Aims and Scope
The international journal Sciences in Cold and Arid Regions, is devoted to publishing the latest research achievements in processes and the patterns of the Earth surface system in cold and arid regions.
Research in cold regions 1) emphasize particularly on the cold-region-characterized physical, chemical and biological processes and their interactions, and on the response of cryosphere to global change and human activities as well as their effects on environment and the acclimatizable strategies; 2) focus on the objects of glacier, snow, river, lake, sea ice, permafrost and seasonal frozen ground, and periglacial geomorphology, etc.; and 3) think much of cold regions engineering and technology.
Research in arid regions 1) emphasize particularly on the arid-region-characterized physical, chemical and biological processes and their interactions, and on the response of arid regions to global change and human activities as well as their effects on environment and the acclimatizable strategies; 2) focus on the objects of desert, oasis, loess, and aeolian landforms, etc.; and 3) support integrated studies on mountain-desert-oasis system in arid watershed with water resources as masterstroke, so as to provide reliable technological support for water safety, ecology safety and food safety in arid regions.
