Researchers writing in the journal Nature say that ocean warming could be causing a four-fold increase in ice loss on the Greenland Ice Sheet.
Researchers from the University of Washington and the German Space Agency (DLR) say that a Greenland glacier is slipping off into the ocean at a speed never before seen.
According to a new study from the European Space Agency, ice in northern Alaska’s lakes during winter months is on the decline. Twenty years of satellite radar images in the study show how shifts in our climate are affecting high-latitude regions.
This week, a high-precision radar instrument from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) left for Iceland to create detailed maps of how glaciers move in the dead of winter.

Researchers Dr. Chris Moore and Dr. Daniel Obrist, from Nevada's Desert Research Institute, have recently discovered an increased level of mercury in Arctic sea ice. The study, published in the journal Nature, also found that the mercury is contaminating sea water below.

Antarctica’s Pine Island Glacier is now in an irreversible retreat, according to a study published in the journal Nature Climate Change.
A team of scientists from Newcastle University, the University of Bristol’s Glaciology Centre, The British Antarctic Survey and the universities of Edinburgh, Exeter and York, have discovered a giant trench below the ice in Antarctica.
A climate change science-tourism expedition got trapped when they set out to prove global warming is causing Antarctica's sea ice to melt, despite data showing the Antarctic 2013 year-average
The Columbia Plateau ecoregion is a Level III ecoregion designed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency in the U.S. states of Oregon and Washington, with little areas over the Washington state border in Idaho. This ecoregion stretches across a wide swath of the Columbia River Basin from the Dalles, Oregon to Lewiston, Idaho to Okanogan, Washington near the Canadian border. It incorporates nearly 500 miles of the Columbia River, as well as the lower reaches of major tributaries....
The Arctic Ocean which is located in the Northern Hemisphere and mostly in the Arctic north polar region, is the shallowest and smallest of the world’s five major oceanic divisions. The International Hydrographic Organization recognizes it as an ocean, although, some oceanographers consider it as the Arctic Mediterranean Sea or simply, the Arctic Sea, classifying it a Mediterranean sea or an estuary of the Atlantic Ocean. Alternatively, the Arctic Ocean can be considered as the northernmost...
Meltwater is water that is released from melting snow or ice. This includes meltwater from glacial ice and ice shelves over oceans. Meltwater is often produced during volcanic eruptions, and can cause dangerous lahars (landslides of wet volcanic debris). When meltwater pools on the surface rather than draining or flowing away, it forms pools known as melt ponds. Meltwater will often refreeze as the temperature drops. Meltwater can also collect or melt under the ice's surface. Sub-glacial...
