Novel observations and inventive analyses of glacial discharge in Greenland have revealed new insights into the irregular and chaotic nature of ice-ocean interactions at glacial calving fronts.
The transmission of sunlight through Arctic sea ice depends on the presence of ice, snow, and melt ponds, data collected over 6 years reveal.
Research helps allay concerns about discrepancies between atmospheric chemistry models and historical direct measurements.
The first application of aboveground neutron sensing to evaluate alpine snowpacks indicates that this method can reliably detect average snow depth and water content across intermediate distances.
Despite careful planning, there can be many uncertainties and unknowns about doing field research in remote locations.
All of the ships should be “science ready,” whereas one should be “fully science capable,” according to new recommendations from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
Seismometers could help scientists monitor elusive fluctuations in water discharge from glaciers that flow into the ocean.
First comprehensive analysis of deep radar data gives insight into the dynamics and history of the Greenland Ice Sheet.
Workshop on Microstructure in Snow Microwave Radiative Transfer;
Reading, United Kingdom, 6–8 August 2014
Using satellite-tracked devices that can withstand multiple collisions with ice blocks, scientists can now track water as it melts and swirls through fjords.
