Latest Ice core Stories
Scientists say that a new historical record of carbon dioxide levels is showing that current political targets on climate may be "playing with fire."
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.
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?
Sediment cores show the Arctic has been warmer during the past decade than during any 10-year period in the last 2,000 years, scientists said. The study provides a clear example of how increased greenhouse gases are now changing our climate, said Caspar Ammann of the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colo. Ammann and his team studied sediment cores from lakes, tree rings and ice cores, all of which showed the Arctic has been warming since about 1850 -- the beginning of the...
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.
A new 2,000-year-long reconstruction of sea surface temperatures (SST) from the Indo-Pacific warm pool (IPWP) suggests that temperatures in the region may have been as warm during the Medieval Warm Period as they are today.
A new international research effort on the Greenland ice sheet with the University of Colorado at Boulder as the lead U.S. institution set a record for single-season deep ice-core drilling this summer
The first season of the international drilling project NEEM (North Greenland Eemian Ice Drilling) in north-western Greenland was completed at August 20th.
New research, which reconstructs the extent of ice in the sea between Greenland and Svalbard from the 13th century to the present indicates that there has never been so little sea ice as there is now.
Two abrupt and drastic climate events, 700 years apart and more than 45 centuries ago, are teasing scientists who are now trying to use ancient records to predict future world climate.
