Rocky Mountain Climate Watch: Who wants to visit the cryosphere?


The Colorado Independent - Aug 28, 2014
IT would be hard to do a climate change journey without visiting the cryosphere, that part of the Earth's surface which is frozen at any given time. The biggest slices, of course, are at the poles, but the rest is in the high mountains of the world ...

The Cryosphere


by: Shawn J. Marshall

The cryosphere encompasses the Earth's snow and ice masses. It is a critical part of our planet's climate system, one that is especially at risk from climate change and global warming. The Cryosphere provides an essential introduction to the subject, written by one of the world's leading experts in Earth-system science.

In this primer, glaciologist Shawn Marshall introduces readers to the cryosphere and the broader role it plays in our global climate system. After giving a concise overview, he fully explains each component of the cryosphere and how it works--seasonal snow, permafrost, river and lake ice, sea ice, glaciers, ice sheets, and ice shelves.

Remote Sensing of Snow and Ice


by: W. Gareth Rees
Many advances in spaceborne instrumentation, remote sensing, and data analysis have occurred in recent years, but until now there has been no book that reflects these advances while delivering a uniform treatment of the remote sensing of frozen regions. Remote Sensing of Snow and Ice identifies unifying themes and ideas in these fields and presents them in a single volume.

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the remote sensing of the Earth’s cryosphere. Explaining why cryospheric observations are important and why remote sensing observations are essential, it offers thorough surveys of the physical properties of ice and snow, and of current and emerging remote sensing techniques.

Earth Science the Easy Way


by: Alan D. Sills
This new addition to Barron's Easy Way series introduces the concept of Earth System Science and explains how the new emphasis on the Earth System approach is revolutionizing our understanding of global-scale Earth processes and changes. Separate chapters cover the Earth’s major systems (atmosphere, hydrosphere cryosphere, geosphere, and biosphere); the Big Bang and alternate theories of the universe’s origin; galaxies, stellar evolution, and other space phenomena; our solar system; the Earth–Moon system; geology and the geolologic time scale; plate tectonics and continental drift; weathering and erosion; the world’s oceans and atmosphere; and environmental considerations.

GNSS Remote Sensing: Theory, Methods and Applications


by: Shuanggen Jin, Estel Cardellach, Feiqin Xie
The versatile and available GNSS signals can detect the Earth’s surface environments as a new, highly precise, continuous, all-weather and near-real-time remote sensing tool. This book presents the theory and methods of GNSS remote sensing as well as its applications in the atmosphere, oceans, land and hydrology. Ground-based atmospheric sensing, space-borne atmospheric sensing, reflectometry, ocean remote sensing, hydrology sensing as well as cryosphere sensing with the GNSS will be discussed per chapter in the book.
