Scientists use seismic stations to study ice shelf vibrations generated by ocean waves to better understand their impact on the integrity of the Ross Ice Shelf.
Scientists saw hints in satellite data of dramatic geologic features under thousands of meters of ice in a little-probed part of East Antarctica. Now they are using airborne radar to explore further.
Using ice core records from West Antarctica, researchers look back at the past 300 years of snowfall over the Amundsen Sea.
Scientists studying tiny glaciers in Switzerland created models to determine how the world's diminutive glaciers would fare under rising temperatures.
New research that may presage effects of climate change on this species looks back 22,000 years, finding robust growth in the East Antarctic population as melting followed the last ice age.
Seismometers could help scientists monitor elusive fluctuations in water discharge from glaciers that flow into the ocean.
Arctic glacier aquifer may respond more rapidly to climate change than larger aquifers found on the Greenland ice sheet.
A new modeling tool easily computes the elastic response of changes in loading on Earth's surface to high resolution. Scientists test this tool using finely detailed data on glaciers' mass changes.

Researchers race to measure and predict the Greenland ice sheet's seaward slide.
