Impact of the International Glaciological Society on the development of glaciology and its future role

  • J. Weertman (a1)

Abstract

After the end of World War II glaciology entered a new golden age, which has yet to end. The quality of this golden age is comparable to the classic period of the nineteenth century. The International Glaciological Society has been the major catalyst, through its very active and co-operative international membership and its Journal of Glaciology in setting the modern major advances in the science of glacier and ice phenomena in motion and sustaining them.
