Cryosphere, climate change feedbacks

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Climate feedbacks in polar regions act to accelerate or delay the effects of global change, not only at high latitudes, but worldwide. Because of the remoteness of the polar regions, and the difficulty of gathering appropriate measurements using conventional instrumentation, the study and monitoring of many of the components of the feedback loops are feasible only by using satellite remote sensing.
