Summary
Abstract: The Cryospheric regions, or regions where water is found in solid
form, are among the most sensitive to temperature change. Average
temperatures in snow and ice-covered areas typically remain below zero
Celsius much of the year. Unlike other substances found on Earth, ice
and snow exist relatively close to their melting point and frequently
change phase from solid to ... View entire text
