn't that a volcano?
What's the book you're using? I tried finding collegiate resources for this event; I know the University of Calgary has a fairly extensive glaciology program, but the site is hard to navigate.

And haha, no problem.
I just got it online. I wouldn't really recommend it though... it's got differential equations in chapter 4(!)

"Eyjafjallajökull" refers to the ice cap, the volcano, and\or the entire ice-capped volcano complex (interestingly enough, in French, the volcano has a different name). I meant the ice cap, which has many outlet glaciers. Sorry for the confusion.

Eh, I know differentials. I might go on my own hunt for books, though.

I found a bunch of previews on Google Books. Never knew or expected so many mathematics in glaciers.

Are there going to be topo maps in glaciers?

Every time someone says they hate maps, I twitch a little bit.
