Researchers use lasers to get a new view on Oregon’s glaciers

Credit: University of Oregon The latest technology to study glaciers fits in a backpack and can be carried up steep mountains. University of Oregon researchers have developed a portable tool that uses lasers to measure the composition of glacial ice, data that can help determine how fast that ice is melting. The instrument can be … Read more
