|Changes in the cyrosphere can have significant impacts on water supply, transportation, infrastructure, hunting, fisheries, recreation, and ecology. These handouts explain what the cryosphere is, explore the effects a changing cryosphere can have on these aspects of human life and provide overviews of GCW. Are each two pages, meant to be printed front and back on a single sheet of paper.
|A tri-fold brochure that gives an overview of GCW is available as a PDF file. It is set up to be printed on US Letter size paper, but could be printed on any size paper if it is unscaled or scaled to keep the aspect ratio. Print it two-sided (short-edge binding), trim the edges, and fold it into three sections.

GCW "Cryosphere Circles" Figures
|With a white background (not transparent):|
|With a transparent background:|
These are nice figures to illustrate the different components of the cryosphere. The one on the left has the GCW in the center to indicate that GCW addresses all of the cryosphere. The one on the right is the original, which was created for the IGOS Cryosphere Theme (2007). Click on the image for the full size figure.
GCW Word Cloud
A word cloud gives greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in some text, in this case the GCW Implementation Plan. It shows that GCW is about the cryosphere, data, information, observations, and needs. These word clouds were generated at wordle.net. Click on an image above for the full size figure.
