Cold Canada and the changing cryosphere / Hugh French, Olav Slaymaker.

Title: Cold Canada and the changing cryosphere / Hugh French, Olav Slaymaker.
Author(s): French, Hugh.
Slaymaker, Olav.
Date: 2012.
Publisher: Oxford: Wiley-Blackwell
In: Changing cold environments : a Canadian perspective. (2012.),
Abstract: Summarizes spatial extent and global volume of cryospheric components and changes since mid-20th century, stressing ambiguity preventing unequivocal attribution to global warming. Discusses idea of "Cold Canada", and how terms such as "nordicity", "alpine" and "Arctic" help to define regions, based on temperature, wind systems, latitude, precipitation, seasonality, treeline, timberline, etc. Summarizes human occupancy and influence of wind chill. Describes Canada's physical geography in terms of cold lands, seas, lakes, rivers and mountains.
