Record #199385:

The changing Canadian cryosphere, globalization and global environmental change / Olav Slaymaker, Hugh French.

Title: The changing Canadian cryosphere, globalization and global environmental change / Olav Slaymaker, Hugh French.
Author(s): Slaymaker, Olav.
French, Hugh.
Date: 2012.
Publisher: Oxford: Wiley-Blackwell
In: Changing cold environments : a Canadian perspective. (2012.),
Abstract: Identifies four drivers of environmental change in present century: relief, warming climate, rising sea level, and increasing human activity. Argues that human activity, in forms of land use, land-cover change, and economic activity will replace climate warming as primary driver in Arctic as century progresses. Identifies hydroclimate and human activity as drivers of respectively systemic and cumulative environmental change (one describes global-scale, physically interconnected phenomena, the other unconnected, local- to intermediate-scale processes with significant net global effect). Proposes landscape and "decades-to-centuries" as spatial and temporal scales appropriate for comparing impacts of driving forces on environment, before discussing changing social order, changing cryosphere, and ongoing landscape recovery from glaciation. Discusses adaptive management and impact of globalization in potentially depleted Canadian cryosphere.
