Cryosphere Models: Ocean and Land in the ENCYCLOPEDIA OF SUSTAINABILITY SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY section on Climate Change Modeling and Methodology

Abstract

The global cryosphere encompasses snow and ice in all its forms in the natural environment, including glaciers and ice sheets, sea ice, lake and river ice, permafrost, seasonal snow, and ice crystals in the atmosphere. Cryospheric models are mathematical and numerical descriptions of these components of the Earth system, designed to simulate snow and ice… (More)
