AI developed to monitor changes to the globally important Thwaites Glacier

Scientists have developed artificial intelligence techniques to track the development of crevasses — or fractures — on the Thwaites Glacier Ice Tongue in west Antarctica. A team of scientists has adapted an AI algorithm originally developed to identify cells in microscope images to spot crevasses forming in the ice from satellite images. Crevasses are indicators of stresses building-up in the glacier.
