Cold region hazards and risks / Colin A. Whiteman.

Title: Cold region hazards and risks / Colin A. Whiteman.
Author(s): Whiteman, Colin A.
Date: 2011.
Publisher: Chichester: Wiley
Abstract: Introduces classification of hazards, hazard awareness, physical properties of ice, and risk assessment (e.g., relationship between hazard probability, expected loss, loss mitigation and risk). Devotes each main chapter to major cryospheric source of risk (Arctic sea ice; ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica; icebergs; glaciers; glacier lake outburst floods; permafrost; snow avalanches; river ice - ice jams and ice roads; winter storms - ice storms and blizzards). Covers basic systems, associated risks, economic, human and ecological impacts, and mitigation. Draws on examples from around world, noting impact of current and predicted climate change on assessment and public perception of risk.
