Dear Ice Enthusiasts,
a quick reminder:
the first special issue “Cryosphere
Geosciences (2017/2018) included thirteen papers that shed light on a
diverse list of ice- and snow-related topics: alpine glaciers, glacial
lakes, GLOFs, permafrost, sea ice, snow cover, ice cores, and cryosols. The
papers present results and conclusions from the Alborz, Alpen, Altai, Tien
Shan, and Himalaya mountains; from the Arctic and Antarctica; and from the
tundra of Russia and the taiga of Finland.
The second volume “Cryosphere II”
a continuation of this reporting on our ever-changing cryosphere and has
the same mission: it 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, field
measurements and observations, numerical modeling, and remote sensing.
Contributions on the interactions between the cryosphere and other elements
of the geosystem (atmosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and lithosphere) are
of particular interest, as are applied aspects related to the cryosphere,
for example, natural hazards, hydropower, water resources, and artificial
glaciation. Last, but not least, the Special Issue allows for stretching
our imagination beyond Earth, and welcomes new insights into the
cryospheres of other planets.
The journal is now accepting manuscripts for review. Submission deadline is
March 31, 2019. Please check the website for additional information.
