Mountain environments are often perceived to be austere, isolated, and inhospitable. In fact, these areas are of immense value to mankind, providing direct life support to close to 10 percent of the world's population and sustaining a wide variety of species - many of which are endemic to this environment.

Environmental Change in Mountains and Uplands. Publisher: Routledge. Working within a broad temporal scale, it draws upon paleoenvironmental records to document past changes which have occured in the absence of major anthropogenic influences, as well as utilising modelling as a means to assessing future environmental change. 9780340706367, 9780340706381, 0340706368, 0340706384, 9780340706367, 0340706368.

Sea level change is discussed under the uncertainties of response to warming of the Greenland and Antarctic ice . A very interesting chapter on asteroid and comet impacts as initiator of environmental change is included in the book.

Sea level change is discussed under the uncertainties of response to warming of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets and the effect of CO2 gas mitigation in the coming decades. The effect of sea level rise on submarine landslides and as a consequence ocean-wide tsunami is analysed. Coastal erosion and other geomorphological effects of sea level rise are left out here. A very interesting chapter on asteroid and comet impacts as initiator of environmental change is included in the book

Climate change dramatically influences mountains environment. Clearing slopes for skiing tracks and developing tourist infrastructure in mountain areas can seriously modify the environment.

Climate change dramatically influences mountains environment. Mountains have warmed up considerably for the past 100 years and the warming will keep growing. The overcrowding and seasonal populations of tourists can exhaust the water supplies and waste disposal facilities.

Mountain environments are often perceived to be austere, isolated, and inhospitable. In fact, these areas are of immense value to mankind, providing direct life support to close to 10 percent of the world's population and sustaining a wide variety of species - many of which are endemic to this environment.'Environmental Change in Mountains and Uplands' provides detailed account of the fragile and marginal physical and socio-economic systems which make up the world's mountain regions. Discussing the direct and indirect impacts of human interference on environmental ecosystems, it then turns to the social and economic consequences of such environmental change - both upon the mountain environment itself and upon the populations who depend on mountain resources for their economic sustenance.This book includes a review of possible implications for adaption and mitigation strategies in a global context. Working within a broad temporal scale, it draws upon paleoenvironmental records to document past changes which have occured in the absence of major anthropogenic influences, as well as utilising modelling as a means to assessing future environmental change.
