Processes in both the atmosphere and ocean are causing increased melt on the ice sheet surface, as well acceleration, thinning and retreat of fast-moving outlet glaciers that terminate in the sea. We particularly need a better understanding of the apparently diverse responses of…

AGU Grand Challenges: Tectonic Processes & Lithospheric Effects

How can we understand the evolution of Earth over time periods from seconds to thousands of millions of years, and from the scale of atoms to mountain belts? Low-temperature thermochronometry methods are transforming our ability to date Earth surface evolution and quantify the thermal evolution of rocks through time. There are a range of applications…
