Advances in Cryosphere Research Part I

Type: Paper
Theme:
Sponsor Groups: Cryosphere Specialty Group, Polar Geography Specialty Group
Organizers: Asa Rennermalm, Sasha Leidman
Chairs: Asa Rennermalm

Call for Submissions

We welcome any studies of recent developments in cryospheric research based on studies using remote sensing, modeling, statistical dataset analysis, and field methods. This may include impacts of climate change on high latitude hydrologic, atmospheric, and terrestrial systems as well as understanding of ice sheet, glacier, and snow-covered systems and impacts on human environment, including water resources and sea levels.
