    Geosciences, an international, peer-reviewed Open Access journal. Dear Colleagues, This Special Issue, “Cryosphere”, of Geosciences aims to present the diversity within the field and state-of-the-art research on glaciers, ice sheets, permafrost, sea ice, and snow cover. It also seeks to display a wide range of regional studies and methodological approaches such as laboratory experiments. The cryosphere (from the Greek κρύος kryos, "cold", "frost" or "ice" and σφαῖρα sphaira, "globe, ball") is an all-encompassing term for those portions of Earth's surface where water is in solid form, including sea ice, lake ice, river ice, snow cover, glaciers, ice caps, ice sheets, and frozen ground (which includes permafrost).Thus, there is a wide overlap with the hydrosphere.

    The cryosphere encompasses the Earth’s snow and ice masses. It is a critical part of our planet’s climate system, one that is especially at risk from climate change and global warming. The Cryosphere provides an essential introduction to the subject, written by . Executive Summary. The cryosphere, comprising snow, river and lake ice, sea ice, glaciers, ice shelves and ice sheets, and frozen ground, plays a major role in the Earth's climate system through its impact on the surface energy budget, the water cycle, primary productivity, surface gas exchange and sea level.

Mass Balance of the Cryosphere provides a detailed and comprehensive overview of our understanding of the mass balance of the glaciers, ice caps and ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland. It reviews the theory behind the observations, and describes modelling studies of present and predicted Mass Balance of the Cryosphere book trends in these key indicators of global climate : Hardcover.

: Mass Balance of the Cryosphere: Observations and Modelling of Contemporary and Future Changes (): Jonathan L. Bamber, Antony J. Payne, John Houghton: Books. The cryosphere comprises all the frozen water and soil on the surface of the Earth.

Mass Balance of the Cryosphere focuses on two key components of this environment: land ice (in the form of ice sheets, caps and glaciers) and sea ice. These components have been identified as important indicators of both short and long term climate change.
