Antarctic Ice Book for general readership

Kenichi Matsuoka-2

Dear colleagues,


Norwegian Polar Institute published a book “Life of the Antarctic Ice”. This book conveys rich knowledge about Antarctica’s ice sheet and ice shelves aimed at a broad readership, including high-school students. Beautiful pictures, carefully prepared maps and short summary quotes help readers to grasp the story quickly. The text is written by international experts (please see author list below) using many analogues such as “ice is like ketchup”, so it is easy to follow. Advanced readers enjoy facts presented in did-you-know boxes and deepen their understanding with supplementary information of the illustrations at the end of the book.


The book can be ordered at the institute’s web shop:

The list price is 298 Norwegian Kroner (not-for-profit publication). For orders from outside of Norway, please use a promotion code AntarcticPal (100 kr discount).
