A strange zigzag pattern that appeared few days ago in Iceland's Lake Thingvallavatn has gotten the scientists attention.
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.
Thinning and retreat of the floating Pine Island Glacier in West Antarctica could be a part of a longer-term process that may have been triggered in the 1940s.
A new study revealed that climate change is occuring long before man shoot carbon emission in the atmosphere.
The month of May broke records world wide for the hottest temperatures recorded based on the data collected by NASA satellites.
NASA recently found minerals hidden under the ice sheets on the surface of Mars which suggests that there were volcanic eruptions beneath the surface billions of years ago.
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.
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.
Just yesterday, Nature World News reported on Greenland's mysteriously vanishing lakes, which can drain entirely in just a matter of a few hours. But now, a subsequent study is saying that while warming temperatures have created more of these supraglacial lakes, they are not likely to worsen Greenland's contribution to sea level rise.
Greenland's many supraglacial lakes have been seen suddenly and mysteriously draining as climate change causes this region to warm, and now scientists have finally explained the mechanism behind this phenomenon.
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.
The formation of the Antarctic ice sheet during a major climate shift 34 million years ago was the result of decreased carbon dioxide (CO2) levels, and not continental breakup like a widely held theory suggested, according to new research.
