UNEP (Editor) (2007): Highlights of the Global Outlook for Ice and Snow. In: UNEP (Editor) (2007): Global Outlook for Ice and Snow. Kenya, 7-18. URL [Accessed: 06.05.2010].

Ice, snow and climate change are closely linked. The Global Outlook for Ice and Snow investigates those linkages. It also presents information on the trends in ice and snow, the outlook for this century and beyond and the consequences to ecosystems and human well-being of these changes. It covers all parts of the cryosphere (the world of ice): snow, land ice, sea ice, river and lake ice, and frozen ground. The Global Outlook for Ice and Snow was written by more than 70 scientists from around the world. The full report can be downloaded from: http://www.unep.org/geo/geo_ice/
