Back in 2002, NASA created a film using satellite data that took viewers on a tour of Earthâ€™s frozen regions. This year, NASA visualizers are taking viewers on a return trip to see how things have changed over the years.
Modern glaciers, such as those making up the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, are capable of undergoing periods of rapid shrinkage or retreat, according to new findings by paleoclimatologists at the University at Buffalo.
A US rocket scientist sent 90 rubber ducks into the ice of the fastest-moving Greenland glacier, hoping someone finds them if they emerge in Baffin Bay.
Researchers monitoring daily satellite images here of Greenlandâ€™s glaciers have discovered break-ups at two of the largest glaciers in the last month.
With digital imaging techniques, scientists find new data in old aerial photographs
Environmental ministers and officials from 23 countries met Thursday near a glacier that is retreating at an alarming pace and agreed that governments must stop arguing over global warming and start acting.
At 32 degrees Fahrenheit, or 0 Celsius, ice changes to water. This simple, unique fact dominates the climate in Earth's polar regions. Using satellites to detect changes over time, NASA researchers and NASA-funded university scientists have found that Earth's ice cover is changing rapidly near its poles. Recent studies point to new evidence of relationships between climate warming, ice changes and sea level rise.
When people talk about something moving at a glacial pace, they are referring to speeds that make a tortoise look like a hare. While it is all relative, glaciers actually flow at speeds that require time lapses to recognize.
