Cryospheric science studies the portion of the Earth's surface where water is in a solid form, usually snow or ice. This includes ice sheets, glaciers, sea ice, freshwater ice, snow, and frozen ground (or permafrost). The Cryosphere Focus Group has over 1000 members with primary AGU affiliation. The Focus Group is managed by an Executive Committee, who are in regular communication over email and meet once per year during the Fall meeting. Read More
