Antarctica’s ice shelves have helped insulate it from dangerous levels of ice loss. But this is changing.
Melting lakes on ice shelves can widen cracks within them - new research shows how these lakes change across the world’s largest sheet.
Glaciers in North America, Europe and the Andes, in particular, have significantly less ice than people realized.
Constructed ice domes release water during dry periods when rain is blocked by high mountain ranges, stifling essential crop cultivation for rural communities.
