Summary Ice, snow and climate change are closely linked; this publication investigates those linkages. It also presents information on the trends in ice and snow, the outlook for this century and beyond and the consequences to ecosystems and human well-being of these changes. Written by more than 70 scientists from around the world, it covers all parts of the cryosphere (the world of ice): snow, land ice, sea ice, river and lake ice, and frozen ground.
