Part III, The Cryosphere Past and Future, examines evidence for ancient and recent cold intervals in Earth history and climate-change impacts under contemporary and projected global warming.

and the marine cryosphere. "By providing this textbook, Roger Barry and Thian Yew Gan have given us exactly what we need, a basis for offering an undergraduate course in polar sciences. in such an attractively readable manner. As an excellent introductory text book for all forms of the cryosphere it is well suited for advanced undergraduates and junior graduate students. Atsumu Ohmura, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. By providing this textbook, Roger Barry and Thian Yew Gan have given us exactly what we need, a basis for offering an undergraduate course in polar sciences. I hope that many particular specialists in colleges and universities will start using this textbook in new courses in Cryospheric Sciences, as I am.

472 pp. Permafrost in high alpine catchments is expected to disappear in future warmer climates, but the hydrological impact of such changes is poorly understood. This paper investigates the flow paths and the hydrological response in a 5 km2 high alpine catchment in the Ötztal Alps, Austria, and their changes resulting from a loss of permafrost.

The Global Cryosphere. Past, Present and Future. The book builds on courses taught by the authors for many decades at the University of Colorado and the University of Alberta. Whilst there are many existing texts on individual components of the cryosphere, no other textbook covers the whole cryosphere.

This is the first textbook to address all the components of the Earth's cryosphere - all forms of snow and ice, both terrestrial and marine. It provides a concise but comprehensive summary of snow cover, glaciers, ice sheets, lake and river ice, permafrost, sea ice and icebergs - their past history and projected future state. It is designed for courses at upper undergraduate and graduate level in environmental science, geography, geology, glaciology, hydrology, water resource engineering and ocean sciences. It also provides a superb up-to-date summary for researchers of the cryosphere. The book includes an extensive bibliography, numerous figures and color plates, thematic boxes on selected topics and a glossary. The book builds on courses taught by the authors for many decades at the University of Colorado and the University of Alberta. Whilst there are many existing texts on individual components of the cryosphere, no other textbook covers the whole cryosphere.
