Franz Josef Glacier delivers major finding

A mathematical model has shown for the first time how climate change will increase glacial erosion by speeding up movement of the icy giants.

Using New Zealand's Franz Josef Glacier as a model, a team of international scientists confirmed a theoretical model first proposed in the 1970s by demonstrating that the rate of glacial erosion was proportional to the square of the glacier's speed.
