Rocky Mountain Climate Watch: Who wants to visit the cryosphere?


The Colorado Independent - Aug 28, 2014
IT would be hard to do a climate change journey without visiting the cryosphere, that part of the Earth's surface which is frozen at any given time. The biggest slices, of course, are at the poles, but the rest is in the high mountains of the world ...

The Guardian - Sep 18, 2014
Yet a recent assessment published in March 2014 in the journal The Cryosphere used new satellite measurements to estimate that the world's major ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica are now shrinking at the rate of about 500 cubic kilometres a year.

Cryosphere books

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.

Remote Sensing of Snow and Ice


by: W. Gareth Rees
Many advances in spaceborne instrumentation, remote sensing, and data analysis have occurred in recent years, but until now there has been no book that reflects these advances while delivering a uniform treatment of the remote sensing of frozen regions. Remote Sensing of Snow and Ice identifies unifying themes and ideas in these fields and presents them in a single volume.

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the remote sensing of the Earth’s cryosphere. Explaining why cryospheric observations are important and why remote sensing observations are essential, it offers thorough surveys of the physical properties of ice and snow, and of current and emerging remote sensing techniques.

Remote Sensing of the Cryosphere


by: Marco Tedesco

The cryosphere, that region of the world where water is temporarily or permanently frozen, plays a crucial role on our planet. Recent developments in remote sensing techniques, and the acquisition of new data sets, have resulted in significant advances in our understanding of all components of the cryosphere and its processes.

This book, based on contributions from 40 leading experts, offers a comprehensive and authoritative overview of the methods, techniques and recent advances in applications of remote sensing of the cryosphere.
