About the Author

Richard Armstrong is a Senior Research Scientist at the National Snow and Ice Data Center, the World Data Center for Glaciology and the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Science at the University of Colorado. His current research includes remote sensing and evaluation of fluctuations in snow cover and glaciers as indicators of climate change. Eric Brun is Head of Research at Meteo-France and Director of the Centre National de Recherche Meteorologiques. He is a specialist in snow and avalanches and developed original methods to assess the impact of climate change on snow cover and alpine rivers.


Review of the hardback: '...very readable ... a very good overview of what every serious climate scientist, both modeller or experimentalist, should know about snow and its interaction with the atmosphere.' Antarctic Science
"Linked to energy and moisture, snow cover is an important component of the climate, and these studies look at how advances in snow-climate science, such as the use of satellites and snow-modeling physics, can lead to a better understanding of climate change." - Weatherwise
"This volume will be sought by snow scientists everywhere for the comprehensive treatment of these important subjects. Each well-illustrated chapter is supported by comprehensive lists of references. The entire volume is clearly printed, with a brief index and an expanded list of contents. ... Highly recommended." - N. Caine, CHOICE
"The long-awaited Snow and Climate has been edited and written expertly. The editors have achieved a commendable continuity between chapters in terms of style, quality, level of detail, and use of figures and tables. The authors have provided a comprehensive coverage of topics along with ample references to allow someone starting in snow science, or someone who already has expertise in one subfield, to embark on a new research endeavor. This volume is appropriate for classroom use in graduate or advanced undergraduate courses, or as a reference for anyone studying snow science with the prerequisite physics background to understand the basic concepts and partial differential equations. Snow and Climate is an important contribute and should assume a prominent place in libraries and on the shelves of snow scientists and graduate students." Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society
