  There are places on Earth that are so cold that water is frozen solid. These areas of snow or ice, which are subject to temperatures below 32°F for at least part of the year, compose the cryosphere. The term “cryosphere” comes from the Greek word, “krios,” which means cold. Ice and snow on land are Continue reading Cryosphere. Earth's surface hosts many forms of snow and ice, including sea ice, lake and river ice, snow cover, glaciers, ice caps and sheets, and frozen ground. Together, these features are known as the cryosphere cryosphere: the set of all locations on or beneath Earth's surface where frozen water exists.

  On our NASA site at: Earth's cryosphere, one of Earth's six spheres, is composed of all its frozen structures including sea ice, ice caps, and permafrost.   “The Tour of the Cryosphere ” combines satellite imagery and state-of-the-art computer animation software to create a fact-filled and visually stunning tour that shows viewers the icy reaches of Antarctica, the glacier-pocked regions along the Andes Mountains, the winter snows of the American West, the drifting expanse of polar sea ice.

Kristen St John, R Mark Leckie, Kate Pound, Megan Jones and Lawrence Krissek. 5 Based on what you have learned from other exercises in this book that you 3 Watch “A Tour of the Cryosphere: Earth’s Frozen Assets” produced by NASA at.   The cryosphere consists of those parts of the Earth's surface where water is found in solid form, including areas of snow, sea ice, glaciers, permafrost, ice sheets, and icebergs. In these regions, surface temperatures remain below freezing for a portion of each year. Since ice and snow exist relatively close to their melting point, they frequently change from solid to liquid and back again.

The tour travels around the world in a single “shot”; there are no abrupt cuts or scene changes. The effect of this technique helps convey the interconnectedness of the cryosphere to the rest of the world, and also helps viewers feel that they are not so distant from the world’s snow and ice assets.

Get this from a library. A tour of the cryosphere: the earth's frozen assets. [Horace Mitchell; Jarrett Cohen; Michael Starobin; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.; Goddard Space Flight Center.] -- The cryosphere has a global reach, extending beyond the polar regions.

It consists of those parts of the Earth's surface where water is found in solid form, including. A tour of the cryosphere the earth's frozen assets. MLA Citation. United States. National book and Space Administration. and Mitchell, Horace. and Cohen, Jarrett. and Starobin, Michael. and Goddard Space Flight Center.

Scientific Visualization Studio. A Tour of the Cryosphere: Earth's Frozen Assets (more info) This visual tour from NASA encapsulates a vast amount of satellite data that has been collected over the last several decades of observing the polar regions and glaciers in the mid-latitudes.

This perspective allows viewers to clearly how the cryosphere has reacted to warming temperatures. The cryosphere consists of those parts of the Earth's surface where water is found in solid form, including areas of snow, sea ice, glaciers, permafrost, ice sheets, and icebergs.

This animation shows a wealth of data collected from satellite observations of the cryosphere and the book that recent cryospheric changes are making on our planet.

Book Description The first textbook to provide a concise but comprehensive summary of cryospheric processes for courses at upper undergraduate and graduate level in environmental science, geography, geology, glaciology, hydrology, water resource engineering and ocean sciences.

It is also a superb up-to-date summary for by:   There are places on Earth that are so cold that water is frozen solid. These areas of snow or ice, which are subject to temperatures below 32°F for at least part of the year, compose the cryosphere.

The term “cryosphere” comes from the Greek word, “krios,” which means cold. Ice and snow on land are one part of the cryosphere. NSIDC and A Tour of the Cryosphere, Earth’s Frozen Assets NSIDC contributed to the NASA educational DVD, A Tour of the Cryosphere, Earth’s Frozen Assets, released in December This eight-minute feature animation takes the viewer on a tour of the cryosphere as it exists around the world.

This 7-minute animation leads viewers across the icy reaches of Antarctica, the shrinking ice cap around the North Pole, and other frozen, terrestrial regions of the globe.

The Cryosphere and Climate Change. The Cryosphere and Climate Change: The main components of the cryosphere are snow, river and lake ice, sea ice, glaciers and ice caps, ice shelves, ice sheets, and frozen ground (Figure below). In terms of the ice mass and its heat capacity, the cryosphere is the second largest component of the climate system (after the ocean).

In a tour of this frozen continent, the animation shows some unique features of the Antarctic landscape found nowhere else on earth. Ice shelves, ice streams, glaciers, and the formation of massive icebergs can be seen. A time series shows the movement of iceberg B15A, an iceberg kilometers in length which broke off of the Ross Ice Shelf in.

The tour travels around the world in a single "shot"; there are no. Now, let's watch the NASA video, A Tour of the Cryosphere (below), to learn more about how the cryosphere changes on a variety of timescales, and how the cryosphere impacts the lives of everyone on Earth.

As you watch the video: Take notes in your notebook about things that are new, interesting, or confusing to you. A Tour of the Cryosphere: Earth's Frozen Assets. NASA Satellites Yield Best-Ever Antarctic Maps. - Thanks to satellites, NASA has the best maps to help researchers get around the huge land of ice and snow.

AGU Conference: NASA Tip Sheet. Oceans cover seventy percent of our planet's surface. But, how much of that is frozen. At any given time during the year, sea ice (frozen seawater) covers millions of square kilometers of the ocean.

In the Arctic, some sea ice survives year after year, whereas most Antarctic sea ice melts away each summer and reforms the following winter. An Intro to climate - This animation leads viewers across the icy reaches of Antarctica, the shrinking ice cap around the North Pole, and other frozen, terrestrial regions of the globe.

It conveys. It has been said that the frozen parts of our planet, also known as the cryosphere, may be the proverbial 'canary in the coal mine' when it comes to climate. FROZEN brings the Earth alive. Turning in space, the sphere becomes a portal onto a virtual planet, complete with churning, swirling depictions of huge natural forces moving below.

FROZEN features the global cryosphere, those places on Earth where the temperature doesn't generally rise above water's freezing point.The cold regions of Earth influence weather for the entire world. The cryosphere also includes frozen soil--also called "permafrost" if it is frozen all year long.

Permafrost areas store greenhouse gases like carbon and methane, causing scientists to study the effect on climate as overall temperatures warm.When scientists talk about the cryosphere, they mean the places on Earth where water is in its solid form, frozen into ice or snow.
