about

Snow and Ice-Related Hazards, Risks, and Disastersprovides you with the latest scientific developments in glacier surges and melting, ice shelf collapses, paleo-climate reconstruction, sea level rise, climate change implications, causality, impacts, preparedness, and mitigation. It takes a geo-scientific approach to the topic while also covering current thinking about directly related social scientific issues that can adversely affect ecosystems and global economies.

  • Puts the contributions from expert oceanographers, geologists, geophysicists, environmental scientists, and climatologists selected by a world-renowned editorial board in your hands
  • Presents the latest research on causality, glacial surges, ice-shelf collapses, sea level rise, climate change implications, and more
  • Numerous tables, maps, diagrams, illustrations and photographs of hazardous processes will be included
  • Features new insights into the implications of climate change on increased melting, collapsing, flooding, methane emissions, and sea level rise
