Latest Eemian Stories
New research findings based on Greenland ice cores show that if climate change patterns repeat themselves, the Earth will become much warmer and sea levels will rise significantly.
The Eemian interglacial period that began some 125,000 years ago is often used as a model for contemporary climate change.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is accepting written requests from professional journalists to report on research--including studies of the ice sheet, climate change and atmospheric chemistry--supported in Greenland by NSF's Office of Polar Programs (OPP).
International team of climate researchers drill through a mile and half of the Greenland ice sheet in search of climate change insights.
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.
Researchers evaluate climate fluctuations from 115,000 years ago.
Global warming in this century might raise sea levels more than expected in future centuries, says a study that looked at what happened at a time when Neanderthals roamed Europe.
In 2007 alone, it lost volume equivalent to draining San Francisco Bay every week.
Scientists are taking a more in-depth view of how climate change could affect Antarcticaâ€™s ice, and how even a small change in temperature could lead to a global rise in sea levels.
An international team of scientists, led by Denmark, says it set a single-season deep ice core drilling record this summer in Greenland. The researchers, with the University of Colorado at Boulder as the lead U.S.
