  • Remote Sensing of the Cryosphereby Marco Tedesco

    Wiley 2014; US$ 107.50

    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... more...

  • The Myrdalsjokull Ice Cap, Icelandby Anders Schomacker; Johannes Krüger; Kurt Kjaer

    Elsevier Science 2009; US$ 220.00

    Lowland glaciers are usually considered the best analogs for formerly glaciated areas and as such, many Icelandic glaciers have been intensively investigated with regard to process-orientated sediment-landform interrelationships. The Mýrdalsjökull ice cap has, thus, served as an excellent "ice-age laboratory."  Furthermore, a substantial effort has... more...

  • The Physics of Iceby E. R. Pounder; J. A. Jacobs; J. T. Wilson

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 31.95

    The Physics of Ice covers the state of knowledge regarding the structure, properties, occurrence, and movement of ice. This book is composed of eight chapters, and begins with an introduction and in the fundamental aspects of ice, including pure water freezing, circulation, occurrence, classification, and importance of ice. The subsequent chapters... more...

  • Dynamics of Ice Sheets and Glaciersby Ralf Greve

    Springer 2009; US$ 209.00

    Dynamics of Ice Sheets and Glaciers presents an introduction to the dynamics and thermodynamics of flowing ice masses on Earth. Based on an outline of general continuum mechanics, the different initial-boundary-value problems for the flow of ice sheets, ice shelves, ice caps and glaciers are systematically derived. Special emphasis is put on developing... more...

  • Climate Change in Eurasian Arctic Shelf Seasby Ivan E. Frolov

    Springer 2010; US$ 209.00

    Analyses the ice cover variability in the Arctic Seas during the 20th and early 21st centuries. This book shows that multi-year changes of the sea-ice extent in the Arctic Seas were formed by linear trends and long-term (climatic) cycles lasting about 10, 20 and 60 years. more...

  • Eurasian Arctic Land Cover and Land Use in a Changing Climateby Garik Gutman; Anni Reissell

    Springer 2010; US$ 129.00

    This volume is a compilation of studies on interactions of land-cover/land-use change with climate in a region where the climate warming is most pronounced compared to other areas of the globe. The climate warming in the far North, and in the Arctic region of Northern Eurasia in particular, affects both the landscape and human activities, and hence... more...

  • The Opening of a New Landscapeby W. Tad Pfeffer

    Wiley 2013; US$ 51.00

    Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Special Publications Series . This book, beautifully illustrated with dozens of extraordinary photographs, not only tells the history of the expeditions to explore the Columbia Glacier, but also shows how warming over the last century in combination with internal physics of the glacier act... more...

  • Glaciersby Peter Knight

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 87.95

    This book offers a comprehensive and detailed summary of our knowledge and understanding of glaciers and sets them within a global environment context. The text explains the significance both of recent advances in glaciology, and of teh many research problms that remain to be solved. The accessible style adopted in the text facilitates a clear understanding... more...

  • Drift, Deformation, and Fracture of Sea Iceby Jerome Weiss

    Springer 2013; US$ 49.95

    Sea ice is a major component of polar environments, especially in the Arctic where it covers the entire Arctic Ocean throughout most of the year. However, in the context of climate change, the Arctic sea ice cover has been declining significantly over the last decades, either in terms of its concentration or thickness. The sea ice cover evolution and... more...

  • Seismic Events in Glaciersby Marek Górski

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    The occurrence of seismic events in glaciers has been an issue in the scientific literature since the early 1950s, following the report about icequakes in Baffin Island. Targeted seismological studies were undertaken by the Polish Expedition to Spitsbergen in 1962 and then continued at various glaciers in the Arctic, Antarctic and the Alps. The author... more...
