A new technique could give insight into how Antarctic sea ice has changed throughout time.
Scientists focused on Antarctica have been keenly observing the rapid progression of a large crack on the ice. The crack on Larsen C, one of the world’s greatest ice shelves found on the northern major ice shelf of the Antarctic Peninsula, is growing to around 350 kilometers. This is as wide as Delaware, according to reports.
The recent activity in Antarctica may seem innocuous, but they can spell disaster. From stunning lakes to expanding cracks, find out how the region is in danger as an effect of the rapidly rising heat.
Ice-free Antarctica? Not much to expect yet, as it is only 0.18 percent of the continent is ice-free, new map reveals.
The mystery of expanding ice sheets around the Antarctica is linked to long-term climate cycle according to a new study.
A new study showed that the cooler-tan-average sea surface temperature at the Eastern Pacific has provided the Antarctic sea ice with the right condition to increase its growth rate.
Adélie penguins may be very adorable, but we can lose these iconic creatures if we don't work towards their conservation. A new study puts a looming deadline: 2099.
A Meteorite embedded with pieces of opal were found on the Antarctic. Experts believe that the opals are from an extra-terrestrial origin and definitely did not come from Earth. This proves that asteroids may have brought with it water ice on Earth, seeding life on the planet.
Though it looks lovely, scientists revealed that the occurrence of pink snow in the Arctic is caused by red algae that help in rapid ice melting. As temperature increases, the spread of the red algae in cold places could supercharge global warming.
A new study revealed that surface water in the Antarctic ocean is being pushed northward, which allows the old,deep water to surface, delaying the effects of global warming in the Antarctic.
A new study of more than 6,000 marine fossils from Antarctica reveals that the mass extinction event, which killed dinosaurs, was sudden and just as deadly to life in the polar regions.
Staph is one of the most common causes of skin infections in the U.S. A strain of Staph, MRSA often causes mild to serious skin infections, which can lead pneumonia and bloodstream infections.
A team of international scientist coming from Australia, South Africa and United States have unearthed a ton of fossils in the James Ross Island in Antartica.
A ribbon-shaped lake measuring about 100 kilometers long and 10 kilometers wide, connecting to a canyon stream roughly 1,000 kilometers long, was found hiding deep below the icy surface of Antarctica.
