Seismic vibrations provide a new, accurate way to monitor ice sheet decline

Tested in Greenland, the seismic wave data provides an opportunity to gather constant information on the ...

We currently measure changes in ice sheets via data gathered by missions such as NASA’s Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) satellite, or by flying planes over a region and using lasers to map topography. But there could be a better way, with a team of researchers, led by scientists at MIT, getting positive results from a new method that tracks seismic vibrations caused by ocean waves to measure changes in ice volume.
