Crevasses are a feature of ice sheets but how deep they extend has been a mystery. Now crevasse traces have been visually identified to 265 meters in a borehole in a fast-moving outlet glacier.
NASA’s ICESat-2 satellite recorded the cleaving of a 315-billion-ton iceberg from Amery Ice Shelf in 2019, as well as years of subtle cracking and splitting prior to the calving event.
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.
Here’s what a century of ice melt looks like on the Alps’ highest peak.
Seismic signals detected hundreds of kilometers away from Greenland glaciers reveal the calving style and iceberg size.
Firn aquifers—pockets of meltwater beneath the surface of an ice sheet—could have far-reaching impacts on subglacial hydrology, a new study finds.
New radio sounding study finds little evidence of lakes under Antarctica’s Recovery Glacier.
A new chronology shows that ice-free areas existed along the British Columbia coast earlier than previously thought.
Barry, a giant in climate and cryospheric sciences, pioneered the archival of computer data and traveled the world to share his vision with others.
New observations of surface ice velocity over northern Greenland challenge current assumptions used in ice sheet models to model the deformation mechanisms that govern ice flow.
