This article is a Why Files short piece that examines the movement of Antarctic ice sheets into the ocean. Both East and West Antarctic ice sheets are rapidly moving into the Southern Ocean, which could raise sea level by 70 meters causing massive problems for populated coastal areas around the world. This article looks at the evidence for these events, and what it could mean for coastal regions. Full description.

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) operates a long-term "benchmark" glacier program to intensively monitor climate, glacier motion, glacier mass balance, glacier geometry, and stream runoff at a few select sites. The data collected are used to understand glacier-related hydrologic processes and improve the quantitative prediction of water resources, glacier-related hazards, and the consequences ...
