The massive Greenland Ice Sheet, the second largest ice sheet in the world, has long been considered a threat to global sea level rise, and now new research finds that its network of meltwater rivers and streams may be a major contributor to these rising waters.
Fossil corals found on islands in the Indian Ocean are shedding light on the future of melting polar ice sheets, an important revelation considering current climate change, according to a new study.
Previous predictions of Greenland ice loss may have been greatly underestimated, as new research shows the region's "supraglacial" lakes could trigger faster ice melt in the future.
Climate change is gradually increasing global temperatures every day, so it may not come as a surprise that in our warming world West Antarctic ice melt has tripled over the last decade, new research says.
With the world getting warmer and ice sheets melting, rising sea levels are a major concern among scientists. Now, new research claims that in the worst-case-scenario, we can expect sea levels to rise 1.8 meters (5.9 feet) at most.
With global sea levels rising, high tides are predicted to become a normalcy in the coming years due to global warming, according to a new report released Wednesday. US coastal cities in particular can expect to see daily tidal floods by 2045.
We all known that the Greenland Ice Sheet is rapidly disappearing, but new research has found that the massive slab is more sensitive to climate change than previously thought.
Changing Arctic winds may be contributing to rising global sea levels, according to a new study.
More than 400,000 years ago, a warming period pushed Greenland's ice sheet past its limit and raised global sea levels up to 6 meters, according to new research. The results may give us a glimpse as to what may happen as a result of Greenland's current climate-induced melting dilemma.
