The team saw the dragon-skin ice as their vessel approached "ground zero" of a hurricane-strength katabatic wind event in Terra Nova Bay.
New mathematical model to explain how a massive bloom of phytoplankton is growing under the Arctic sea ice.
As the Arctic sea ice continues to disappear, Beluga whales are running out of food. Beluga whales are classified as a "near threatened" species by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.
A team of scientists from Arizona State University's School of Earth and Space Exploration has developed a multi-billion project that could refreeze the Arctic, slowing down global warming.
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.
The next 35 years is a very crucial stage in the survival of polar bears.
The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) has officially confirmed that the Arctic and Antarctic sea have reached the lowest level in sea ice. The cause is reportedly moderately warm temperatures along with a rapid shift in circumpolar winds.
32 square feet of sea ice in the Arctic lost for every metric ton of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere
A new observation from NASA revealed that the oldest and thickest ice in the arctic has either melted or thinned away due to warming summers, leaving the sea ice cap more vulnerable to the increasing temperature of the ocean and atmosphere.
The US Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has strongly reversed a lower court ruling in 2014 that questioned the enlistment of sea ice seals as threatened species, emphasizing that such may happen considering climate change.
A new study revealed that climate change is occuring long before man shoot carbon emission in the atmosphere.
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.
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 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.
Conservationists and wildlife biologists alike are bound to be disappointed. A new study has determined that 'walking hibernation' - a fabled adaptation that could help some bear species survive in unwelcoming environments - just isn't possible for polar bears. As a result, there is even less faith that these critically endangered creatures will ever survive a warming world.
