Latest Ice sheets Stories
Alaska’s melting glaciers remain one of the largest contributors to the world’s rising sea levels.
A new study reveals that the world's collection of small glaciers are contributing just as much to global sea rise as the two massive ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica.
According to a new study, the dramatic glacial melt in Western Antarctica is due to natural variation and cannot be attributed directly to carbon emissions.
A growing number of studies have pegged global warming and climate change as a cause of sea ice decline in recent decades. However, a newly published study in the journal Nature Geoscience is showing a vastly different scenario.
The oft-cliché idea behind the naming of Iceland and Greenland claims their names were derived in an attempt to fool would be sailing marauders, attracting them to the desolate but more hospitably named Greenland, leaving the citizens of Iceland to live upon their slightly more lush island without threat of invasion.
The fact sea levels could rise if the polar ice caps melt has been long established, but according to new research some regions could see greater increases than others.
The uncertainty of future sea level rise is getting a little clearer thanks to research being conducted by a team of scientists.
An international group of oceanographers has published new observations that may improve our ability to predict future changes in ice sheet mass.
