The United Nations Environment Programme’s report Global Outlook for Ice and Snow has just been released. The Author is Joan Eamer.
The Global Outlook for Ice and Snow, an official IPY project, captures the state of knowledge on ice and snow in polar and mountain regions of the world. It investigates the linkages between ice, snow and climate change and presents information on the trends in ice and snow and the outlook for this century and beyond. It also looks at the consequences of changing ice and snow to ecosystems and human well-being. The Global Outlook for Ice and Snow was written by more than 70 scientists from around the world.
