Kaab, 2007. Climate change impacts on mountain glaciers and Permafrost

A. Kaab, M. C., B. Raup, C. Schneider (2007). "Climate change impacts on mountain glaciers and permafrost." Global and Planetary Change 56: 7-9.

-IPCC formally recognizes glaciers as the best terrestrial indicator of climate change.

-Permafrost reacts in a much delayed and attenuated way to climate change compared to glaciers.

This paper was a very brief editorial. I may reference a few things out of it for my paper.
