Alley's work in glaciology
and global climate change is highly regarded, and he is also known as a top science communicator by colleagues and peers, members of Congress, and the public.
The team's study, published in the Journal of Glaciology
, describes the salty water's 300-foot path from beneath Taylor Glacier to the waterfall.
Each mountain description details the historical context, including the first ascent, key climbs, and other achievements, as well as photos and topographic maps showing the location of the virtual camera; infographics and descriptions of the geology, glaciology
