Tracking the transience of lake ice in a changing climate

Changes in seasonal lake ice are threatening the lives of those who depend on it. Find out how scientists are tracking them. Nyla HusainI’m a PhD student at the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography. I use a small-scale computer model to study how physical features like surface waves at the air-sea interface […]

Catastrophic floods or drought? What caused the water level drop of glacial Lake Agassiz?

Formed from the meltwater of a colossal ice sheet that once blanketed North America, glacial Lake Agassiz experienced a sudden drop in water level approximately 12,900 years ago. The timing of this event aligns with a climatic return to cold conditions for 1,000 years, known as the Younger Dryas. A well-established hypothesis suggests that catastrophic […]
