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.
  • Looks at the evidence, process, and patterns of cryosphere change, on local and global scales.
  • Provides a wealth of data to inform the current global environmental change debate.
