The cryosphere / Shawn J. Marshall.

Title: The cryosphere / Shawn J. Marshall.
Author(s): Marshall, Shawn J.
Date: 2012.
Publisher: Princeton: Princeton University Press
Abstract: Introduction to cryosphere and its role in climate system. Chapters cover: material properties of snow and ice; snow and ice thermodynamics; seasonal snow and freshwater ice; sea ice; glaciers and ice sheets; permafrost; cryosphere-climate processes; and cryosphere and climate change. Describes interaction of snow and ice with atmosphere and oceans, and how they influence climate, sea level, and ocean circulation. Examines cryosphere's role in ice ages and considers impact of changing cryosphere on landscape, oceans and climate.
