Uncovering the Ross Ocean and Ice Shelf Environment and Tectonic Setting Through Aerogeophysical Surveys and Modeling (ROSETTA-Ice)
NERC and NSF's partnership, called the International Thwaites Glacier Collaboration (ITGC), covers research across Thwaites Glacier and its adjacent ocean region
Previously thought to protect ice shelves, new research hints that meltwater rivers could instead cause their collapse.
“Estuaries” from the ocean onto the ice can cause fractures and contribute to sea-level rise.
A lake twice the volume of San Diego Bay disappeared within three days, a finding that could have implications for understanding climate change in Antarctica.
