Although my book focuses on valley glaciers, it is not intended\ud to provide a basic course in glaciology, nor does it claim to\ud give a state-of-the-art picture of glacier research. It consists\ud mainly of the personal reflections of a meteorologist who\ud gradually became interested in glaciers and is written primarily\ud for persons with a general interest in the physics of the\ud environment. At the same time, however, the book contains a\ud wide range of source material that should prove useful in\ud university courses. Physical processes are described in a\ud quantitative way and where possible are illustrated with the\ud help of relatively simple models
