Islands in the Indian Ocean are not the first to come to mind when glacier retreat is mentioned. However, glaciers in the Kerguelen Islands, located at sub-polar latitudes in the southern hemisphere, have been experiencing widespread and rapid retreat ...
That's why the GNET team includes GRACE scientists and earth modelers as well as GPS experts and glaciologists. The team used GPS to measure uplift in the crust all along Greenland's coast.

glaciologists are worried. Greenland's vast ice sheet is now shedding 350 billion tons annually. Its ice is melting and flowing to the sea, and its glaciers are slipping into the ocean and breaking up into icebergs.
Kolka was the only scientifically documented cataclysm of its type, the only glacier-debris flow ever to be researched on-site by glaciologists, and the only sudden collapse ever to be observed before and after by satellite. Though some researchers ...

Water-experts, including Prof Milap Chandra Sharma, a glaciologist at JNU, and Sarkar, the diplomatic rift among countries over trans-border water sharing is another major road block already affecting water availability.

On this subject, glaciologist from the University of Portland Andrew Fountain said that the reality of that stage might be followed by what will happen in that region.

glaciologist Mauri Pelto noticed the iceberg while analyzing space-based photos of Porcupine Glacier in northern British Columbia.
The event was just picked up by glaciologist and director of the North Cascades Glacier Climate Project, Mauri Pelto, who's been pouring through satellite imagery of glaciers that have been captured by NASA since the 1980s.
Prof Milap Chandra Sharma, a glaciologist at JNU, has also pointed out: "Besides having environmental issues those dams in Tibet can be disastrous for us.

Using Landsat images taken every decade, glaciologists at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil measured the snowline of the southern Peruvian range and found the ice caps that feed the glaciers shrinking.
... around 2m from Greenland and then a smaller contribution from thermal expansion and mountain glaciers. This is if we magically stop producing GHGs today.
... we are literally studying everything from the Earth's core to the edge of the atmosphere covering solid earth, ice, ocean, biology, engineering, and perhaps most importantly interactions among all these systems," said Scripps glaciologist Matthew ...

Martin Sharp, professor in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric sciences at the University of Alberta, talks to Postmedia about the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere hitting a major milestone.
The film will retrace his life's journey, from his first steps as a young glaciologist to the crowning moment of his glittering career - winning the Blue Planet Prize, the Nobel of environmental sciences.
Although this article claims that "DOE charts show why climate doom and gloom isn't needed", a study of ice sheet response to our strong and rapid forcing suggests otherwise.
The two Geological Survey of Canada glaciologists I tagged along with were measuring vertical surface loss; that is, the extent to which the glacier's surface has dropped since the previous summer.
Shakil Romshoo, glaciologist and head of the Department of Earth sciences at the University of Kashmir in Srinagar, says, "There has been a 20% loss of glaciers in the last 60 years across the Indian Himalayan area.
A team from the Austrian Institute for Interdisciplinary Mountain Research has been conducting annual measurements as part of a study begun in 2006 to asses the rate at which the glacier is shrinking in depth, which glaciologist and team leader Martin ...
To study those impacts, the glaciologists are teaming up with Ecologists, oceanographers, biologists and botanists to assess how socio-economically important species like salmon are likely to fare in the warmer Alaska of the future.
... or it could take years - though any ice shelf collapse would likely take decades, experts say. But monitoring the progression of this rift will help glaciologists better gauge the conditions on other ice shelves around the continent, which ...
glaciologist Dr Alexander Aleinikov compared the coastline here between 2009 and this year. 'The shores of the Vize Island were collapsing earlier too,' he said.
Researcher William Colgan, a glaciologist from York University in Toronto and lead author of the paper, said the camp and its abandoned waste were now "safety nestled" under about 30 metres of ice.
In Cameron Stracher's 2011 novel The Water wars Vera and her brother Will struggle in a country collapsed from the environmental cataclysm.
This would require a much more dynamic ice sheet than most glaciologists expected, vulnerable to warmth that would drive serious melting and raise sea levels significantly.
"It caught the glaciologists totally off guard." Steger explained that what we consider normal weather patterns and seasons depend on the sun reflecting off these massive ice caps.
Leh,September 24, (Scoop News)-The Sustainable Mountain Development Summit (SMDS) which began on September 20 at Sindhu Sanskriti Kendra, Leh came to a close on September 22, 2016.
Willis, who's also a glaciologist with the University of Colorado Boulder's Department of Geological sciences, has spent decades studying the Earth's ice sheets, including Greenland's.
What happens to the water that finds its way from the melting ice surface to the bottom of the ice sheet is a crucial question for glaciologists like me. Knowing this will help us ascertain how quickly Greenland's ice sheet could contribute to global ...

They can unleash their fury during earthquake, accidents or by intentional destruction can easily be used against India during war," Prof Milap Chandra Sharma, a glaciologist at JNU, told IANS here at an international seminar "Damming crisis in Tibet ...
The fact that the Arctic had a fairly cool summer and still hit a near record-low in September "really suggests that in the next few years, with more typical warmer conditions, we will see some very dramatic further losses," said Ted Scambos, a ...

Another Swiss glacier, the Great Aletsch, which was around 2,950 feet thick at one point, has retreated about 1.9 miles since 1870, and that pace is quickening, according to glaciologists. The Aletsch may lose 90 percent of its ice volume by 2100 ...
