  This book considers ten different glaciated regions around the individual glaciers, and offers a different tune to the same chorus of glacier volume loss in the face of climate change. Author Bios Mauri Pelto is Professor of Environmental Science at Nichols College in Massachusetts, USA. Glaciers are considered a key and an iconic indicator of climate change. The World Glacier Monitoring Service has noted that global alpine balance has been negative for 35 consecutive years. This highlights the dire future that alpine glaciers goal of this volume is to tell the story, glacier by glacier, of response to climate change from Glaciers and Environmental Change. mainly due to the sensitivity of small glaciers to climate change, with an APAC of −% ± % per year and APVC of −% ± % per year, and the. Our research addresses physical and human dimensions of environmental change in glacierized landscapes. We are interested in the nature, extent, and impact of changes over different scales of space and time. We incorporate different field and computer-based methods, including glacial geology and geomorphology, hydrology, meteorological monitoring, mapping with global positioning system (GPS.
