As climate change persists, amplified temperature increases in mountains and changes in precipitation will diminish snow and ice.
Geologically young regions of Pluto’s southern hemisphere were likely resurfaced by cryovolcanism, data from the New Horizons spacecraft reveal.
A new study that cues into the formation of ice cones for storing glacial meltwater reveals how the structures can be built more efficiently and which climatic conditions work best.
Poorly understood ice multiplication processes, not aerosols, may determine the microphysical properties of climatologically important clouds over the Southern Ocean.
A super salty spring in the Canadian Arctic provides insights key to detecting life on a distant ocean world.
A new algorithm suggests that only a small fraction of meteorites present on the White Continent’s surface have been recovered to date.
Laboratory experiments re-create the thin, icy pedestals that support some rocks in nature, revealing that sublimation plays a key role in the formation of these rare and beautiful structures.
Anyone seeing photographs of glacier and ice sheets from above clearly sees that they flow; recent laboratory tests on ice further reveal the conditions that control just how fast this happens.
In our July issue, Eos looks at the collection, study, and storage of cores—from sediment drilled up from the age of the dinosaurs to tree rings as big as a house.
Spaceborne lidar shows that more ice than expected is leaving the tropical tropopause layer in the atmosphere.
