25 junio 2015

The relentless flow of a glacier may seem unstoppable, but a team of researchers from the United Kingdom and the U.S. has shown that during some calving events — when an iceberg breaks off into the ocean — the glacier moves rapidly backward and downward, causing the characteristic glacial earthquakes which until now have been poorly understood.
