Newswise: Scientists Find Far Higher than Expected Rate of Underwater Glacial Melting

Scientists Find Far Higher than Expected Rate of Underwater Glacial Melting

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Tidewater glaciers, the massive rivers of ice that end in the ocean, may be melting underwater much faster than previously thought, according to a Rutgers co-authored study that used robotic kayaks. The findings, which challenge current frameworks for analyzing ocean-glacier interactions, have implications for the rest of the world’s tidewater glaciers, whose rapid retreat is contributing to sea-level rise.

Newswise: ‘Curious and curiouser!’ Meteorite chunk contains unexpected evidence of presolar grains

‘Curious and curiouser!’ Meteorite chunk contains unexpected evidence of presolar grains

Washington University in St. Louis

An unusual chunk in a meteorite may contain a surprising bit of space history, based on new research from Washington University in St. Louis. Presolar grains — tiny bits of solid interstellar material formed before the sun was born — are sometimes found in primitive meteorites. But a new analysis reveals evidence of presolar grains in part of a meteorite where they are not expected to be found.
