Description
No two are alikeónor are they as simple as we might believe. The author of The Snowflake and The Little Book of Snowflakes, physics professor Kenneth Libbrecht is a world-renowned expert in the science of snow, as well as a master photographer of these ephemeral crystals. His field guide to snowflakes explains the science behind them and also showcases their delicate beauty through his remarkable images of captured snowflakes, from simple prisms and plates to fernlike stellar dendrites, hollow columns, split stars, cups, triangular crystals, and 12-branched snowflakes. Libbrecht also tells when the most beautiful crystals are likely to fall, and how best observe and photograph them.

"This book really tells the reader almost all he could possibly want to know about the humble snowflake, and certainly made your reviewer ache for an 'old-fashioned winter' so that he could use this valuable book in the field."óInternational Journal of Meteorology
