Researchers tracked 19 maritime glaciers in Kenai Fjords National Park over several decades and found that tidewater glaciers tended to experience less ice loss than other types of glaciers.
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.
Sediment cores from northwestern China reveal freezing conditions during the Late Triassic killed off many forms of life—but not dinosaurs.
Winter is fading away, but the answers may be beneath the ice; a new collection on winter limnology tackles the unknowns.
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.
