FactoidHeadline Some tidewater glaciers melting 100 times faster than predicted  +
FactoidText "Working in ice-clogged seawater in small "Working in ice-clogged seawater in small chartered boats, a University of Oregon-led research team successfully used sonar to scan Alaska’s LeConte Glacier in the first field tests of a long-used theory on melting that occurs under glaciers... Reporting in the July 26 issue of the journal Science, the team concluded that tidewater glaciers — those that empty from land valleys into ocean water — are potentially melting at two orders of magnitude, or some 100 times, faster than predicted." - Excerpt from [https://around.uoregon.edu/content/new-data-uo-led-study-may-change-glacial-melt-predictions University of Oregon]ial-melt-predictions University of Oregon]  +
