Melting water's effect on glaciers to play only 'minor' role in future sea-level rise Aug 13, 1:36 pm
Washington, August 13 (ANI): A new study has suggested that melt-water that trickles down through the ice is likely to have a minor role in sea-level rise compared with other effects like iceberg production and surface melt.
Glaciers protect mountain peaks from erosion Aug 4, 11:46 am
London, Aug 4 (ANI): A new study of Europe's high Alps has shown that that glaciers shield summits from erosion, acting as a protective lid.
