Glaciers are crucial water resources and important sea level contributors. To accurately model glacier evolution, their mass balance and ice flow processes must be accounted for.
Networks of valleys provide puzzling hints of running water on the surface of the Red Planet. New research suggests that some tributaries could have formed from icy sheets thousands of meters thick.
Antarctica’s Thwaites and Pine Island Glaciers are melting faster than they have in the past 5,500 years, new evidence shows. Against expectations, their pasts have been remarkably stable.
Los Himalayas han perdido 40% de su masa glaciar desde la Pequeña Edad de Hielo. El Este de Nepal y Bután han sufrido pérdidas de forma más acelerada.
By studying bits of rock scooped up by ancient glaciers, researchers have pinned down that recent glacial variability was driven, in part, by changes in the direction of Earth’s axis of rotation.
An international initiative aims to collect a comprehensive airborne data set from the Antarctic Ice Sheet margin to better estimate ice discharge and sea level contributions today and in the future.
Scientists are updating ice stream models to understand the ways in which deep groundwater systems impact ice flow.
Scientists dive in—metaphorically—to Lake Snow Eagle, only recently revealed through ice-penetrating radar.
In our June issue of Eos, we home in on the unique ways researchers are using maps to better understand Earth and beyond.
Changes to the support, culture, and community organization of U.S. glaciology are needed to advance understanding of glacial change and better predict rising seas and other ice loss impacts.
