Posters Session 3

Cryosphere in a Warming World


Session Description:

The cryosphere, comprised of snow, sea-ice, glaciers, ice sheets and frozen ground, is a key component of the global climate system. Cryospheric feedbacks involving snow and ice contribute to the enhanced high-latitude warming that has been observed and is projected to continue in the future. This session addresses the use of observations in understanding the processes involved in the cryosphere’s response to climate change. A focus will be on novel approaches to analyzing remotely-sensed information about the cryosphere, the quantification of uncertainty in such analyses, and the provision of data that will support better planning and decision making.
