As climate change persists, amplified temperature increases in mountains and changes in precipitation will diminish snow and ice.
This device allows scientists to measure how much snow is trapped in canopies and predict changes to snowpack—a critical factor in annual water availability.
On Earth, the water cycle is a dominant climate force. On Mars, it’s the dust.
A new study finds the lofted pollutants came from major European cities, but further study is required to fully understand the plastics’ transport and deposition processes.
El diseño de los techos en el norte de China cambió a lo largo de siglos en respuesta a eventos de nieve extremos, sugiere nueva investigación.
Roof design in northern China changed over centuries in response to extreme snow events, new research suggests.
A new study explores a possible proxy for seasonal freshwater input that could elucidate changes in alpine snowpack as the planet warms.
Shrinking snowpack, thawing permafrost, and shifting precipitation patterns have widespread consequences. Can new technologies—and public policies—help communities adapt?
A cultural shift is underway to transform outdoor buffs into stalwarts for climate action. Will it come soon enough to save their sport?
The nonprofit, donation-fueled program engages K–12 students by combining the fun of playing in snow with the science of the cryosphere.
