A new technique could give insight into how Antarctic sea ice has changed throughout time.
Like in the Arctic, Antarctic and even Canada, glaciers in Alaska are melting. Now, new research reveals that like their famous brethren, they may make large contributions to global sea level rise.
Just yesterday, Nature World News reported on Greenland's mysteriously vanishing lakes, which can drain entirely in just a matter of a few hours. But now, a subsequent study is saying that while warming temperatures have created more of these supraglacial lakes, they are not likely to worsen Greenland's contribution to sea level rise.
