About this series
The Springer Earth System Sciences series focuses on interdisciplinary research linking the lithosphere (geosphere), atmosphere, biosphere, cryosphere, and hydrosphere that build the system earth.

It covers the entire research area of earth system sciences including, but not limited to, Earth System Modeling, Glaciology, Climatology, and Human-Environment/Earth interactions. Springer Earth System Sciences includes peer-reviewed monographs, edited volumes, textbooks, and conference proceedings.
