'Irreversible' Arctic Ice Loss Seems To Be Reversing Itself



'Irreversible' Arctic Ice Loss Seems To Be Reversing Itself
Daily Caller
The study, published in the journal The Cryosphere found that “annual mean ice thickness has decreased from 3.59 meters [11.8 feet] in 1975 to 1.25 m [4.1 feet] in 2012, a 65% reduction.” “The ice is thinning dramatically,” climatologist Ron Lindsay ...

Can The Earth Be Conscious?
NPR (blog)
Thus, instead of "Gaia," scientists began thinking of "Earth Systems" — the strongly coupled interplay of atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, geosphere and biosphere. So, even without asking if planets are literally alive, we still can ask meaningful...

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.

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.

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.
