Most popular at the top

  • 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...

  • 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 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...

  • 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...

  • Polynyasby Walker O. Jr. Smith; David Barber

    Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 195.00

    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...

  • Sea Iceby David N. Thomas; G. S. Dieckmann

    Wiley 2008; US$ 288.95

    Sea ice, which covers up to 7% of the planet’s surface, is a major component of the world’s oceans, partly driving ocean circulation and global climate patterns. It provides a habitat for a rich diversity of marine organisms, and is an extremely valuable source of information in studies of global climate change and the evolution of present... more...

  • 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...

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

    Elsevier Science 2010; US$ 103.95

    The Physics of Glaciers, Fourth Edition, discusses the physical principles that underlie the behavior and characteristics of glaciers. The term glacier refers to all bodies of ice created by the accumulation of snowfall, e.g., mountain glaciers, ice caps, continental ice sheets, and ice shelves. Glaciology-the study of all forms of ice-is an interdisciplinary... more...
