9780760348475: The Snowflake: Winter's Frozen Artistry
Reseña del editor:

Take a deeper look at the unique, hidden beauty of winter with the world's foremost snowflake expert and photographer.

In 2003, The Snowflake: Winter's Secret Beauty intrigued readers and reviewers with its breathtaking, close-up, highly detailed photographs of snow crystals. This new edition of the book retains the lighthearted, popular-science tone of the original and naturally still focuses on what snowflakes are, how they form in clouds, why they have six-fold symmetry, why they have facets and branches, the many different types of snowflakes, and why no two look alike.

A decade's worth of new photographs from northern Ontario, Vermont, Alaska, Michigan, northern Sweden, and Japan, including more beautiful crystals, improved photographic techniques, higher-resolution images, better examples of crystal types, and a much wider variety of illumination methods make this version even more lovely than its predecessor.

Author Kenneth N. Libbrecht's fascinating new material on snowflake photography, winter clouds and snowflakes, ice halos, skiing, snowballs, artificial snow, avalanches, and frost formations round out the book. No one who has ever caught snowflakes on their tongue or simply marveled at a winter wonderland will want to miss it!

Biografía del autor:

KENNETH LIBBRECHT is a professor of physics at Caltech, where he studies the molecular dynamics of crystal growth, especially how ice crystals grow from water vapor, which is essentially the physics of snowflakes. He has authored several books on this topic, including The Snowflake: Winter's Secret Beauty, The Art of the Snowflake, and Ken Libbrecht's Field Guide to Snowflakes. He lives in Pasadena with his wife, Rachel Wing. They have two children.

RACHEL WING is a park ranger for the city of Monrovia, California, at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains. With a background in geology, she now specializes in balancing wilderness preservation with wildfire safety for nearby residents. Rachel loves to hike and climb in these hills, especially on the rare occasions when snow graces our desert-like plants. She has been accompanying Ken Libbrecht as a snowflake chaser for nearly 20 years.
