AGU 2013 Meeting of the Americans: C02: Cryosphere in a warming climate: Changes, Impacts and Adaptation

Tingjun Zhang

Hi, All,

AGU 2013 Meeting of the Americans will be held in Cancun, Mexico from May 14 - 17, 2013. There will be a session entitled "C02: Cryosphere in a warming climate: Changes, Impacts and Adaptation". Abstract contribution is strongly encouraged. 

C02: Cryosphere in a warming climate: Changes, Impacts and Adaptation
Convenors: Tingjun Zhang, Yongjian Ding, and Ninglian Wang

 Cryosphere in a warming climate: Changes, Impacts and Adaptation

The cryosphere is that part of the Earth System consisting of all snow, ice and frozen ground on and beneath the surface of the Earth and ocean. It includes ice sheets, glaciers, ice caps, icebergs, sea ice, snow cover, permafrost and seasonally frozen ground, as well as lake- and river-ice. The cryosphere is a sensitive component of the climate system, and provides key indicators of climate change. Changes to components of the cryosphere may impact sea level, water resources, ecological status, the frequency of occurrence of glacier lake outburst and other natural hazards in cold regions, and thus have environmental and engineering significance. We welcome and encourage contributions from a broad range of cryospheric research subjects, such as climate change in cold and arid regions; observed changes in cryosphere; climatic and environmental record in the cryosphere; impacts of changes in cryosphere on sea level, water resources; ecosystem; cryospheric modeling; cryospheric hazards; adaptation of cryospherc changes and regional sustainable development; and  cold regions engineering


Regards,

Tingjun Zhang
