Sediment and solute fluxes at the Igarka field site, Russian Sub-Arctic; 13. Variability and controls of solute and sedimentary fluxes in Sub-Arctic and Arctic environments; Part IV. Solute and Sedimentary Fluxes in Sub-Antarctic and Antarctic Environments: 14. Environmental impact on contemporary solute and sedimentary fluxes in Antarctica: current knowledge; 15. Solute and solid cascade system in the Antarctic oases; 16. Environmental controls on sediment composition and particle fluxes over the Antarctic continental shelf; 17. Solute and sedimentary fluxes on King George Island; 18. Dynamics of the Antarctica ice cap; 19. Solute and sediment fluxes from rivers and streams in the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Antarctica; Part V. Solute and Sedimentary Fluxes in Alpine/Mountain Environments: 20. Chemical denudation in partly glacierized mountain catchments of the fjord landscape in western Norway: contemporary rates, environmental controls and possible effects of climate change; 21. Sediment delivery from headwater slope systems and relief development in steep mountain valleys in western Norway; 22. Suspended sediment dynamics in the proglacial zone of the rapidly retreating Castle Creek Glacier, British Columbia, Canada; 23. Sedimentary fluxes in Himalaya; 24. Rates of slope and channel processes in the Reintal Valley, Bavarian Alps; 25. Comparative analysis of sediment routing in two different alpine catchments; 26. Controls and variability of solute and sedimentary fluxes in alpine/mountain environments; Part VI. Quantitative Analysis of Solute and Sedimentary Fluxes in Cold Climate Environments: 27. Environmental drivers, spatial variability and rates of chemical and mechanical fluvial denudation in selected glacierized and non-glacierized cold climate catchment geosystems: from coordinated field data generation to integration and modeling; 28. Summary of key findings from Arctic, Antarctic and mountain environments; Index.
