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.
A giant Antarctic iceberg is one of the newest tourist attractions in the town of Ferryland, drawing attention to travelers and iceberg chasers in the small Canadian town.
The mystery behind Greenland’s icy history, where it was ice-free for 280,000 years, could help in research for climate change survival. However, mapping the history of the ice growth and shrinkage proves to be a remarkably difficult task. While researchers are digging deeper into the past, the ice narrative is becoming even more tangled.
Contrary to earlier predictions made by scientists, Greenland ice is melting at 7 percent faster. According to a new study which made use of GPS, Greenland is losing approximately 40 trillion pounds in year. The estimate is more than what scientists had thought.
The oldest known fossil in the world has been found in Greenland by researchers and is believed to be 3.7 billion years ago, which is 220 million years earlier than the prior oldest known fossil found in Australia.
By using an unusual method of carbon dating from past nuclear bomb testings, scientists have determined that a 400-year-old Greenland shark is officially the world's longest living vertebrate.
Warming Arctic waters have cleared the way for the Crystal Serenity to be the first luxury cruise ship to traverse the Northwest Passage. It sets sail from Alaska on Aug. 16, on a voyage through the waters of the Canadian Arctic, continuing to Greenland.
2015 in northwest Greenland, recent studies show the very first evidence linking the melting in Greenland to the expected effects and the confirmation of the phenomenon called the Arctic amplification
New study reveals that less precipitation and evaporation in the inner regions of Greenland prevent the ice sheets from melting as rapidly as those in coastal areas.
Greenland ice melted on Monday at such a catastrophic speed that scientists could hardly believe it. It was such an the "extreme melt event" that experts had to check if they were making a mistake.
Climate change has long been considered a threat to human beings, but a new study showed that climate change also affects how the Earth tilts its axis in an interesting and harmless way.
Hidden under Greenland’s ice sheet is an intricate natural "plumbing system" that regularly drains subglacial lakes, impacting ice sheet flow and sea level rise.
Researchers from University of Cambridge and University of Colorado say that if active steps are taken by nations to decrease emissions from permafrost thaw in particular, this could reduce predicted emissions cost by $37 trillion. But that's not the case yet.
Researchers from Dartmouth College studied Arctic mosquitoes in western Greenland in order to better understand the impact climate change has on their growth, development and ability to escape predation.
As part of their ongoing "ScienceCasts" video series, Science@NASA reminds just how closely experts from around the world have been keeping a wary eye on Greenland's ice sheet. The result has been a mountain of research all showing the same thing: under the thinning of ice is a whole lot of nothing, and that's not good news.
