Press Release

* May 08, 2019 / Tsunami signals to measure glacier calving in Greenland / Evgeny Podolskiy, Shin Sugiyama / In recent years, glaciers near the North and South poles, as well as in mountainous areas, have been shrinking due to the effect of global warming, becoming a significant contributor to the recent sea level rise. Calving glaciers, which discharge icebergs into an ocean or lake, have retreated more rapidly than those on land .....
* April 11, 2019 / Driving a wedge into historic gaps of climate science / Yoshinori Iizuka / Hokkaido University researchers and colleagues have found that the Beaufort Sea, on the margin of the Arctic Ocean, was not completely frozen over during the coldest summers of the late Ice Age, some 12,800 years ago. Their methodology, using ice wedges from the Alaskan permafrost, could help scientists further reconstruct historic sea-ice conditions .....
* April 02, 2019 / Beware a glacier's tongue / Shin Sugiyama / By using underwater sonar, researchers have found that a glacier jutting into a freshwater lake in southern Chile looks different underwater compared to ocean-bound glaciers in Greenland. Their findings, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, clarify how huge chunks of ice break off freshwater glaciers, and have implications for the safety .....
* Nov 26, 2018 / New insight into ocean-atmosphere interaction and subsequent cloud formation / Yuzo Miyazaki / Aerosols, which are suspended fine solid particles or liquid droplets, play significant roles in triggering climate change by scattering or absorbing sunlight, while affecting the cloud formation and precipitation process by serving as nuclei to form clouds. Organic compounds account for up to 90 percent of the constituents of aerosols, .....
