The floating ice shelf in a remote region of Antarctica is being melted by warm ocean water, not hot air, an international team of researchers report in the latest edition of the journal Science.

British Antarctic Survey To Launch Long-Term Survey Of Pine Island Glacier
2013-09-09 10:34:32

An ambitious science mission is about to begin in Antarctica, with team members from the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) looking to understand why the continent’s Pine Island Glacier (PIG), located on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, is rapidly diminishing.

West Antarctica's Ice Sheet 20 Million Years Older Than Previosuly Estimated
2013-09-05 07:26:16

A research team led by professors at the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) has revealed that, contrary to popular belief, an ice sheet on West Antarctica existed 20 million years earlier than previously thought.

Rising Sea Waters Threaten Hawaiian Shorelines

After examining other influences on shoreline change including waves, sediment supply and littoral processes, and anthropogenic changes, the best explanation for the difference in island-wide shoreline trends, such as beach erosion or accretion, is the differing rates of relative sea-level rise on Hawaiian islands.

One of the largest canyons in the world has been discovered beneath the Greenland ice sheet, according to new research appearing in the latest edition of the journal Science.

Smallest Continent Had Biggest Role In Sea Level Drop
2013-08-20 08:53:03

A unique and complex set of circumstances came together over Australia from 2010 to 2011 to cause Earth’s smallest continent to be the biggest contributor to the observed drop in global sea level rise during that time

Current Sea Level Rise
2013-04-01 10:39:21

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...
