Short description:

Polar Ice and Global Warming in Cryosphere Regions is based on recent and past climate variabilities gathered through satellite data and spatial-temporal analysis to explain the role of global warming on cryosphere regions; the high-latitude Himalaya, Arctic and Antarctic regions, and the surrounding Southern Ocean and Arctic Ocean.

Long description:

Polar Ice and Global Warming in Cryosphere Regions is based on recent and past climate variabilities data gathered through satellites and spatial-temporal analysis to explain the role of global warming on cryosphere regions such as high-latitude Himalaya, Arctic and Antarctic regions, and the surrounding Southern Ocean and Arctic Ocean. Through several case studies the book describes the atmospheric processes and their interactions with high-latitude regions toward a better understanding of climate variability. Understanding cryosphere regions helps readers develop plausible models for disaster risk management and policy on different polar events.


Features



  • Presents a thorough review on climate variability over the Southern Ocean and Antarctica, and the impact of climate variability and global warming on cryosphere regions

  • Explains how the inferred climatological environmental conditions using natural archives may shed light on climate scenarios in cryosphere regions

  • Includes case studies on globally connected geoscientific phenomena in the Himalayan, Arctic, and Antarctic regions

  • Discusses the use of natural archives to explain the current climate scenario in the cryosphere regions

Intended for researchers, academics, and graduate students following oceanography, meteorology, or environmental studies, and those working on projects related to climate change in governmental organizations, institutions, and global NGOs, this book outlines ways in which readers can initiate plans and policies to help mitigate the effects of global warming in these regions.
