Synopsis

The Story of Snow The Science of Winter's Wonder by Mark Cassino

How do snow crystals form? What shapes can they take? Why do star-shaped snow crystals usually have six arms? Are no two snow crystals alike? These questions and more are answered inside this exploration of the science of snow, featuring photos of real snow crystals in all their beautiful diversity. Perfect for reading on winter days, this book by a nature photographer and a snow scientist will inspire wonder and curiosity about the marvels of snow. And for those inspired to collect and study their own snow crystals, there are snow-crystal-catching instructions in the back.

About the Author

Mark Cassino is a fine art and natural history photographer. He first started photographing snow crystals after watching them land on the windshield of his car. He has since spent many cold hours in his garage, photographing snow. Aside from snow crystals, Mark also enjoys photographing dragonflies, wildflowers, and trees. He lives in Kalamazoo, Michigan, with his wife, Pam, and their two cats. Jon Nelson is a teacher and physicist who has studied ice crystals and clouds for more than fifteen years. His favorite activities include rock climbing, watching thunderstorms, and exploring crystal formations on frosty mornings. Though crystals shaped by weather are best, he can never forget the heart-shaped ice crystal he once grew in the laboratory. Jon lives near Kyoto, Japan, with his wife and two daughters.
