The aim of this course is to introduce the cryosphere as an important and rapidly changing yet relatively unknown part of the Earth’s system and a biome that contains distinct ecosystems and communities. Emphasis will be placed on recent and/or current research by the lecturers. This course is principally focused on ecosystem-scale processes within the cryosphere and is complementary to the courses Winter Ecology and Polar Ecology. The course is in English.
