Cryosphere: Order in Antarctic ice streams

Nature.com - Sep 16, 2015
Ice streams transport ice rapidly from the interior of the Antarctic ice sheet to the coast. An analysis of surface flow convergence suggests that ice flow and geometry are intricately linked within these ice streams. Interspersed throughout the ...

Cryosphere: Antarctic ice growth and retreat

Nature.com - Jul 13, 2015
Antarctic Ice Sheet change during the last glacial cycle is unclear. The timing of moraine development in the Ross basin suggests that the ice sheet reached maximum thickness under the warming temperatures of the last termination. The Antarctic Ice ...

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.

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.

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 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.
