Paden Receives 2016 Cryosphere Early Career Award


Eos - Oct 11, 2016
John Paden will receive the 2016 Cryosphere Early Career Award at the 2016 American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting, to be held 12–16 December in San Francisco, Calif. The award is for "a significant contribution to cryospheric science and technology.".
 

Crisis in the Cryosphere


Scientific American (blog) - Apr 14, 2016
But the accord never mentions the cryosphere, the frigid regions that include the planet's polar ice caps; ice fields; mountain glaciers; and permafrost, or perennially frozen soil. Even if the emission-reduction targets are met, it won't be enough ...
 

What happens when the ice disappears?


The Week Magazine - Dec 22, 2016
But for big parts of the Earth's cryosphere, it is too late. Even if greenhouse gas emissions were completely stopped today, most of the world's glaciers would still disappear or dwindle to remnants by the end of this century, just from the CO2 that's ...

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.

The Cryosphere and Global Environmental Change


by: Olav Slaymaker, Richard Kelly
This is the first textbook to consider all aspects of the cryosphere system in the context of global environmental change driven by human activity and climate.

  • Considers all six aspects of the cryosphere – ice sheets, glacier ice, permafrost, river and lake ice, sea ice and snow – in the context of global environmental change driven by human activity and climate.
  • Describes a new concept of cryosphere transience and landscape transition which links climate, hydrology, ecology and geomorphology.

    The Global Cryosphere: Past, Present and Future


    by: Roger Barry, Thian Yew Gan
    This is the first textbook to address all the components of the Earth's cryosphere - all forms of snow and ice, both terrestrial and marine. It provides a concise but comprehensive summary of snow cover, glaciers, ice sheets, lake and river ice, permafrost, sea ice and icebergs - their past history and projected future state. It is designed for courses at upper undergraduate and graduate level in environmental science, geography, geology, glaciology, hydrology, water resource engineering and ocean sciences.

    Mass Balance of the Cryosphere: Observations and Modelling of Contemporary and Future Changes


    Providing a comprehensive overview of the significance of the glaciers, ice caps and ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland, this study reviews the theory behind climatological observations. It describes present modelling studies and predicted future changes in the mass balances of these key indicators of global climate change. The volume is an important reference for scientists working in climate change, environmental sciences and glaciology.
