Permafrost thawing associated with climate warming increases contributions to streamflow by deeper, cooler groundwater flow paths, which may result in lower summer stream temperatures.
Using data from weather stations on and around Mount Everest, scientists find that the Khumbu Glacier receives most of its moisture from the Bay of Bengal.
Papers are invited for a new special collection presenting advances in modeling in glaciology that improve understanding of glaciers and ice sheets and their interactions with the Earth system.
After comparing the climatic conditions at dozens of glaciers worldwide, researchers find that precipitation, not temperature, is the leading environmental factor driving glacial erosion.
Firn aquifers—pockets of meltwater beneath the surface of an ice sheet—could have far-reaching impacts on subglacial hydrology, a new study finds.
Modeling icebergs as Lagrangian elements held together by numerical bonds provides insights into coupled exchanges of heat, freshwater, and momentum between large icebergs and the ocean.
New radio sounding study finds little evidence of lakes under Antarctica’s Recovery Glacier.
Satellite data reveal how colorful algae are melting the Greenland ice sheet.
Accurately modeling melt rates in specific ice shelf locations is critical for forecasting how Antarctica’s ice sheet will respond to climate change.
With so many eyes in the sky, residents living downstream from dams now have many ways to see—and prepare for—potential dangers.
