Plumbing Under the Greenland Ice Sheet
August 27, 2013 | National Science Foundation
"Scientists' understanding of how Greenland Ice Sheet melt water travels in passages along the bedrock below fails to account for some key processes. This, in turn may be affecting their assessment of how ice sheets respond to climate change." Quoted from the National Science Foundation press release.
Low Arctic Clouds and Ice Sheet Melting
April 8, 2013 | National Science Foundation
"Clouds over the central Greenland Ice Sheet last July were "just right" for driving surface temperatures there above the melting point, according to a new study by scientists funded by the National Science Foundation and at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration." Quoted from the NSF press release.
How Surface Water Lubricates the Bottom of the Greenland Ice Sheet
August 14, 2013 | National Science Foundation
"Supraglacial lakes -- bodies of water that collect on the surface of the Greenland ice sheet -- lubricate the bottom of the ice when they drain, causing it to flow faster." Quoted from the National Science Foundation press release.
