It's no secret that Greenland's glaciers are melting in the face of warming temperatures, but a new analysis aims to show just how their ebb and flow will impact sea level rise in the future.
It's no secret that our warming climate is causing ice everywhere to melt, but now new research shows that this thaw may release a massive storehouse of carbon in long-frozen Arctic soils.
Polar bears have enough to worry about with climate change, and now new research shows that their health is threatened by environmental contaminants, which are starting to affect their endocrine system and reproduction.
As climate change melts Arctic sea ice and forces polar bears onto steady shores, it seems that they will have to adapt to a new diet. However, it is highly unlikely that these animals will be able to survive strictly on land-based foods, according to a new study.
With winter at its end, it appears that the extent of Arctic sea ice has reached its limit. Worryingly, it's the lowest extent ever seen, reaching only about 5.61 million square miles. What's more, this is also one of the earliest maximum extents ever reached, with most seen much further into the end of the season.
It's no surprise that Arctic sea ice is thinning, however, a new study shows that the rate at which it's disappearing is much faster and steadier than scientists previously thought.
Warm Atlantic Ocean waters are causing sea ice to melt in the Arctic, further contributing to the disappearance of this land mass, according to new research.
Polar bears are taking matters into their own hands and standing up to climate change, new research shows, by shifting their distribution patterns towards icier areas further north.
To add to the wealth of research on climate change and how increasing temperatures are causing Antarctic (as well as Arctic) sea ice to melt, a new study has found that Antarctica's shallow seas are now warming up as heat from the deep rises.
Arctic sea ice may completely disappear in our lifetime, according to recent research, which isn't surprising given that ice extent in the region reached an all-time low this year, shrinking to its sixth-lowest level on record.
Antarctic ice is thicker than scientists previously thought, according to a new kind of robotic survey of the underside of sea ice floes.
Sea ice extent surrounding Antarctica has smashed the previous record, covering more of the southern oceans than it has since satellite tracking started in 1979, according to NASA.
A band of 35,000 Pacific walrus are stranded in northwest Alaska, one of the last places they have to rest ashore, for melting Arctic ice is robbing them of their beach real estate, according to reports.
For the third year in a row, Antarctica's sea ice is set to smash a new record this month. But while Antarctica's sea ice soars, the Arctic ice cap is still shrinking, making scientists ponder over the effects of global warming, a new report released Tuesday imparts.
