A small bay in Antarctica has been named after biological oceanographer Hugh Ducklow from Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.
A new study coauthored by Columbia’s Pierre Dutrieux shows, for the first time, evidence of a link between human-caused global warming and melting of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet.
A new study reveals how local factors influence the Ross Ice Shelf’s stability, refining predictions of how it will change and influence sea rise in the future.
New research co-authored by Columbia University scientists shows that the Larsen C ice shelf—the fourth largest ice shelf in Antarctica—experienced an unusual spike in late summer and early autumn surface melting in the years 2015 to 2017.
A team of autonomous ocean robots deployed in January 2018 has carried out the first year-long observations under an Antarctic ice shelf. Scientists will use the data to understand how seawater interacts with the ice shelves and improve models of ice sheet behavior.
