Tracking the Cracks in Greenland’s Ice Sheet

New York Times: Research on crevasses in the Greenland ice sheet may help scientists build better computer models to predict the impact of ice bodies on rising sea levels. In a new study, researchers have observed an expansion of the crevasse fields in one portion of the Greenland ice sheet, a change that they suggest may influence how the ice sheets move toward the ocean and raise sea levels. The researchers, from the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences, a joint institute of the National......
