About this book

The cryosphere, that region of the world where water is temporarily or permanently frozen, plays a crucial role on our planet. Recent developments in remote sensing techniques, and the acquisition of new data sets, have resulted in significant advances in our understanding of all components of the cryosphere and its processes.

Remote Sensing of the Cryosphere, based on contributions from 40 leading experts, offers a comprehensive and authoritative overview of the methods, techniques and recent advances in applications of remote sensing of the cryosphere. Examples of the topics covered include:

- snow extent, depth, grain-size and impurities
- surface and subsurface melting
- glaciers
- accumulation over the Greenland and Antarctica ice sheets
- ice thickness and velocities
- gravimetric measurements from space
- sea, lake and river ice
- frozen ground and permafrost
- fieldwork activities
- recent and future cryosphere-oriented missions and experiments

All figures are in color and provide an excellent visual accompaniment to the technical and scientific aspect of Remote Sensing of the Cryosphere. Remote Sensing of the Cryosphere is the significant first volume in the new Cryosphere Science Series. This new series comprises volumes that are at the cutting edge of new research, or provide focussed interdisciplinary reviews of key aspects of the science.
