Vélez, J.A., G.P. Tsoflias, R.A. Black, C.J. Van der Veen, and S. Anandakrishnan, "Distribution of preferred ice crystal orientation determined from seismic anisotropy: Evidence from Jakobshavn Isbræ and the North Greenland Eemian Ice Drilling facility, Greenland," Geophysics, vol. 81, no. 1, p...
The massive chunk of ice covering Greenland accounts for around 10 percent of the frozen freshwater on Earth. If all that were to melt, it could raise the global sea level more than 20 feet (6 meters). To understand the future of all that ice, scientists are peering into its past. Using the latest...
— CReSIS collaborator Ian Joughin was featured in the University of Vermont's newspaper yesterday. His work as lead scientist garnered attention from the New York Times and the BBC. Joughin is senior principal engineer at the University of Washington’s Applied Physics Laboratory and a glaciologist...
Scientists using ice-penetrating radar data collected by NASA’s Operation IceBridge and earlier airborne campaigns have built the first-ever comprehensive map of layers deep inside the Greenland Ice Sheet. Engineers and researchers at the University of Kansas were central to the success of this...
Recently, the Center for the Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets, or CReSIS, a National Science Foundation center based at the University of Kansas, published an article in the Journal of Glaciology about its recent findings in the topography of two glaciers in Antarctica and Greenland. CReSIS,...
Kansas University researchers say they have discovered new details below two glaciers that will help provide more accurate predictions about rising sea levels caused by climate change. The findings by the KU-based Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) were published in the lead article...
NSF announces $31 million in awards to develop tools, cyberinfrastructure and best practices for data science The ability to collect and analyze massive amounts of data is rapidly transforming science, industry and everyday life, but what we have seen so far is likely just the tip of the iceberg...
Ice-penetrating radar has uncovered a previously unknown ice-covered trench, and other detailed terrain, in the bedrock hidden beneath two massive, bluish glaciers in Greenland and Antarctica. The gaping features were revealed in the first, highly detailed 3D maps of the frozen bedrock — the land...
Researchers at the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets, or CReSIS, at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas, recently built detailed maps of the terrain beneath Greenland’s Jakobshavn Glacier and Byrd Glacier in Antarctica. Jakobshavn Glacier is of interest because it is the fastest-...
Kansas University researchers say they have discovered new details below two glaciers that will help provide more accurate predictions about rising sea levels caused by climate change. The findings by the KU-based Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) were published in the lead article...
Researchers working to measure and predict sea level rise based on changes to ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica will soon have a new tool to use in their assessments. Jilu Li, assistant research professor with the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) at the University of Kansas,...
Carl Leuschen External Non-U.S. government site didn’t stray far from his academic roots at the University of Kansas External Non-U.S. government site, but for a five-year stint at Johns Hopkins University’s Applied Physics Laboratory External Non-U.S. government site. The electrical engineer was...
The Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets, or CReSIS, has been studying the mechanics of ice on the Antarctic continent, as well as Greenland, since the 1990s and making its data publicly available for other scientists to study. Recently teams of scientists used the center's public data to...
Greenland's icy reaches are far more vulnerable to warm ocean waters from climate change than had been thought, according to new research by UC Irvine and NASA glaciologists. The work, published today in Nature Geoscience, shows previously uncharted deep valleys stretching for dozens of miles under...
Discovery is latest outcome of NSF-funded International Polar Year Research: National Science Foundation- (NSF) funded researchers at the University of Washington have concluded that Antarctica's fast-moving Thwaites Glacier will likely disappear in a matter of centuries, potentially raising sea...
National Science Foundation- (NSF) funded researchers at the University of Washington have concluded that Antarctica's fast-moving Thwaites Glacier will likely disappear in a matter of centuries, potentially raising sea level by more than a half-a-meter (two feet). A high-resolution map of the...
Scientists studying the behavior of the world's ice sheets--and the future implications of ice sheet behavior for global sea-level rise--may soon have a new airborne tool that will allow radar measurements that previously would have been prohibitively expensive or difficult to carry out with manned...
The University of Kansas' impact on the world continues to grow. Anarctic trench in Antarctica now bears the name of KU professor and alumnus Prasad Gogineni.
You'll probably never visit it, but a trench under nearly two miles of ice in Antarctica has been named after a Kansas University professor and head of a center devoted to studying the consequences of climate change.
