Climate on Earth is changing rapidly. In order to take the right measures it is important to know with which magnitude and rate the warming of the climate continues in the future. However, climate models currently predict different scenarios. The differing in response of shallow cumulus clouds to a warming climate explains the largest part of...

An accurate prediction of global sea-level rise requires that the cause of recent and intensifying glacier acceleration along the Antarctic ice sheet (AIS) coastal margins is understood. Ice shelf thinning and abrupt ice shelf collapse have been linked to surface melt that is prevalent across coastal Antarctica. Primarily, surface melt is...

As of yet, there is no consensus on the role of the cloud radiative effect (CRE) on the Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS). This study focuses on the seasonal and temporal variability of the CRE, to better understand the response of the firn. To do so, we combine satellite observations, climate-model output, and a snow model. We separate short-term and...

In the second half of the 20th and beginning of the 21st century the amount of natural disasters has increased rapidly. Due to this rise in occurrences, more people are affected. An important indicator for people affected is the amount of damage to buildings. To gather this information aid workers now have to go into the field to gather data on...

Climate change has been a heated topic in recent years, and the mass loss of ice sheets is one aspect of it. The Antarctic Ice Sheet has experienced certain mass loss in the form of ice-shelf collapse and (sub-)surface melting, but thorough study remains limited due to the remote location of the continent. Therefore, remote sensing is expected...

Recent studies have shown that processes like the thinning of the ice shelves, the acceleration of the outlet glaciers and the collapses of the ice shelves are connected to surface melting. Several ice shelves at the Antarctic Peninsula, a region that has experienced an atmospheric warming much larger than the global average, have retreated and...

The region of Coquimbo, Chile, is located adjacent to the dry Andes. Water is scarce, and with very little precipitation during spring and summer, water supply in these seasons depends mostly on melt water from snow in the Andes mountains.
A project funded by the local government was conducted by CEAZA, a research institute based in the...

The Tibetan Plateau is a vast elevated plateau in Central and East Asia. It contains thousands of glaciers and other geographical features. Through this area rivers like the Brahmaputra is flowing and making a basin providing about millions of people a home.
The last years global warming has been a focus of public and scientific debate. Not...
