In the works for more than a decade, proposed legislation to protect glacial and permafrost environments in Chile suffers from uncertainties and omissions that could sow conflict instead of solutions.
For the first time, researchers have captured continuous data on the abrupt changes and activities happening at a glacier’s calving front.
Infrastructure projects like roads and dams destabilize slopes and compound the effects of glacial floods and avalanches, scientists say.
New research is helping scientists understand how Arctic dust created by receding glaciers affects local air quality and global climate.
Using data from weather stations on and around Mount Everest, scientists find that the Khumbu Glacier receives most of its moisture from the Bay of Bengal.
India’s first regional climate change assessment warns of accelerated glacier melt.
In environments raked by glaciers, tall peaks like Denali still survive, held up by surprisingly thin crust.
New research focuses on the bubbling and bathtub-like sounds of a glacier.
After comparing the climatic conditions at dozens of glaciers worldwide, researchers find that precipitation, not temperature, is the leading environmental factor driving glacial erosion.
Using autonomous kayaks, researchers carried out measurements of water properties near the terminus of LeConte Glacier and showed that ice/ocean interactions are more complex than thought.
