Anatomy of terminal moraine segments and implied lake stability on Ngozumpa Glacier, Nepal, from electrical resistivity tomography (ERT)

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5397980
PMID: 28425458
DOI: 10.1038/srep46766

[…] ce. Considering the high-altitude accumulation area, the following section discusses whether cold ice can feasibly be present in the lower ablation area at Ngozumpa Glacier.Evidence from the European Alps suggests that very few mountain glaciers are temperature thoughout. The advection dominant thermal structure of the Groner Glacier in the Swiss Alps has been extensively studied, revealing a cent […]


Atmospheric drying as the main driver of dramatic glacier wastage in the southern Indian Ocean

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5007672
PMID: 27580801
DOI: 10.1038/srep32396

[…] ated without accounting for changes in atmospheric circulation that affect precipitation rates. This has been demonstrated in the case of past abrupt changes in other regions, such as in the European Alps or in the Central Andes of Argentina and Chile during the LIA. We suggest that future ice losses based on CMIP5 should be considered with great caution where atmospheric circulation changes are e […]


Emerging applications of read profiles towards the functional annotation of the genome

Front Genet
PMCID: 4437211
PMID: 26042150
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2015.00188

[…] The application of read profiles has also been extended to compare processing patterns between two RNAs. Methods like ALPS (Erhard and Zimmer, ) and deepBlockAlign (Langenberger et al., ) have been developed to compare read profiles. Whereas, one application of these “read profile based alignment” methods is to ident […]
