"By 2018 Ventisquero Negro has retreated 1450 m since 1985, with the proglacial lake still growing. Alerce Glacier has retreated 800 m since 1985 and Castana Overo Glacier has retreated 400 m. All three glaciers have significant crevassing indicating substantial retained accumulation being transported down slope."

"These ROV dives are using what we call our low-altitude survey system. I have been lucky to help assemble this payload to provide a new perspective. There are three primary sensors: the first is a familiar one, a pair of small cameras that are arranged in the same way as our eyes, providing stereo vision – a sense of space and depth."

In AGU blogs: "This native New Mexican turtle is found in rivers, ditches, and lakes in the southern part of the state and is classified as a vulnerable species on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) Red List. It is listed as such largely due to competition and interbreeding with the non-native Red-eared slider."
