Increasing ice-free areas in Antarctica could negatively affect the plant and animal life that are unique in the continent.
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.
Ancient preserved deep-sea corals were found to be useful by experts in reconstructing uranium traces that can provide the northern glacial activities thousands of years ago. The new possible approach has paved another opportunity in understanding past climatic scenarios and its effect on the marine ecosystem.
Data from the U.S. National Snow and Ice Data Center revealed that the Arctic sea ice is at the second lowest minimum ever recorded.
Have we reached the end? Researchers said once it happens, the consequences are irreversible.
Following especially warm summers and increased icemelt, Greenland's ice sheet appears to waterlogged and unable to to buffer its contribution to rising sea levels.
Melting Arctic ice means natural underground permafrost freezers can no longer keep food cold enough and encourages polar bears to visit inland communities for longer periods of time. This calls for new and improved above ground polar bear-resistant food storage containers.
Recently, researchers have pointed out that Antarctica's melting hasn't been as intense as many climate change experts had feared. However, new research has revealed that this is all about to change, with new data hinting that the White Continent's surface will double its current melt rate by 2050.
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.
University of Alaska Fairbanks researchers recently developed a computer program that estimates the impact climate change could have on the Antarctic ice sheet.
Researchers have been surveying bottom-dwellers in Antarctica for over two decades. After comparing high-resolution images, they found that an increasing amount of marine organisms are produced annually and they are storing surprisingly high amounts of carbon.
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.
Previous sea level rise predictions are higher than new estimates. Stanford researchers using Earth's distant past as a reference found roughly a 50-foot difference in the two calculations. Where does that leave NYC, Miami, and New Orleans?
There are new factors in why the pre-historic ice sheet that covered Canada may have melted, and how this might affect Greenland and Antarctica.
