Rising Temperatures Could Lead To Sea Levels Rising Three Feet Or More
2012-11-15 13:56:59

A rapid response between global temperatures and ice volume/sea-level that could lead to sea-levels rising by over 3 feet have been revealed by a new study from the University of Southampton.

NASA Studies Antarctic Sea Ice

A new NASA/British Antarctic Survey study examines why Antarctic sea ice cover has increased under the effects of climate change over the past two decades.

Greenland Could Be Affected By Warming Temperatures

There are almost as many global climate models as there are climate scientists. Even with all of these models, however, it's very difficult to pin down how warming temperatures globally will affect any specific region.

Understanding Antarctic Ice Loss

Utilizing satellite data, a team was able to more accurately calculate the ice sheet mass loss by mapping and removing the mass changes caused by the flow of rock beneath the Earth’s surface.

Polar Ice Sheet Melt Influenced By Underwater Landscape
2012-10-17 12:25:09

In a study on polar ice sheet melt around Antarctica, a group of British researchers has found that the shape of water channels beneath the ice can have a strong effect on ice behavior, temporarily hiding indications of its retreat.

Antarctic Ice Facing Changes By Fast-Flowing Glaciers
2012-09-19 14:14:23

A new study found that fast-flowing and narrow glaciers could trigger massive changes in the Antarctic ice sheet, inevitably adding sea-level rise and ice-sheet decay.

Baffin Island Provides Clues To Glacier Melt
2012-09-14 09:16:08

New research, led by the University at Buffalo, is examining an important mystery surrounding climate change: How quickly do glaciers melt and grow in response to shifts in temperature.

Arctic Sea Ice Expected To Hit Record Low Soon
2012-08-22 07:46:38

Sea ice in the Arctic Ocean is likely to hit its lowest next week and then keep on shrinking. Scientists at the U.S. National Snow and Ice Data Center say data shows that the sea ice coverage is tracking below the previous record low, set in 2007.

Sea Ice Outlook: How Scientists Calculate State Of Sea Ice
2012-08-15 14:22:47

While the Sea Ice Outlook could be viewed as a non-scientific crowd sourcing on the low point of Arctic sea ice each year, an averaging of the results produces a surprisingly constant result year after year.

Scientists believe they have discovered a hidden rift valley that may be contributing to ice loss in West Antarctica.


Word of the Day
cowpooling
  • The practice of two or more parties jointly purchasing all or part of a butchered cow and dividing the meat between them.
The word 'cowpooling' was formed on the model of 'carpooling'.
