Snow and climate: physical processes, surface energy exchange and modeling / Richard L. Armstrong, Eric Brun, eds.

Title: Snow and climate: physical processes, surface energy exchange and modeling / Richard L. Armstrong, Eric Brun, eds.
Author(s): Armstrong, Richard L.,
Brun, Eric,
Date: 2008.
Publisher: Cambridge: Cambridge University Press
Abstract: Aims to provide researchers and advanced students with up-to-date synthesis reflecting advances in satellite monitoring of snow cover and modelling of snow cover and processes in Global Climate Models (GMS). Introduces properties of snow; importance of snow in climate, natural and human systems; role of snow in climate change. Sections cover: physical processes within snow cover and their parameterization; snow-atmosphere energy and mass balance; snow-cover parameterization and modelling; snow-cover data (measurement, products and sources)
