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.
The impacts of the Antarctic Ice Sheet response to climate change will have global consequences for millions living near the coast. It’s just a matter of when.
Using cosmogenic nuclide dating, scientists determined a 10-meter core just below the surface to be over a million years old.
A new special collection in JGR: Planets explores how ice has played a key role in the development of the landscape on the surface of Ceres.
The model was previously used to describe the behavior of ferromagnets in the presence of external magnetic fields.
A new model suggests that many objects in the outer asteroid belt may still harbor deposits that formed around the time of their accretion.
Scientists used a transparent gel and high-speed photography to figure out how cracks form and spread. What they found could help explain earthquakes and fracturing glaciers.
A robot that can inch up icy surfaces may help scientists reach new heights in some of Earth’s most dangerous and remote landscapes.
Conditions are right for “penitentes” up to 15 meters high to form on the Jovian moon, new research shows. The spires might prevent a lander from exploring Europa’s equatorial region.
