On Line opinion - Apr 22, 2014
A temperature increase of this magnitude is likely to result in dangerous climate change resulting in deterioration of the cryosphere, release into the atmosphere of natural deposits of greenhouse gases and more rapid melting of polar ice sheets ...
 

The ocean is not just huge, but also hugely important


The Conversation - Apr 22, 2014
This vast volume of water exerts a profound influence on the atmosphere, on land, and on the frozen cryosphere. It stabilises planetary temperature, determines our weather, and regulates the content of our atmosphere. The ocean is the heart and lungs ...

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.

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.
