In Publications see a new study led by colleague Larry Smith in which the fate of the meltwater on the Greenland ice sheet is investigated. This study featured on the cover of the December 2017 issue of PNAS and a cool picture story in the New York Times!

In Publications see an important study led by colleague Luke Trusel from WHOI in which he models the future of Antarctic ice shelves in relation to warming scenarios. This study featured on the cover of the December 2015 issue of Nature Geoscience!

Also in Publications see another exciting study led by colleague Stephen Cornford from BAS in which he models Antarctic ice sheet retreat.

Watch the largest iceberg calving event caught on tape thus far: Jacobshavn Isbrae, west Greenland. Footage is part of a recently released documentary film on the world's disappearing ice.
