Snowflakes may be an everyday, common subject, but youve never seen them like this! A collection of amazing photography of snow crystals using a unique system designed to take super-detailed micro images of these miniature ice masterpieces, "The Snowflake" is an extraordinary look at a seemingly ordinary object. Author Kenneth Libbrecht, a physics professor at Caltech and the pre-eminent snow-crystal researcher, discusses the physics and mythology of snow and how snow crystals are made. Photographer Patricia Rasmussen presents remarkable color micro-photography of snowflakes, and also discusses the history of snow-crystal micro-photography as invented by farmer Wilson Bentley.

The perfect geometry and exquisite beauty of nature is nowhere so clear to us as in the snowflake. But how have we been able to appreciate this infinitesimal wonder in all its crystalline glory? This book, as much a work of art as a testament to science, reveals how one of the snowflake’s most inspired photographers came to such intimate knowledge of his craft and its fleeting focus. Beautiful pictures illustrate Kenneth Libbrecht’s story of the microphotography of snow crystals, from the pioneering work of Wilson Bentley in the 1890s right up to Ken’s own innovations in our age of digital images. A breathtaking look at the works of art that melt in an instant, this is a book to page through and savor, season after season.

As much a work of art as a testament to science, this revised, hardcover edition of the best-selling The Art of the Snowflake (now Capturing Snowflakes) includes a laser-cut silver snowflake ornament in its cover and showcases 430+ images of snowflakes captured by the photo-microscope of the world's leading expert on the subject, Kenneth Libbrecht, a professor of physics at Caltech who also served as a science consultant for Disney's Frozen movies. The snow may seem unvaried to the naked eye, but the microscope reveals an amazing menagerie of beautiful crystalline forms. Building on the pioneering work of Wilson Bentley (1865-1931), Libbrecht has developed techniques for capturing images of snow crystals in unprecedented detail. While wondering at the hundreds of exquisite snowflake portraits, find: The science behind snowflakes, including how they form on a molecular level and the complex process that guarantees each one's uniqueness Field notes from Libbrecht's photographic expeditions to the frozen north The taxonomy of snowflakes and examples of each type: simple plates and prisms, columns and needles, capped columns, sectored plates, stellar plates, stellar dendrites, triangular crystals, double plates, split plates, split stars, and even rare twelve-branched snowflakes Quotations about the wonder of snowflakes and nature from Aristotle, Henry David Thoreau, John Muir, and more This book is a breathtaking look at the works of art that melt in an instant.

"Over my career I have led more than 30 snow expeditions, taught snow science in the classroom at the undergraduate and graduate level, and run more than a dozen field method classes all over the U.S. In the field with my students, we have worked shoulder-to-shoulder in snow pits measuring the density, grain size, and stratigraphy of the snow pack. In that setting I have tried to teach people how to read in the snow the story of the winter. Most beginners at first have trouble seeing the story: it is all just white and the same. But with time, and a little guidance, the winter world has opened up for them. That is what this book is about: just a little guidance for those who might not get a chance to dig a snow pit with me, but who want to know more about the snow"--

With a calamitous history of tornadoes, blizzards, and thunderstorms, Minnesotans have a natural interest in weather predictions. From Doppler to dandelions, the WCCO-licensed Mike Lynchs Minnesota WeatherWatch reveals the secrets of weather forecasting in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. A broadcast meteorologist for over 25 years, Mike Lynch infuses the book with his trademark enthusiasm and sense of fun. First he delves into the mechanics of the atmosphere and scientific forecasting methods from the ancient Greeks and Romans to modern Doppler radar and satellite technology. He then turns to good old Mother Nature and shows how, with her guidance--in the form of dandelions and other plants, sky color, stars, critter activity, lakes, and more--we can predict the weather. Rounding out this expert guidance are sidebars on Minnesota weather history and lore, plus a state weather almanac. Beautifully illustrated with over 100 color photographs, this book equips us with the diverse tools needed to forecast the weather in the North Star State.

A note about the price: This book is of a rare nature, not for the general public, and the author has priced it accordingly. Less affluent readers are invited to pursue used copies or contact the author directly. A pragmatic reference replete with tips and easy-to-digest tidbits from folklore, physics, and literature, this Field Guide is at once a commonplace book, a work of refined playfulness and wit, and ultimately a self-help tool for centering and opening awareness through active listening. Blending the author's signature sensitivity to the awe and magic wrapped up in folkloric phenomena with a tongue-in-cheek bending of scientific principles to his fanciful purpose, this concise book uniquely balances humor, scholarship, spirituality, and imagination. As readers open their ears and awaken their inner senses, they are guided to effortlessly attune to whispers of the soul. Readers may set off in search of hearing a unicorn, but through deep listening they are likely to encounter their higher selves. Dozens of easy-to-grasp, deceptively sensible illustrations expertly marry science and whimsy. Delightful, enchanting, and unique, it is perhaps the ultimate in whimsical zoology.
