Latest Marco Tedesco Stories
Lakes often form on top of a glacier and drain onto the bedrock below, lubricating a glacier's movements as a result. A new study from an international group of researchers has found the way these lakes drain can affect the velocity, extent and direction of a glacier's progress.
There are almost as many global climate models as there are climate scientists. Even with all of these models, however, it's very difficult to pin down how warming temperatures globally will affect any specific region.
The summer melting season in Greenland usually lasts from June when the first puddles of meltwater appear, to September when temperatures begin to cool again.
The Greenland ice sheet can experience extreme melting even when temperatures don’t hit record highs, according to a new analysis.
Scientists reported on Friday that Greenland's icesheet shed a record amount of melted snow and ice in 2010.
High-Resolution Video, Photos Available Upon Request New York (Vocus/PRWEB) January 20, 2011 New research shows that 2010 set new records for the melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet, expected to be a major contributor to projected sea level rises in coming decades. "This past melt season was exceptional, with melting in some areas stretching up to 50 days longer than average,â€ said Dr.
Marco Tedesco Says Record Low Resulted From Simultaneous Positive Phases for Two Climate Drivers.
The northern part of the Greenland ice sheet experienced extreme snowmelt during the summer of 2008, with large portions of the area subject to record melting days, according to Dr. Marco Tedesco, Assistant Professor of Earth & Atmospheric Sciences at The City College of New York (CCNY), and colleagues.
A new NASA-supported study reports that 2007 marked an overall rise in the melting trend over the entire Greenland ice sheet and, remarkably, melting in high-altitude areas was greater than ever at 150 percent more than average.
In 2006, Greenland experienced more days of melting snow and at higher altitudes than average over the past 18 years, according to a new NASA-funded project using satellite observations.
