1. Glaciology - Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia
glaciology is the study of glaciers, or more generally ice and natural phenomena that involve ice. The word glacier is derived from the Latin glaciees,
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search Lateral moraine on a glacier joining the Gorner Glacier, Zermatt, Switzerland. The moraine is the high bank of debris in the top left hand quarter of the picture. For more explanation, click on the picture. Glaciology (from Middle French dialect (Franco-Proven§al): glace , "ice"; or Latin: glacies , "frost, ice"; and Greek: λόγος, logos , "speech" lit. "to talk about ice") is the study of glaciers , or more generally ice and natural phenomena that involve ice. Glaciology is an interdisciplinary earth science that integrates geophysics geology physical geography geomorphology ... biology , and ecology . The impact of glaciers on humans adds the fields of human geography and anthropology . The presence of ice on Mars and Europa brings in an extraterrestrial component to the field.
edit Overview
Areas of study within glaciology include glacial history and the reconstruction of past glaciation. A glaciologist is a person who studies glaciers. Glaciology is one of the key areas of polar research.
edit Types
There are two general categories of glaciation which glaciologists distinguish: alpine glaciation , accumulations or "rivers of ice" confined to valleys; and

Until July 1999 the Centre was called WDC-C for Glaciology. The Centre supports the work of SPRI's Glaciology and Climate Change Research Group. The World Data Center for Glaciology, Boulder (WDCGB) is at the National Snow and Ice Data Center [Colorado, USA]. The WDC for Glaciology and Geocryology, Lanzhou, is in China. All three centres form part of the ICSU World Data Center System. The abstracts created by the Bibliographer and others are included in the SPRILIB database (which you can search when you visit the Institute Library) and published in Polar and Glaciological Abstracts from Cambridge University Press . The glaciological literature has been catalogued by SPRI since 1920. A large proportion of recently catalogued items are included in the web-based The Directory of European Glaciology , maintained by the Centre, includes 13 countries.

Ice stream and mountains, Antarctica
Photo by Paul Mayewski We investigate the mass balance and dynamic of present-day glaciers, with emphasis on the large ice sheets covering Antarctica and Greenland, and we model advance and retreat of former ice sheets during glaciation cycles of the Quaternary Ice Age. Institute glaciologists seek answers to glaciological questions that impact on the larger global environment. Examples are:
  • How do glaciers, especially the large ice sheets, contribute to changes in global sea level? Can rapid changes in the size and shape of ice sheets trigger rapid changes in climate? Are rapid changes in glaciers, especially in ice sheets, inherent in their dynamics or must be triggered by external changes? What can glacier landforms tell us about the climate changes that initiated and terminated the last glaciation, and that will initiate the next one?

    Kilimanjaro Geology and Glaciology
    Kilimanjaro lies on a tectonic line intersection 80km. east of the tectonically active Rift Valley. The activity which created this stratovolcano dates back less than a million years and the central ash pit on Kibo, the highest volcanic centre, may be only several hundred years old. Steam and sulphur fumaroles here are indicative of residual activity.
    Volcanology of Kilimanjaro
    Shira and Mawenzi were two other areas of volcanic activity. Both became inactive before Kibo. The Shira volcanic cone collapsed leaving the Shira Ridge as part of its Caldera Rim. Mawenzi has been heavily eroded to leave a mass of steep-sided ridges and summits, particularly dramatic on the infrequently-seen eastern side. Kibo is the best preserved centre; it has three concentric craters and the outer crater rim rises to Uhuru Point – the chief summit. The middle, Reusch crater contains the main fumaroles and in its centre the 130m. deep and 400m. wide Ash Pit. The outer crater has been breached by lava flows in several places, the most dramatic of these being the Western Breach. The ash and lava covered slopes of Kibo are mainly gentle-angled from the steep, glaciated precipices which defend its southern and south-western flanks. The impressive rock walls on Kilimanjaro and Mawenzi are generally composed of lavas and ashes.
