The Cryosphere: Present and Future

Ice sheets, glaciers, and sea ice are are changing dramatically and will continue to change in the future. Ice loss results in sea level rise and changes the reflectivity of the Earth. Researchers integrate fieldwork, laboratory analysis, and modelling to understand the underlying physical mechanisms of ice variability.

In this collection, we celebrate the achievements of the cryosphere research community by showcasing Nature Communications publications on this topic.
