It has been shrinking around 180 metres every year for the past 27 years, which even the most liberal of glaciologists in New Zealand concede is more than alarming.

"I don't think the biblical deluge is just a fairy tale," said Terence J. Hughes, a retired University of Maine glaciologist living in South Dakota. "I think some kind of major flood happened all over the world, and it left an indelible imprint on the ...
For the past decade, I've been documenting the dramatic disappearance of glaciers in large-scale series of paintings and photographs developed in close collaboration with glaciologists. It's a symbiotic relationship: I want my work to accurately ...
Earlier on Saturday, glaciologist and Dean of Surveying at Otago Prof Christina Hulbe gave a karakia to another group of graduates in a variety of science disciplines.
That experience kicked off a research career that has taken Moon to Greenland, Alaska, Norway, and to conferences around the world.
Twila Moon, a glaciologist and researcher at the University of Colorado's National Snow and Ice Data Center, says the process can be slowed but not stopped.
Professor AR Ramanathan, a glaciologist and hydrologist from Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University, says many of the hydro projects contributing to those projected carbon cuts should only operate half the year.
global warming: Melting Glaciers and Ice Caps DOCUMENTARY (Photo : Jenna/ You Tube) glaciologist at Cambridge University, Hamish Pritchard has conducted a study of Asia's glaciers and how they might be impacted by global warming.
"At this point, (we're) expecting it would not be surprising to see a metre of sea level rise within the next 85 years, compared to 2000," Twila Moon, a glaciologist and researcher at the University of Colorado's National Snow and Ice Data Center, told ...
"The big challenge of the future is to figure out these timescales," says Eric Rignot, a glaciologist and professor at the University of California, Irvine.
glaciologists consider that amount of mass a convenient cut-off point to distinguish between a glacier (a perennial wedge of ice and snow that moves) and stagnant ice or a perennial snowfield (a wedge of ice and snow that doesn't)..." Photo credit ...

Melting glaciers could displace millions as sea levels rise: scientist. Melting ice and rising sea levels will displace millions of people in our children's lifetime: an ever-accelerating trend that can be slowed but not stopped, an American ...
Knut Christianson, a 33-year-old glaciologist at the University of Washington, has been there twice. A few years ago, Christianson and a team of seven scientists traveled more than 1,000 miles from McMurdo Station, the main research base in Antarctica, ...
"This particular glacier is a very big tourist attraction," says Johannes Oerlemans, a glaciologist from the Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research Utrecht in the Netherlands who was one of the researchers the community approached for help.
"The California coast is pretty unprotected," Helen Fricker, a glaciologist at the Scripps institution of oceanography who co-authored the study, told KPCC.
The new study confirms the connection between this underground network and the waterfall, and traces the path between the two, glaciologist Erin Pettit of the University of Alaska in Fairbanks told Live science. [In Photos: Antarctica's Stunning Ice] ...
It is a peaceful experience to fish on the General Carrera Lake, one of several prominent glacier lakes in Patagonia, Chile. The breeze on the lake helps you relax as you look out on the distant glaciers.
"The California coast is pretty unprotected," Helen Fricker, a glaciologist at the Scripps institution of oceanography who co-authored the study, told KPCC.

What surprised the team the most, was that liquid water can exist inside and beneath a frozen glacier at all, let alone for millions of years.
He is a well known Antarctic explorer, guide, glaciologist and adventurer. We met him in 2006 on the way to Peter I. We are extremely pleased to have him join us.
UAF glaciologist Erin Pettit said her team made another significant discovery that liquid water can persist inside an extremely cold glacier, against previous belief among scientists that this was nearly impossible.
Normally, when you have a scientist going to the mountains, he might be a glaciologist and so he goes in and collects glacial data.
... warned about numerous times. The predicted breakaway can happen summer and is said to be a significant risk to the stability of the whole ice shelf.
It is reasonable to link the event and the shrinking ice shelves in Antarctica to global warming, said Richard Alley, a glaciologist at Penn State University who is not connected with project. An overwhelming majority of scientists say human activity ...
In the meltdown, the archive lost some of its oldest and most precious ice cores from Northern Canada that glaciologists have been collecting since the 1970s.
The crack is still being monitored, with glaciologists unsure exactly when the ice will give in and splinter off. "To be modelling these cracks is extremely challenging.
As a "rookie" undergrad glaciologist in my early twenties (around the year 2000), this inconsistency caught my attention during my visit to a glacier in Monte Tronador.
To see if artificial snow works just as well, glaciologist Felix Keller of the Academia Engiadina in Switzerland and his team are in the midst of a new experiment.

glaciologists and meteorologists are working furiously to understand two particularly complex issues that may cause huge upheavals: the stability of the Greenland ice sheet and its potential contribution to rising sea levels; and extreme weather ...
With enough information, experts could provide early warning for future large-scale glacier avalanches, potentially saving lives, according to French glaciologist Etienne Berthier, who spoke on April 25th at the European Geosciences Union General ...
Dramatic landscape changes are a fact of life in this part of the world, as Garry Clarke can attest. Before global warming really kicked in, he was there in the 1960s when the Steele Glacier surged so quickly that glaciologists nicknamed it the ...
