Chapter 6 The Cryosphere
Figure 6.1 – Cryosphere components. Stress space and time scales
The amazing properties of water
Permafrost = Tground below 0°C for 2 + years
Ice flow profile longitudinal section plane view plastic flow and basal sliding min. distortion Flow lines on ice dome
Accumulation and ablation zones in a glacier
Seasonal distribution of sea ice in the NH and SH
Characteristic patterns of sea-ice drift in the Arctic Ocean
the sea-ice – ocean heat-flux feedback this box is provided for you to describe feedback in detail!
What? Remote, actively researched, monitored, measured, has a huge impact on global climate and is relatively cool?
Cryosphere (Frozen water). The shape of ice crystals cause ice to be less dense than liquid water This causes Ice to float with about 9% of the ice volume.
Seasonal Changes in Sea Ice Area. Earths Cryosphere consists of all forms of water in the solid state and includes: Sea Ice Lake Ice SnowGlaciers Ice.
Chapter 3 Section 3 OBJECTIVES:
Exploring Water Water has properties that can be observed and described. How would you describe the color of water? How would you describe the ‘shape’
There is only 2% of fresh water available on our Earth.
Surface & Deep Currents Chapter 14 Section 1. Bellringer How does the density of ocean water affect deep currents?

Glaciers. Groundwater Question of the week What is confined aquifer?
Consequences of Global climate Change. Impact of Global Warming Sea level rising Altered precipitation pattern Change in soil moisture content Increase.
MERRA fractional sea ice fields These fractional sea ice fields were computed from the hourly FRSEAICE field. The movies show the time evolution of 1-day.
Focus on High Latitudes State of the Antarctic & Southern Ocean Climate System Authors: P. A. Mayewski, M. P. Meredith, C. P. Summerhayes, J. Turner, A.
4. Models of the climate system. Earth’s Climate System Sun IceOceanLand Sub-surface Earth Atmosphere Climate model components.
BY GINNY BISTER Plate tectonics, tsunamis, volcanoes, and seasons.
SECTION 2 Explain the advance and retreat of glaciers and the main features resulting from the processes of erosion and deposition by glaciers. WHY DOES.
Formation Snow accumulation More winter snowfall than summer melt Glacier formation is similar to sedimentary rock formation.
