Abstract: Fourteen contributions examine changing physical nature of Canada's cold environments and implications for cold environments globally. Aims to: examine influence of coldness on biophysical processes; provide biophysical context for human geography of Canada; examine current environmental change and effect of future change. New chapters cover: sea ice, river and lake ice, remotely-sensed snow climatology, and interaction of northern indigenous peoples with rapidly changing environment. Emphasizes broader environmental science and sustainability issues and focuses on elements most vulnerable to climate change - tundra, sub-Arctic and boreal forest regions of north, and high mid-latitude mountains of west. Includes human impact on cold environments, environmental hazards, and role of cryosphere within global system. Chapters conclude with discussion questions and useful internet sources.
