The loss of Antarctic mass, paired by ocean warming, could potentially increase global sea levels by up to 10 feet by 2100.
New research shows that England and Northern Europe in particular are at risk of major sea level rise in the future – more so than previously thought.
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.
With climate change heating things up, and the Earth's poles rapidly melting, it should come as no surprise that a major Antarctic ice shelf may completely disappear by 2020, according to a new NASA study.
One of Antarctica's largest ice shelves is thinning from above and below, helping scientists finally understand just what exactly is causing this rapid ice melt, according to new research.
It seems that every day scientists are telling us how climate change is causing the Antarctic ice sheet to melt, threatening to raise sea levels and drive the region's iconic penguins into extinction. And now, it appears that Antarctica, which was already rapidly disappearing, is melting faster than ever before.
The Gulf Stream system, one of Earth's most important heat transport systems, is slower than ever before, and researchers warn that it may result in drastic climate impacts, according to a new study.
Massive amounts of glacier melt and freshwater are pouring into the Gulf of Alaska, which may not seem like a big deal, but new research shows that this runoff can potentially have a drastic impact on both marine life to global sea level.
