International Workshop on Airborne Geodesy and Geophysics with Focus on Polar Applications; Dresden, Germany, 19–21 April 2017
Researchers develop a mathematical method of modeling tabular icebergs, like the one that broke away from an Antarctic ice shelf earlier this year.
As temperatures continue to rise, snow-dwelling microbes could accelerate melting and influence downstream ecosystems.
A Delaware-sized slab of ice just broke off Antarctica. Now what?
A recent paper in Reviews of Geophysics discusses how climate change could affect ice streams, ice sheets, ice shelves, and sea ice in Antarctica.
A recent paper in Reviews of Geophysics describes the atmospheric and oceanic processes that are causing ice loss in the Antarctic.
Scientists model the impact of environmental warming on ice drainage basins in the less studied East Antarctica.
The record high temperature for regions south of 60°S latitude is a balmy 19.8°C (67.6°F), recorded 30 January 1982 at a research station on Signy Island.
A new model examines how eddies in the Antarctic Circumpolar Current affect volume transport of the world's strongest current.
Clues in seafloor sediments reveal that relatively warm water beneath western Antarctic ice shelves, a major factor in today's massive ice sheet retreat, also fueled some past ice loss.
