A new paper published in The Cryosphere from UTIG and international researchers is helping identify a new location for ice core drilling in East Antarctica, all part of ICECAP/IDEA (International Collaborative Exploration of the Cryosphere through Airborne Profiling/Ice Divides of East Antarctica), an international collaboration with Australian, French, British, and Chinese colleagues to understand the region. Ice sheet […]
Scientists have created the first map that shows how the Greenland Ice Sheet has moved over time, revealing that ice in the interior is moving more slowly toward the edges than it has, on average, during the past 9,000 years. The findings, which researchers said don’t change the fact that the ice sheet is […]
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.
