1918. A First World War battlefield becomes the cosmic battleground for two vampires, as Karl von Wultendorf struggles to free himself from his domineering maker, Kristian.
This is a unique, timely and engaging text with wide ranging geographical coverage. The book brings together, for the first time, information about a vast array of hazards associated with ice and snow, spanning both well know phenomenon (e.g. avalanches) and the less familiar (e.g. river ice jams and ice storms) using in many cases material which is rarely seen outside advanced academic research books and journals. The range of ice-related hazards will be introduced and the significance of the current global warming context discussed. Broad physical models of glacial, periglacial and atmospheric cold environments are presented to provide a scientific context for discussion of the human issues of risk, vulnerability impact and mitigation.Key Features: Wide ranging geographical coverage (the Americas, Asia, Australasia, Antarctic & Europe) Localized hazards (avalanches, life storms, landslides) contrasted to those with wider reaching effects (artic ice loss, ice sheet retreat and wide spread permafrost decay) Includes the latest developments in the field Each chapter includes hazards overview, summery, conclusions, potential projects exercise and key references Includes a supplementary website with figures from the book and further references Each chapter includes a hazards overview, summary, conclusions, potential projects exercise and key references
