This is the first textbook to consider all aspects of the
cryosphere system in the context of global environmental change
driven by human activity and climate.








Considers all six aspects of the cryosphere ? ice sheets,
glacier ice, permafrost, river and lake ice, sea ice and snow
? in the context of global environmental change driven by
human activity and climate.

Describes a new concept of cryosphere transience and landscape
transition which links climate, hydrology, ecology and
geomorphology.

Looks at the evidence, process, and patterns of cryosphere
change, on local and global scales.

Provides a wealth of data to inform the current global
environmental change debate.
