Notable Articles

In 2015, Arnaud J.A.M. Temme wrote a geographical paper[1] discussing the effects of climate change on mountaineering and the structural integrity of mountains. In his article, he explained how the melting of ice draws water into the crevices of rocks. During the freeze period, ice is capable of splitting rocks while still keeping them in place and encased. During the thawing period, which increases every year, these split rocks can become loose from their mountainous structure and fall. Overall, the melting ice creates an unstable surface for climbers[2] and degrades the structural stability of mountains.
