Latest Thwaites Glacier Stories
Researchers from the Institute for Geophysics at The University of Texas at Austin (UTIG) have discovered that Thwaites Glacier is being eroded by the ocean, as well as being melted from geothermal heat.
The uncertainty of future sea level rise is getting a little clearer thanks to research being conducted by a team of scientists.
NASA's Operation IceBridge got the 2012 Antarctic campaign off to a productive start with a land ice survey of Thwaites Glacier and a sea ice flight over parts of the Bellingshausen Sea.
The retreat of Antarctica’s fast-flowing Thwaites Glacier is expected to speed up within 20 years, once the glacier detaches from an underwater ridge that is currently holding it back.
