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.
No, I'm not talking about 200 years from present day. But new research has shown evidence of a 200-year lag between climate events in Greenland and Antarctica during the last ice age, and it could possibly help shed light on the consequences of climate change in the future.
A fleet of icebergs is probably not to blame for abrupt episodes of cooling in the North Atlantic over the past 440,000 years, according to new research.
For some time now, scientists have been trying to determine whether the Red Planet once held water suitable for life, and now new research adds to the growing evidence, finding that belts of glaciers on Mars boast enough water to flood the entire planet.
As a result of climate change and warming temperatures, glaciers in Western Canada are to shrink a staggering 70 percent by 2100, according to new research.
New research has found evidence of a positive feedback mechanism brought on by climate change in which global warming itself may intensify a rise in greenhouse gases, resulting in additional warming.
Researchers at Dartmouth College are casting doubt on the leading theory of what causes ice ages around the world, which could possibly help shed light on what we can expect in the future as our global climate continues to change.
Climate change and warming temperatures are currently melting the ice on Greenland, but this region was not always one giant ice sheet. In a new study, researchers explain that Earth tectonics and other interior processes led to the glaciers that we see on Greenland today.
Beneath the barren whiteness of Greenland, there lies a mysterious frozen underworld, which through its melting and refreezing process, may be speeding its ice flow to the sea.
Most of the United States is gearing up for the fast approaching summer months, traces of the icy winter far behind them, but the Great Lakes are just thawing out after a record-breaking seven months of being frozen.
Earth's mantle under Antarctica is moving at such a rapid rate it is changing the shape of the land, a new study published in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters explained.
Yet another melting ice formation in Antarctica may dump so much water into the ocean that it could trigger an unstoppable rise in sea level for thousands of years to come, a new study published in Nature Climate Change revealed.
