Crisis in the Cryosphere, Part 2


Scientific American (blog) - Apr 20, 2016
The thawing of carbon-rich permafrost is one huge problem, but the loss of the planet's great ice sheets is equally worrisome.
 

New Map Shows Only a Tiny Sliver of Antarctica Is Ice-Free—For Now


Motherboard - Aug 11, 2016
British climate scientists have published a new article in the journal Cryosphere announcing a new method of analyzing satellite imagery to distinguish between snow, rock, shadow, and clouds. Previous guesses put the amount of exposed rock in ...
 

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 ...

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.

The High-Mountain Cryosphere: Environmental Changes and Human Risks


This edited volume, showcasing cutting-edge research, addresses two primary questions - what are the main drivers of change in high-mountains and what are the risks implied by these changes? From a physical perspective, it examines the complex interplay between climate and the high-mountain cryosphere, with further chapters covering tectonics, volcano-ice interactions, hydrology, slope stability, erosion, ecosystems, and glacier- and snow-related hazards. Societal dimensions, both global and local, of high-mountain cryospheric change are also explored.

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.
