Ice

 

 

 

 

Changes in snow and ice-including melting glaciers, ice sheets, and sea ice- have immediate consequences for land and ocean heating, and for terrestrial and marine ecosystems. IPY investigators will work to record and understand the extent, rate, and impact of snow and ice changes and their integrated impact on global sea level.
