Every year Earth’s glaciers vanish a little bit more. Here's what scientists are planning to preserve their memory.
NASA's ambitious IceBridge project surveyed a larger area for this year's annual Arctic Ice Survey. The mission called IceBridge surveyed the Eurasian side of the Arctic by completing 39 flights.
This desperate plan to save the iconic Swiss glaciers just might work.
Another unexpected consequence of the rapidly changing climate: a river has suddenly vanished in Canada as the water heads in the opposite direction of its usual route.
Researchers found that most of the carbon in the stream was produced by photosynthesizing bacteria.
Some Himalayan glaciers were granted with living human entity with same rights as a person to prevent environmental damage. The decision was made after alarming receding rate of glaciers were recorded.
Just last week, Antarctica had another major iceberg break. It happened in the erratic Pine Island Glacier. The dramatic event was captured by NASA satellites.
NASA and USGS are using a real-time ice sheet viewing process in order to study the factors that influence the movement of glaciers and ice sheets towards the sea.
Tibet has suffered two consecutive avalanches in the past year, and many are curious about the probable causes of these two tragic events. The first avalanche in July displaced a massive amount of ice and rock, while the second avalanche last September involved even more. One study discovered that the recent avalanches are caused primarily by climate change in the region.
Different vertebrate species in the eastern United States have responded to the effects of climate change over the last 500,000 years differently.
NASA IceBridge data shows the alarming retreat of ice sheets in the Antarctic region.
A new study revealed that 2.3 million living in La Paz and El Alto, Bolivia is at risk due to the receding glaciers caused by the increasing temperature in the region.
Recent results of an exploration led by the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) shows what appears to be evidence that 6 to 10 million years ago, the Arctic Ocean is iceless during the summer season.
As global warming continues to rapidly heat up the Eath, the mighty glaciers are rapidly melting, disrupting the natural movement of the water on earth. Researchers say that in 2100, the sea level will rise up to more than six feet, a phenomenon which could flood and submerge major cities in the world.
Cheetahs migrated to Africa from North America 100,000 years ago during the last Ice Age. Following their "big move," populations dwindled and incestuous breeding increased. This troubled linage has had a lasting impact on modern Cheetahs, many of which have difficulty reproducing due to a gene mutation that affects sperm development.
