Ice-penetrating radar revealed a 31-kilometer impact crater—one of the world’s largest—in northwestern Greenland that might have been formed fewer than 20,000 years ago.
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.
Field measurements from the Bowdoin Glacier show that entrainment of deep water into upwelling glacial discharge delivers crucial nutrients to the surface of the surrounding fjord.
Slippage began hours before a landslide-driven tsunami destroyed a village in northwestern Greenland.

Scientists are still investigating the cause, fuel source, and overall impact of the weeks-long blaze.
The fires are stoking worries about the vast island’s thawing permafrost.
A novel method uses shifting bedrock to trace pulses of mass that propagate down a glacier.
An analysis of tide gauge records and physical models shows acceleration of sea level rise on the East Coast due to melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet is especially pronounced south of 40°N latitude.
For 2 weeks on the Greenland ice cap, scientists tested an instrument that might help us find life on icy moons with oceans beneath their crusts.
