Latest Larsen Ice Shelf Stories
This beautiful, old ice shelf will soon be gone as the last remnant is about to shatter and float away to sea.
WASHINGTON, May 14, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new NASA study finds the last remaining section of Antarctica's Larsen B Ice Shelf, which partially collapsed in 2002, is quickly weakening
A number of floating ice shelves in Antarctica are at risk of disappearing entirely in the next 200 years, as global warming reduces their snow cover.
Large stretches of ice on the coasts of Antarctica and Greenland are at risk of rapidly cracking apart and falling into the ocean in events over the coming decades that could aggravate sea level rise.
The waters around Antarctica can be an inhospitable place, but a new study has shown that dynamic events in the region are constantly shaping and even boosting the ecosystems in the Southern Ocean.
The largest remaining Antarctic ice shelf contains several cracks and crevasses that could make it prone to collapse, but areas in which different types of frozen water blend together to create areas of bendable ice that help hold it together, according to a new study presented late last week.
The Antarctic Peninsula has been continually shrinking for centuries, since long before the Industrial Revolution, according to an international team of researchers.
As ESA’s Envisat satellite marks ten years in orbit, it continues to observe the rapid retreat of one of Antarctica’s ice shelves due to climate warming.
An international team of researchers has combined data from multiple sources to provide the clearest account yet of how much glacial ice surges into the sea following the collapse of Antarctic ice shelves.
