Papers are invited for a new special collection presenting advances in modeling in glaciology that improve understanding of glaciers and ice sheets and their interactions with the Earth system.
Modeling icebergs as Lagrangian elements held together by numerical bonds provides insights into coupled exchanges of heat, freshwater, and momentum between large icebergs and the ocean.
A recent paper in Reviews of Geophysics discusses how ocean tides affect the motion of, and loss of ice from, the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets.
