Most popular at the top

  • The Flooded Earthby Peter D. Ward

    Basic Books 2010; US$ 16.99

    Rising sea levels will not extinguish humanity, but they will transform human life as we know it. An eminent scientist explains what our world will look like. more...

  • 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...

  • Glaciers and Glaciation, 2nd editionby Douglas Benn; David J A Evans

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 83.95

    Glaciers and Glaciation is the classic textbook for all students of glaciation. Stimulating and accessible, it has established a reputation as a comprehensive and essential resource. In this new edition, the text, references and illustrations have been thoroughly updated to give today's reader an up-to-the minute overview of the nature, origin and... more...

  • Fundamentals of Glacier Dynamics, Second Editionby C.J. van der Veen

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 129.95

    Measuring, monitoring, and modeling technologies and methods changed the field of glaciology significantly in the 14 years since the publication of the first edition of Fundamentals of Glacier Dynamics. Designed to help readers achieve the basic level of understanding required to describe and model the flow and dynamics of glaciers, this second... more...

  • Arctic Sea Ice Declineby Eric T. DeWeaver; Cecilia M. Bitz; L.-Bruno Tremblay

    Wiley 2013; US$ 132.00

    Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 180. This volume addresses the rapid decline of Arctic sea ice, placing recent sea ice decline in the context of past observations, climate model simulations and projections, and simple models of the climate sensitivity of sea ice. Highlights of the work... more...

  • The Ice Chroniclesby Paul Andrew Mayewski; Frank White; Lynn Margulis

    University of New Hampshire Press 2012; US$ 21.99

    An exciting account of revolutionary new discoveries for understanding the earth's climate, and their implications for future scientific research and global environmental policy. more...

  • Dynamics of Snow and Ice Massesby Samuel C. Colbeck

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

  • Detection of Melt Ponds on Arctic Sea Ice with Optical Satellite Databy Anja Rösel

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    The Arctic sea ice is characterized by profound changes caused by surface melting processes and the formation of melt ponds in summer. Melt ponds contribute to the ice-albedo feedback as they reduce the surface albedo of sea ice, and hence accelerate the decay of Arctic sea ice. To quantify the melting of the entire Arctic sea ice, satellite based... more...

  • Polynyasby Walker O. Jr. Smith; David Barber

    Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 200.00

    Polynyas are relatively ice-free regions when compared to the areas around them, and have been suggested as being foci for energy transfer between the atmosphere and ocean, ice ?factories”, and critical areas with respect to polar ecosystems and biogeochemical cycles. This volume presents an integrated, multidisciplinary review of polynyas in both... more...

  • The Physics of Glaciersby Kurt M. Cuffey; W. S. B. Paterson

    Elsevier Science 2010; US$ 103.95

    Now in its 4th Edition, this classic text covers the physical principles underlying the behavior of glaciers -- terrestrial ice bodies originating as accumulations of snow -- including mountain glaciers, small ice caps, ice sheets, and shelves. New material on climate change includes interactions between ice sheets and the ocean and atmosphere, paleoclimate... more...
