Summary
"Explorers have ventured into ice-covered oceans for hundreds of years, but it is only in the last 50 years that scientists have been able to unlock the secrets of the ice. Armed with the latest ship and satellite technology, they have discovered how pack ice forms and grows, and in turn supports many living inhabitants from viruses to whales. Far from being a frozen wasteland, sea ice is now considered to be at the heart of the rich biodiversity of the polar regions."--BOOK JACKET
