Latest Greenland ice sheet Stories
Satellite observations and a state-of-the art regional atmospheric model have independently confirmed that the Greenland ice sheet is loosing mass at an accelerating rate, reports a new study in Science.
An international team of environmental scientists led by the University of Pennsylvania has shown that sea-level rise, at least in North Carolina, is accelerating.
The US space agency says it is ready to start a study of the Earth's southern ice-covered regions to identify changes in sea ice, ice sheets and glaciers.
At an Oxford University climate conference, experts announced that sea levels across the globe will almost inevitably rise more than 6 feet.
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.
The most comprehensive picture of the rapidly thinning glaciers along the coastline of both the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets has been created using satellite lasers.
Will all of the ice on Greenland melt and flow out into the sea, bringing about a colossal rise in ocean levels on Earth, as the global temperature rises?
Scientists are trying to determine what occurred in Greenlandâ€™s history to cause its glaciers to rapidly melt, and what implications it might have for the earthâ€™s future in light of looming global warming.
Greenland's glaciers are dumping ice into the Atlantic Ocean at an alarming rate, according to a statement by the environmental group Greenpeace on Wednesday.
This summer, a group of scientists and students â€” as well as a Canadian senator, a writer, and a filmmaker â€” set out from Resolute Bay, Canada, on the icebreaker Louis S. St-Laurent.
