The Journal of Glaciology is published six times a year and is available online to IGS members. The Society is grateful to our founder's widow, Loris Seligman, for a generous bequest that made it possible to publish back issues of the Society's journals online for the benefit of glaciologists worldwide.

Geoscientists reveal icy crystal structures of hailstones

The Tübingen region has recently seen hailstorms that brought back memories of the devastating storm of 2013. At that time, billions of dollars in damage were caused, and the damage from the most recent storms is still being ...

Greenland ice loss may have begun as early as the mid-'80s

The amount of snow falling on Greenland's glaciers may have been less than the water lost through icebergs calving and melting since at least the mid-1980s, a study of almost 40 years of satellite images has revealed.

Glaciers in Canada found to be thicker than previously suggested

Among snowy, ice-capped peaks in the northernmost section of western Canada's Columbia River Basin, a research team, led by University of British Columbia Ph.D. student Ben Pelto, collected measurements of glacier thickness. ...

Gloomy forecast for the Aletsch Glacier

The largest glacier in the Alps is visibly suffering the effects of global warming. ETH researchers have now calculated how much of the Aletsch Glacier will still be visible by the end of the century. In the worst-case scenario, ...

Melting small glaciers could add 10 inches to sea levels

A new review of glacier research data paints a picture of a future planet with a lot less ice and a lot more water. Glaciers worldwide are projected to lose anywhere from 18% to 36% of their mass by 2100, resulting in almost ...

Quirky glacial behavior explained

In August 2012, in the frigid wilderness of West Greenland, the Jakobshavn Glacier was flowing and breaking off into the sea at record speeds, three times faster than in previous years. An underwater calving event had caused ...
