  • Remote Sensing of Glaciersby Petri Pellikka; W. Gareth Rees

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 164.95

    Glaciers and ice sheets have been melting significantly during recent decades, posing environmental threats at local, regional and global scales. Changes in glaciers are one of the clearest indicators of alterations in regional climate, since they are governed by changes in accumulation (from snowfall) and ablation (by melting of ice). Glacier changes... more...
