Journal of Glaciology

THE Association for the Study of Snow and Ice, formed in 1936, has grown into the British Glaciological Society, which this year has started the publication of the Journal of Glaciology. There is room for such a publication not only to produce the papers read before the Society itself but also to consider many practical aspects of snow and ice. Without undue overlapping, it is clearly desirable to make contacts with various aspects of geomorphology, meteorology and geography. The Journal (price 7s. 6d.) is under an editorial committee consisting of Messrs. G. Seligman, W. L. S. Fleming, B. Roberts and R. Moss, and its present address is care of the Royal Geographical Society, London, S.W.7. The first number has varied contents following an introductory note by Prof. H. W. Ahlmann. Mr. G. Seligman explains Dr. R. Streiff-Becker's theory of extrusion flow in glaciers, and the Rev. W. L. S. Fleming discusses some of the Antarctic glaciological researches of Byrd's Third Antarctic Expedition. There are also a number of short articles and the first instalment of a list of recent glaciological publications, in the main non-polar works. The Journal promises to find a place among scientific periodicals of value.
