The cryosphere and global environmental change / Olav Slaymaker, Richard E.J. Kelly.

Title: The cryosphere and global environmental change / Olav Slaymaker, Richard E.J. Kelly.
Author(s): Slaymaker, Olav.
Kelly, Richard E. J.
Date: 2007.
Publisher: Malden, MA: Blackwell
Abstract: Graduate level text examining all aspects of cryosphere system (ice sheets, sea ice, snow, river and lake ice, glaciers and permafrost) in context of global environmental change driven by human activity and climate. Introduces new concept of cryosphere transience and landscape transitions, linking topics of climate, hydrology, ecology and geomorphology. Includes synthesis of anthropogenic and climatic factors in environmental change and detailed description of how modern and historical remote sensing measurements have been used to understand state of cryosphere.
