Extensive field work in Patagonia confirms the theory that climate change and glaciers can affect the forces inside the Earth that build mountains.

A recent study examines how shifts in water temperature and coastline glaciers create challenges and opportunities for seabirds in Norway’s Hornsund fjord.
Current measurements and instruments do not take into account the effect that microplastics have on snow and ice, potentially overestimating the role of black carbon.
As melting glaciers alter ecosystems in and around Antarctica, scientists study how sea squirts react.
Ice is melting more rapidly than previously thought, according to two new studies, which examine some of the specific causes.
As climate change continues to alter the Earth’s complex environmental systems, unfamiliar risks will emerge. A recent study suggests a few tools to reduce uncertainty in disaster preparation.
