- Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 209.00
The first book on the subject, this monograph examines the phenomenon of a huge sealed, freshwater lake, isolated from the rest of the world by kilometers' thick ice. The existence of melting ice at the bottom of the huge Vostok Lake has served as a model and inspired the team planning the Galileo space craft to gather data on the ice sheet of the... more...

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...
- Langaa RPCIG 2011; US$ 37.05
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...
- Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 209.00
This book analyzes the latest research on ice cover variability in the Arctic seas during the 20 th and early 21 st centuries. It includes a discussion of the Arctic climate system and the impact of climate change from internal and external factors. more...
- Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 129.00
This book demonstrates the potential of satellite-based optical sensors to detect melt ponds on Arctic sea ice. The authors describe the creation and analysis of the first Arctic-wide, multi-annual melt pond data set, covering the years 2000-2011. more...
- 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...
- Springer Berlin Heidelberg 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...
- Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 239.00
This book presents the fundamental laws of sea ice drift which come from the material properties of sea ice and the basic laws of mechanics. This edition includes new information on the climate problem, mathematical modeling and ice engineering applications. more...
- Springer Berlin Heidelberg 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...
- 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...
