(It is even applied to make snow, to help slow the retreating glaciers in Europe's Alps.) Notice a trend: Freshwater may be becoming scarce and growing scarcer, but the technology to capture and ...
The finale in the Sarnia Justice Film Festival's season is Chasing Ice, a documentary about climate change and the planet's retreating glaciers. The film follows photographer James Balog through his work in the Arctic, using time-lapse cameras over ...

Roxbury was an early site for dynamite manufacture because of the local deposits of diatomaceous Earth left by the retreating glaciers, according to the Roxbury Historic Trust. Over the years, Hercules Powder Company, in Kenvil, contributed to ...

The slope that failed is largely made up of loose, sandy soil deposited by retreating glaciers. But that porous material is underlain by a compacted layer of silt and clay, which blocks the flow of water and allows it to accumulate deep within the ...
The consequences of these shrinking glaciers are dire for Peru and they worry Irma. "The water from those glaciers is used for drinking and for sustaining agriculture which is vitally important for the Peruvian economy," she said.

The researchers documented how climate change affects everything from retreating glaciers in East Africa, the Alps, the Rockies and the Andes to the bleaching of corals in the Caribbean Sea and Australia's Great Barrier Reef.
Another popular theory suggested by scientists William Ryan and Walter Pitman in 1997 claimed that the flood was caused by retreating glaciers opening a gap near the Bosporus strait causing water to surge through into the Black Sea at a rate 200 times ...
We're already seeing more frequent extreme weather, food and water shortages, shrinking glaciers and species migrations, the report says.
... comprehensive report lays out very clearly the evidence that climate change is already having many impacts across the world, including effects on human deaths from extremely hot or cold weather, crop yields, the availability of water from shrinking ...
He cited shrinking glaciers, species migration, dwindling crop yields, rise in vector-borne diseases, and the increase in extreme events as clear evidence of the need for the international community to make better adaptation and mitigation choices ...

... mortality, permafrost degradation in Siberia, Central Asia and Tibetan Plateau, shrinking mountain glaciers across most of Asia, changed water availability in many Chinese rivers and increased flow in four rivers due to shrinking glaciers in the ...
It doesn't really matter what is being observed, whether it is dying coral reefs in equatorial or temperate latitudes, retreating glaciers in high mountain ranges or in ice caps, thawing permafrost areas in the sub-Arctic regions, shrinking water ...

Some areas of the globe are especially vulnerable to rising sea levels. As land recedes under advancing waters, governments are faced with the costs of building defensive seawalls and relocating coastal populations - and in some extreme cases, finding ...
Changes in global temperatures are already resulting in retreating glaciers, shifts in animal and human habitats, and the spread of life-threatening diseases.
One of the concerns, had the herds been allowed to remain longer, was the risk, due to retreating glaciers, that they may extend their range into new areas.
And yet, despite rising sea levels, shrinking glaciers, retreating Arctic ice, ocean acidification, changing wildlife patterns, and extreme weather events worldwide, polls continue to show that a large portion of the public believe there is significant ...
The geology of the Cascades was shaped over two million years by advancing and retreating glaciers. Glaciers deposited sediments in the river valleys, and when the ice melted, the rivers carved out new beds in the sediments, which are a loose mixture ...

In one well-known example, retreating glaciers in Wellenberg, Switzerland, squeezed the water from subsurface shale. When they retreated, the shale sprung back to its original shape faster than water could seep back in, creating a low-pressure pocket.
glacial retreat has affected hydrology, hydro-power, biodiversity, avalanche patterns, and glacial lake formation, with risks of floods and drought.
Previously understanding this large-scale glacial retreat has been a puzzle. Our results help resolve this problem." Among the implications of the study are that ocean temperatures in this area may be more sensitive to changes in greenhouse gas levels ...

Once thought immune to global warming's effects, melting in northeast Greenland could significantly boost Greenland's contribution sea level rise.
Previously, understanding this large-scale glacial retreat has been a puzzle. Our results help resolve this problem." Concluding, the researchers say that sensitivity of the western tropical Pacific Ocean to ocean temperatures must be factored into ...

Yet along the way, they've discovered that the finest vineyards for ripening their signature malbec lie in the gravelly soils left behind by retreating glaciers. You can taste these differences. New World wines taste fruity, often jammy and almost ...

We see it in New England's flood ravaged river valleys, California's scorched farmland, Alaska's retreating glaciers, Wyoming's burnt forests, and super-storm ravaged coastlines. Before we even get to the accumulated - and accumulating - scientific ...
"We see it in California's scorched farmlands, in Alaska's retreating glaciers, in Wyoming's burnt forests and [America's] superstorm-ravaged coastlines," he said.
... part, to green-house gases generated by human activity, and as supporting evidence they point to measurable and verifiable observations such as the rise in ocean temperatures, shrinking polar ice caps, shrinking glaciers and extreme weather events ...
As retreating glaciers opened new routes into the continent, humans travelled first into the Alaskan interior and the Yukon, and ultimately south out of the Arctic region and toward the temperate regions of The Americas.
Fossil fuel exports to Asia, and particularly China, are fueling greenhouse gas emissions that are warming the planet and changing its climate.
Meanwhile, news sources on the Internet and elsewhere decry melting ice and snow from Peru's Quelccaya ice cap, Antarctica's Pine Island Glacier (which contributes 25 percent of Antarctica's total ice loss), Greenland's shrinking glaciers and other ...
While this spelled the end of the woolly mammoths and other large grazing animals, it probably also provided the impetus for human migration.

... for this isolated population, and suggested it existed there for several thousand years before members of the population migrated southward into the rest of North and, ultimately, South America as retreating glaciers provided routes for southern ...
We hiked in our polo shirts on these rocky trails, marked by past avalanches, to look at the retreating glaciers. The glaciers themselves were not as impressive as the valleys carved out by ice.
Dr. Thompson told the New York Times that he believes temperature is the cause of the shrinking glaciers. Last year he documented that the Qori Kalis glacier has lost 1,600 years of growth in the past 25 years.
Many archeologists now say early humans first migrated to the New World about 15,000 years ago after retreating glaciers provided a path into North America through coastal and interior routes, though the subject is still a matter of debate.
