About the Authors
  • Amplified climate change and ecological sensitivity of polar and cold climate environments are key global environment issues. Understanding how projected climate change will alter surface environments in these regions is only possible when present day source-to-sink fluxes can be quantified. The book provides the first global synthesis and integrated analysis of environmental drivers and quantitative rates of solute and sedimentary fluxes in cold environments, and the likely impact of projected climate change. The focus on largely undisturbed cold environments allows ongoing climate change effects to be detected and, moreover, distinguished from anthropogenic impacts. A novel approach for co-ordinated and integrative process geomorphic research is introduced to enable better comparison between studies. This highly topical and multidisciplinary book, which includes case studies covering Arctic, Antarctic, and alpine environments, will be of interest to graduate students and researchers in the fields of geomorphology, sedimentology and global environmental change.

    • Presents a synthesis of the key findings from the work conducted by the global IAG/AIG SEDIBUD Programme, which was established with the aim of improving understanding of how processes and environments in cold climate regions will respond to changing climate
    • Provides the first quantitative overview of global source-to-sink fluxes in cold climate environments, allowing for direct comparisons with current research
    • Introduces a novel approach for co-ordinated and integrative research on denudational Earth surface processes and the effects of climate change in undisturbed cold climate environments
