The Meaning of Ice is about the Inuit relationship with sea ice. Focusing on three communities, the book presents the annual cycle of ice and associated activity, discusses the meaning of sea ice for each location, and compares the ways in which each group of people has adapted to their environment and is now adjusting as that environment changes. The Meaning of Ice was written by a team of researchers, including local residents, who spent time together in Barrow, Alaska; Clyde River, Nunavut, Canada; and Qaanaaq, Greenland. In each place they traveled on the ice, learned about local ice terminology and dynamics, and shared stories and ideas. The format of the book reflects the various ways the team members know sea ice, through the words and images of local residents organized around themes such as "home," "food," and "freedom." Maps, calendars, and the rich Inuit vocabulary for sea ice provide additional insights into the Inuit relationship with sea ice.

Over the past 20 years the study of the frozen Arctic and Southern Oceans and sub-arctic seas has progressed at a remarkable pace. This third edition of Sea Ice gives insight into the very latest understanding of the how sea ice is formed, how we measure (and model) its extent, the biology that lives within and associated with sea ice and the effect of climate change on its distribution. How sea ice influences the oceanography of underlying waters and the influences that sea ice has on humans living in Arctic regions are also discussed. Featuring twelve new chapters, this edition follows two previous editions (2001 and 2010), and the need for this latest update exhibits just how rapidly the science of sea ice is developing. The 27 chapters are written by a team of more than 50 of the worlds’ leading experts in their fields. These combine to make the book the most comprehensive introduction to the physics, chemistry, biology and geology of sea ice that there is. This third edition of Sea Ice will be a key resource for all policy makers, researchers and students who work with the frozen oceans and seas.

The polar regions are the 'canary in the coal mine' of climate change: they are likely to be hit the hardest and fastest. This comprehensive textbook provides an accessible introduction to the scientific study of polar environments against a backdrop of climate change and the wider global environment. The book assembles diverse information on polar environmental characteristics in terrestrial and oceanic domains, and describes the ongoing changes in climate, the oceans, and components of the cryosphere. Recent significant changes in the polar region caused by global warming are explored: shrinking Arctic sea ice, thawing permafrost, accelerating loss of mass from glaciers and ice sheets, and rising ocean temperatures. These rapidly changing conditions are discussed in the context of the paleoclimatic history of the polar regions from the Eocene to the Anthropocene. Future projections for these regions during the twenty-first century are discussed. The text is illustrated with many color figures and tables, and includes further reading lists, review questions for each chapter, and a glossary.

Forms of indigenous knowledges and cultural expressions are found in libraries, archives or museums. Often the "legal" copyright is not held by the indigenous people's groups, who believe that the true expression of their culture can only be sustained and remain dynamic in its proper cultural context. The aim is to respect these ways of knowing while appreciating the cultural memory institutions' attempts to transmit them to the next generation.

Indigenous rights to heritage have only recently become the subject of academic scholarship. This collection aims to fill that gap by offering the fruits of a unique conference on this topic organised by the University of Lapland with the help of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights. The conference made clear that important information on Indigenous cultural heritage has remained unexplored or has not been adequately linked with specific actors (such as WIPO) or specific issues (such as free, prior and informed consent). Indigenous leaders explained the impact that disrespect of their cultural heritage has had on their identity, well-being and development. Experts in social sciences explained the intricacies of indigenous cultural heritage. Human rights scholars talked about the inability of current international law to fully address the injustices towards indigenous communities. Representatives of International organisations discussed new positive developments. This wealth of experiences, materials, ideas and knowledge is contained in this important volume.

Als die Wege in die Antarktis noch »heroischen Charakter « hatten, machte sich Apsley Cherry-Garrard, Spross einer altenglischen Familie, erst 24-jährig auf, dem berühmten Polarforscher Scott zum Südpol zu folgen. Die Expedition misslang; Scott und einige seiner Gefährten verloren ihr Leben. Cherry-Garrard jedoch gelang die Heimkehr, zahnlos fast, aber von der Berufung beseelt, die Geschichte dieser unmenschlich entbehrungsreichen Mission aufzuschreiben. Die Geschichte eines Scheiterns, aber zugleich auch ein Monument der Freundschaft und des Idealismus: wie man sich in die ewige Nacht aufmacht, nur um das Ei eines Kaiserpinguins zu finden.
