Ice. Glaciers. Ice sheets. Sea ice

  • The Antarctic Subglacial Lake Vostokby Igor A. Zotikov

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 209.00

    A monograph examining the phenomenon of a huge sealed, freshwater lake, isolated from the rest of the world by kilometers' thick ice. It provides interpretation of, and calculations for, stimulating factors for possible melting and a huge lake's existence at the bottom of the Martian ice sheets. 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...

  • Climate Change and the Management of Natural Systems in Cameroonby Neba Ndenecho

    Langaa RPCIG 2011; US$ 39.95

    This book emphasises that planning is essential, as the conservation approaches of the past may not work in an ever-changing warmer environment. It appraises current management strategies, assesses the biological and physical effects of climate change on natural systems in Cameroon and designs a planning and management framework for each natural system... 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • The Drift of Sea Iceby Matti Leppäranta

    Springer 2007; US$ 159.00

    The author presents in The Drift of Sea Ice the fundamental laws of sea ice drift which come from the material properties of sea ice and the basic laws of mechanics. The resulting system of equations is analysed for the general properties of sea ice drift, the free drift model and analytical models for ice drift in the presence of internal friction,... 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...
