SESSION V:
CRYOSPHERIC PROCESSES AND CHANGES

Convenors: U. Mikolajewicz, M. Kagayama

The Earth's cryosphere (ice-sheets, sea-ice, permafrost, snow) plays an
important role in the energy balance, and in the hydrological and
biogeochemical cycles of the climate system. The main challenges of
understanding the current evolution of the cryosphere, as well as
predicting its future, are matched by the long standing challenge in
understanding, on much longer time-scales, the past glacial
interglacial
cycles. As fast components of the cryosphere, sea-ice and snow have
been
included in climate models for a long time, while until recently, only
Earth system models of intermediate complexity, tackling climate
changes
on millennial or longer time-scales, included representations of the
ice-sheets. The large potential impact of changes in ice sheets (e.g.
sea level rise) and permafrost (e.g. carbon release) and the present
fast evolution of these components has prompted developments of their
representation in high-resolution Earth System models. This session
invites papers focusing on the re presentation of the cryosphere in
Earth system models, as well as on the study of their behaviour and
feedbacks in past, present and future climates.
