Wiley-Blackwell Cryosphere Science Series
Permafrost, sea ice, snow and ice masses ranging from continental ice sheets to mountain glaciers are key components of the global environment, intersecting both physical and human systems. The study of the cryosphere is central to issues such as global climate change, regional water resources, and sea-level change, and is at the forefront of research across a wide spectrum of disciplines including glaciology, climatology, geology, environmental science, geography and planning.
The Wiley-Blackwell Cryosphere Science Series comprises volumes that are at the cutting edge of new research, or provide a focussed interdisciplinary reviews of key aspects of the science.Series Editor
