  • Dynamics of Snow and Ice Massesby Samuel C. Colbeck

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    Dynamics of Snow and Ice Masses gives an outline of snow and ice studies with an emphasis on essential properties and processes. The monograph also treats the dynamical aspects of snow and ice masses. The text covers topics such as the flow and temperature of ice sheets and shelves, the numerical modeling of ice-sheet changes; the structure of glaciers,... more...

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

    Springer Netherlands 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... more...

  • Seismic Events in Glaciersby Marek Górski

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 129.00

    This book presents seismic events in glaciers. It describes two groups of quakes: typical icequakes and ice vibrations, and  also discusses the problem of climate change. more...

As one of the world?s leading experts on climate change, Henry Pollack provides an accessible, comprehensive... more...

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

    Wiley 2013; US$ 136.00

    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...

  • 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...
