Recent research from UTIG says erosion caused by glaciation during ice ages can, in the right circumstances, wear down mountains faster than plate tectonics can build them.
If global climate is altered by melting glaciers in Greenland, new research from UTIG says tropical rainfall could be impacted for generations to come.
UTIG is helping scientists better understand how some of the world’s biggest glaciers and ice sheets melt into the ocean and contribute to sea level rise.
Collaborating with NASA, ice-penetrating radar developed at the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics will be included on the mission to Europa.
