A tiny marine filter-feeder, that anchors itself to the sea bed, offers new clues to scientists studying the stability of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet â€“ a region that is thought to be vulnerable to collapse(1).
An international science team involving the University of Colorado at Boulder that is working on the North Greenland Eemian Ice Drilling project hit bedrock July 27 after two summers of work, drilling down more than 1.5 miles in an effort to help assess the risks of abrupt future climate change on Earth.
New detailed observations of what happens when glaciers float on ocean surface.
Newly detected rising sea levels in parts of the Indian Ocean, including the coastlines of the Bay of Bengal, the Arabian Sea, Sri Lanka, Sumatra and Java, appear to be at least partly a result of human-induced increases of atmospheric greenhouse gases.
NASA-funded researchers monitoring Greenland's Jakobshavn Isbrae glacier report that a 7 square kilometer section of the glacier broke up on July 6 and 7.
Researchers revealed Thursday that some South Pacific coral atolls have held their own or even grown in size over the past 60 years, despite rising sea levels.
Sea level has not been as high as the distinctive ridges that run down the length of Florida for millions of years.
LOS ANGELES, May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Adventurer, filmmaker, and environmentalist, Sebastian Copeland has embarked on a 1,367 mile trip across Greenland via kite-ski to help raise awareness about the effects of global warming on Greenland's climate.
Scientists from the University of Miami are surprised at how rapidly the ice is melting in Greenland and how quickly the land is rising in response.
The sea levels all around the world are rising. Current sea-level rise has the potential to affect human populations and the natural environment. Two key factors have contributed to the observed sea level rise. The first is thermal expansion: as the ocean water warms, it expands. The second is from the influence of land-based ice because of increased melting. The major store of water on land is found in the glaciers and the ice sheets. The rising of sea levels is one of several lines of...
