Terms and conditions of high-mountain lake ice-cover chemistry (Carpathians, Poland)
We discuss the results of an investigation of the chemical composition of the ice cover on the high-mountain lake Morskie Oko in the Tatra Mountains, Carpathians, Poland. In the years 2007– 13, theExpand
The microstructure of polar ice. Part II: State of the art
An important feature of natural ice, in addition to the obvious relevance of glaciers and ice sheets for climate-related issues, is its ability to creep on geological time scales and low deviatoricExpand
Self-Assembling Ice Membranes on Europa: Brinicle Properties, Field Examples, and Possible Energetic Systems in Icy Ocean Worlds.
It is demonstrated through calculations using FREZCHEM that sulfate likely fractionates out of accreting ice in Europa and Enceladus, and thus that an exogenous origin of sulfate observed on Europa's surface need not preclude additional endogenous sulfate in Europa's ocean. Expand
SMOS-derived thin sea ice thickness: algorithm baseline, product specifications and initial verification
Following the launch of ESA's Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission, it has been shown that brightness temperatures at a low microwave frequency of 1.4 GHz (L-band) are sensitive to sea iceExpand
Formation of spiky structures in high-altitude snow patches: penitente tilting
Penitentes are spikes formed on the surface of the snow, which are present typically at high altitude in the Andes and Himalayas. They are a consequence of a thermodynamic instability, as a result ofExpand
Subsurface exolife
Abstract We study the prospects for life on planets with subsurface oceans, and find that a wide range of planets can exist in diverse habitats with ice envelopes of moderate thickness. We quantifyExpand
Condensed Matter Researches in Cryospheric Science
The comprehensive understanding of the cryosphere’s global biogeochemical cycles represents a great challenge for the present climatic and environmental research on Earth [...]
Young sea ice electric properties estimation under non-optimal conditions
Sea ice monitoring is important for both climate change studies and potential trans-Arctic shipping. Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) has been demonstrated to be a powerful method to retrieve sea iceExpand
Nanodust shedding and its potential influence on dust related phenomena in the mesosphere
We explore the possibility that some meteoric smoke particles that collide with larger nanoparticles near the mesopause can escape from the larger particles by capturing surface electrons. If theExpand
The everlasting hunt for new ice phases
A high-pressure phase, ice XIX, has just been reported but its structure remains ambiguous, and the phase diagram of crystalline phases of ice is still under construction. Expand


The Multiscale Structure of Antarctica Part I : Inland Ice
The dynamics of polar ice sheets is strongly influenced by a complex coupling of intrinsic structures. Some of these structures are extremely small, like dislocation walls and micro-inclusions;Expand
Surfaces and atmospheres of the outer planets, their satellites and ring systems
This special issue of PSS is composed of selected articles based on research, presented during several different planetary meetings in 2007, including the European Geosciences Union (EGU) meeting (inExpand
Contrasts in sea ice deformation and production in the Arctic seasonal and perennial ice zones
[1] Four years (1997–2000) of RADARSAT Geophysical Processor System (RGPS) data are used to contrast the sea ice deformation and production regionally, and in the seasonal (SIZ) and perennial (PIZ)Expand
Thinning of the Arctic sea‐ice cover
Comparison of sea-ice draft data acquired on submarine cruises between 1993 and 1997 with similar data acquired between 1958 and 1976 indicates that the mean ice draft at the end of the melt seasonExpand
A numerical study of open water formation in sea ice
[1] A multicategory sea ice model that explicitly takes into account redistribution of undeformed ice into categories of ridged and rafted ice is introduced with the intention of investigating theExpand
Permafrost and climate in Europe: Monitoring and modelling thermal, geomorphological and geotechnical responses
We present a review of the changing state of European permafrost within a spatial zone that includes the continuous high latitude arctic permafrost of Svalbard and the discontinuous high altitudeExpand
New constraints on the gas age-ice age difference along the EPICA ice cores, 0-50 kyr
Abstract. Gas is trapped in polar ice sheets at ~50–120 m below the surface and is therefore younger than the surrounding ice. Firn densification models are used to evaluate this ice age-gas ageExpand
Changes in the Velocity Structure of the Greenland Ice Sheet
Using satellite radar interferometry observations of Greenland, widespread glacier acceleration below 66° north between 1996 and 2000, which rapidly expanded to 70° north in 2005, and as more glaciers accelerate farther north, the contribution of Greenland to sea-level rise will continue to increase.

Sea ice thickness distribution in the Greenland Sea and Eurasian Basin, May 1987
Upward sonar data from a 3400-km track in the Greenland Sea and the Eurasian Basin of the Arctic Ocean, obtained by a British submarine in May 1987, have been statistically analyzed. Mean iceExpand
The Aeronomy of Ice in the Mesosphere (AIM) mission: Overview and early science results
Abstract The Aeronomy of Ice in the Mesosphere (AIM) mission was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California at 1:26:03 PDT on April 25, 2007 becoming the first satellite mission dedicatedExpand
