Abstract: Collection intended to be integrated, multidisciplinary, global exploration of scientific, social and economic dimensions of glacier retreat due to climate change. Discusses how science observes and models glaciers, how climate change is altering glacier size and distribution, and effect of glaciers on human life. Twenty individually authored chapters in sections covering: perceptions of glaciers and glacial processes; observations (measurement, monitoring and modelling); trends in natural landscapes (climate change); impacts on human landscapes (resources, hazards and cultural landscapes); responses (adaptation and accommodation)
