The mid-latitudes of Mars are littered with numerous debris-covered glaciers, deposited some several hundred million years ago and composed of pure water ice under a surface debris layer. As a record of Martian climate history and a potential resource for future manned missions to Mars, they are of high interest to UTIG graduate students […]
UTIG Ph.D. candidate Chad Greene recently published a new study on how wind affects Antarctica’s Totten Ice Shelf. We talk to him about his research and his time at UTIG. Your latest research looks at how wind affects the Totten Ice Shelf – what led you to research that topic? Totten Ice Shelf stands between […]
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 […]
What are the interiors like of Uranus and Neptune? Why are their magnetic fields different than other planets? Why are their winds and heat budgets so different from those observed on the other giant planets, Jupiter and Saturn? “In addition to the planets themselves, their rings, satellites, and magnetospheres are also unique; a new mission […]
