Record #199685:

The cryosphere - past, present and future: a review of the frozen water resources of the world / Roger G. Barry.

Title: The cryosphere - past, present and future: a review of the frozen water resources of the world / Roger G. Barry.
Author(s): Barry, Roger G.
Date: 2011.
In: Polar Geography. (2011.), Vol. 34(4) (2011)
Abstract: Assesses frozen water resources of world, based on literature review. Summarises components of global cryosphere. Examines accessible frozen water resources: seasonal snow cover and its regional variations - freshwater ice and mountain glaciers. Discusses current trends in seasonal snow cover and mountain glacier ice volume. Earlier snowmelt has led to advances in timing of peak runoff. Due to warming trends, proportion of precipitation falling as snow is decreasing at lower elevations. Model predictions for 21st century indicate that greatest changes will occur in snow-dominated basins in mid- to high latitudes.
