As climate change persists, amplified temperature increases in mountains and changes in precipitation will diminish snow and ice.
Living in Geologic Time: The making, breaking, and backpacking of North America’s Continental Divide.
Using susceptibility models to forecast the potential locations of landslides is a key tool in mitigating landslide hazard, but are existing approaches appropriate in dynamic mountainous settings?
The Matterhorn in the Swiss Alps is in constant motion, gently swaying back and forth about once every 2 seconds.
Rainfall varies with elevation, and such precipitation gradients can have profound and often counterintuitive effects on topography.
Integrated approaches are needed to understand and respond to changes in tropical mountain ecosystems and communities brought about by receding glaciers and changes in land use.
The geologic record suggests that despite Earth’s hot, thin crust during the Proterozoic, mountains were still able to form thanks to an extinct style of crustal deformation.
Three of the remaining glaciers in the Pyrenees mountain range stopped flowing in the past decade.
As Earth’s climate changes at an unprecedented rate, the Surface Atmosphere Integrated Field Laboratory is studying precipitation on an unprecedented scale.
