Climate Ranger update: Into the cryosphere


Summit County Citizens Voice - Aug 6, 2014
FRISCO — It would be hard to do a climate change journey without visiting the cryosphere, that part of the Earth which is in a frozen state at any given time. The biggest slices, of course, are at the poles, but the rest is in the high mountains of ...
 

The loss of our glaciers is a threat to millions worldwide


The Independent - Aug 14, 2014
They are one of the most visible icons of the “cryosphere”, the cold parts of the world where temperatures fall below the freezing point of water, a natural tipping point that profoundly changes the environment. And yet, only as a result of the long ...
 

Antarctic melt could raise sea levels faster


Deutsche Welle - Aug 14, 2014
Pearson calls this the "cryosphere imperative." In the run-up to important international climate meetings coming up later this year, the organization is calling on politicians and decision-makers to take "aggressive action on climate change." Unpopular ...

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.

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.

Physics of Climate


by: Jose P. Peixoto, Abraham H. Oort
"A superb reference." Physics Today "Will become a classic text in climate research. " Physics World "Valuable to anyone who studies, models, or uses the climate of the earth." Walter Robinson, Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society "Informative and authoritative on a remarkably wide range of topics." Nature Are we entering a period of global warming? Is weather predictable? Physics of Climate offers you an in-depth description of atmospheric circulation and how environmental phenomena worldwide interact in a single, unified system.
