Latest Retreat of glaciers since Stories
By combining climate and glacier models, scientists headed by Ben Marzeion from the University of Innsbruck have found unambiguous evidence for anthropogenic glacier mass loss in recent decades.
Alaska's seismic network records thousands of quakes produced by glaciers, capturing valuable data that scientists could use to better understand their behavior, but instead their seismic signals are set aside as oddities.
Six massive glaciers in West Antarctica are moving faster than they did 40 years ago, causing more ice to discharge into the ocean and global sea level to rise, according to new research.
New research from Durham University reveals the world’s largest ice sheet could be more vulnerable to the effects of climate change than previously thought.
An international team of scientists has turned its attention to glacial melting in the tropical Andes, and their conclusions indicate that the situation is even more dire than originally suspected.
Alaska's Columbia Glacier, one of the fastest moving glaciers in the world, will cease to move by approximately 2020, according to a new study from the University of Colorado Boulder.
New research paints a pretty grim picture for the Himalayan glaciers, saying they will continue to shrink even if temperatures rebound to normal.
A report, issued this week by the National Research Council (NRC) has concluded that glacial melt in the Eastern and Central Himalayas has accelerated at an alarming rate, while glaciers in the Western Himalayas may actually be growing. Researchers say that this trend could have both positive and negative consequences for local inhabitants and ecosystems.
Glaciers are one of the largest reservoirs of freshwater on our planet, and their melting or growing is one of the best indicators of climate change.
