Latest Ice sheet Stories
The public and policymakers alike were caught off guard when Hurricane Sandy hit the east coast of the US last fall. But the majority of the destruction came from the storm surge and flooding that followed the storm.
Researchers publishing a paper in the latest issue of the journal Science have found through Antarctic planktonic ice core examinations that the continental ice cap formed more than 33 million years ago.
Researchers have found that ancient geodynamics elevated segments of ancient shorelines over millions of years. This made the shorelines appear higher now than they originally were millions of years ago.
Our world is shrinking, or at least the icy parts of it are. And new studies only pile on to the growing evidence of how climate change is altering the shape of this planet.
A new study presents a sophisticated computer model that provides fresh insight into the impact of climate change on the production of icebergs by Greenland glaciers. The model also demonstrates the shape of the ground beneath the ice has a strong effect on its movement.
NASA's newest scientific rover is set for testing May 3 through June 8 in the highest part of Greenland.
NASA said its Operation IceBridge team has finished up another successful campaign to continue collecting data of Arctic ice measurements.
A new 1000-year Antarctic Peninsula climate reconstruction shows that summer ice melting has intensified almost ten-fold, and mostly since the mid 20th Century.
A researcher at University of Cincinnati says that the best way to monitor the environmental health of the Antarctic – and the whole planet – is to go with the flow. The ice flow, that is.
