Call for Papers: "Studying the mountain cryosphere in the Anthropocene: challenges for innovation" at AGU (USA)​

Alfonso Fernández-2
Session ID#: 25679

Session Description:
The mountain cryosphere is constituted by transient hydrologic reservoirs (snowpack, permafrost, glaciers, etc.) that both document and respond to climate fluctuations. As changes in the mountain cryosphere accelerate and, for the first time in Earth history, are propelled by human activity, impacts emerge. These changes have transformed the field into one that covers a wide range of topics, including geochemistry, ecology, hazards, hydrology, and water resources. In particular, acknowledgment of glaciers as fundamental socio-ecological components of coupled human and natural systems brings new methodological challenges, where inter/transdisciplinary endeavors are necessary. There are also new opportunities for innovations to better observe and model the changes underway using drones, embedded sensors, and hydrogeochemistry, among others. In this session, we invite contributions that innovatively study changes in the mountain cryosphere, including their socio-ecological dimensions. We welcome contributions from both field-based as well as modeling studies introducing new perspectives in this evolving field.
