Call for paper/abstract Deadline extended to April 11th.

There is a special session: Understanding and mitigation of cryosphere hazards.

This session focuses on the identifying, monitoring, modeling, and mitigation of cryosphere hazards. The cryosphere hazards involve any negative impacts on the surrounding environment and social economy from dynamic processes of cryospheric components. It includes glacier hazards, frozen ground hazards, snow hazards, sea ice hazards, ice jam and ice flood, and so on. With the influences of global warming and human activities, the fasten retreat of ice in cryosphere leads to more hazards, even some new hazards. Existing evidences have shown that the extreme events were increased in past several decades. The mitigation of cryosphere hazards has been paid more attention by both of natural and social scientists.
