Cryosphere and Economy Research Paper

… Cryosphere and Economy

The Cyroshpere describes collectively all forms of water that is frozen at the surface of the earth such as sea ice, glaciers, ice caps, ice sheets, rivers, snow cover permafrost, seasonal frozen ground and solid precipitation. Snow is precipitation that is made up of ice crystals. The snow crystals form when cold temperatures and humidity come together in the atmosphere. Snow continues to fall on the ground as long as air temperatures are below freezing point.

When temperatures go way below freezing point liquid water turns solid and this is what is known as ice.ice exists in glaciers, frozen ground, icebergs, sea ice, and ice shelves.sea ice is formed when the water found in oceans cools below freezing point. Glaciers are thick…. [read more]


Risks of Climate Change Research Paper

… Increases in bushfire frequency and intensity have the potential to increase rates of damage to buildings and structures, especially those in non-urban areas.

Drier conditions may lead to increased ground movement and changes in groundwater. Higher temperatures and more solar radiation could amplify degradation of materials.

II. KEY IMPACTS ON WATER SUPPLY AND RESOURCES

Key impacts stated for case studies conducted in England list sea flooding of saltwater into aquifers may be a problem in some areas. Stated specifically is: "The expected rise in sea level as a result of climate change will increase the risk of the sea overtopping current defenses or encroaching on undefended land leading to flooding. Coastal flooding is also likely to increase in frequency due to predicted increases in storm…. [read more]


Social Unit Essay

… The adaptive capacity of Canadian northern and mountain residents is something that is also discussed in this article, because these people will be affected by the changes to their environment that are occurring as the result of the global fossil fuel revolution.

Relation to Globalization

The most important thing one should know about globalization is that it is not related to one specific thing (i.e. population, environment, economy). Globalization is the result of the confluence of many forces. These forces are not discrete and distinctive, but rather they are interlinked. The globalization of trade and transportation has effects on Canada's Arctic, which in turn will affect migration patterns of humans and animals, Canada's economic role in the world and may represent a shift in Canadian….

Global Warming: Fact Thesis

… The Climate commitment studies show that even if the greenhouse gasses are somehow stabilized at the levels observed in year 2000 then a further warming of some 0.5 degree centigrade (0.9 degree Fahrenheit) would still occur.

"The external forcing describes the processes which are external to the overall climate system which influences the climate" (Kemp 1994), here it should be noted that these processes aren't necessarily external to our planet. There are many types of external forces like the radioactive forcing which occur due to the changes in the atmospheric composition, changes in the solar luminosity, the volcanic eruptions as well as the variations in our planet's orbit around Sun.

The attribution of the recently recorded climate change focuses mainly on the mentioned above first…. [read more]


Environmental Challenges Research Paper

… "Multiple lines of evidence" shows that "the climate is changing across our planet, largely as a result of human activities" (IPCC, 2013).

The most "compelling evidence of climate change," the IPCC explains, is that the scientific observations offer "unequivocal" evidence derived from the atmosphere, land, oceans and cryosphere" (IPCC, 2013). Sea levels are rising and global temperature records show increases in atmospheric temperatures.

In 1992, there were 170 nations that agreed to limit fossil fuel emissions at the Framework Convention on Climate Change, but according to an article in the peer-reviewed journal PLOS One, the "…stark reality is that global emissions have accelerated," and what makes that more frightening is that efforts are underway to continue to "massively expand fossil fuel extraction" (Hansen, et al.,….
