Latest Ice ages Stories
New evidence of sea-level oscillations during a warm period that started about 125,000 years ago raises the possibility of a similar scenario if the planet continues its more recent warming trend.
Scientists at the University of York, using an 'amino acid time capsule', have led the largest ever program to date the British Quaternary period, stretching back nearly three million years.
Melting ice sheets contributed much more to rising sea levels than thermal expansion of warming ocean waters during the Last Interglacial Period, a UA-led team of researchers has found.
Study on Jakobshavn Isbrae supports growing evidence that calving glaciers are particularly sensitive to climate change.
Fresh research into glaciers could help scientists better predict the impact of changing climates on global sea levels.
The last glacial maximum, which occurred 21,000 years ago, effects the current distribution of European scarab dung beetles; according to CSIC research, these results could help understanding the consequences of current climate change.
Finds that rocks used as key geologic evidence were formed deep within Earth millions of years after the ice age ended.
A team of scientists from the University of Sheffield and Bangor University have used a computer climate model to study how freshwater entering the oceans at the end of the penultimate Ice Age 140,000 years ago affected the parts of the ocean currents that control climate.
Cooling trend could be on the way unless thwarted by greenhouse gasses.
A set of maps created by the University of Sheffield have illustrated, for the first time, how our last British ice sheet shrunk during the Ice Age.
