Wet granular media can exhibit distinctly complex behavior. For example, one can sculpt a castle with wet sand, but not with dry sand or with sand submerged in water. It has been challenging to unravel these phenomena because the effective stresses transmitted through the particles have not been accessible to direct observation.

Ice sheets play a key role within the Earth’s climate and tectonic systems, yet understanding the physical processes governing their evolution in the past and future presents challenges. Floating ice shelves found on the margins of Antarctica buttress the remainder of the ice sheet, yet are at risk of collapsing as the climate warms.
