A new modeling strategy could improve streamflow predictions in places where mountain snow is a critical source of water.
Images taken covertly in the 1970s have taken on a new purpose in a recent glaciology study.
A low-cost, two-antenna GPS setup could enable valuable snow measurements in remote locations, improving predictions of runoff and avalanche risk.
During the past 70 years, Peruvian engineers virtually eliminated the risks posed by glacial lake floods. But climate change and a political blind eye are increasing the dangers once again.
The first use of Advanced Scatterometer radar data to determine melt duration on an Antarctic ice shelf shows the season has decreased by up to 2 days per year during the extended 21st century record.
Investments in snow pay high-dollar dividends.
Rarely made detailed measurements of carbon dioxide and methane under lake ice reveal a story more complex than simple models of gas buildup, with surprising findings for climate change impacts.
Water-carved valleys may be relatively young, challenging assumptions about the history of the Red Planet's climate.
Limited observational data sets and incomplete surface energy balance models constrain understanding of the driving processes for Greenland's ice sheet.
