Antarctica's coastal glaciers are shedding icebergs more rapidly than nature can replenish the crumbling ice, doubling previous estimates of losses from the world's largest ice sheet over the past 25 years, a satellite analysis showed on Wednesday.
Last week, Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Angus King (I-Maine) tabled the Arctic Commitment Act, a bipartisan bill to improve U.S. Arctic security.
The Arctic is often portrayed as a pristine wilderness devoid of human traces, while human settlements and infrastructure are underrepresented. However, for the people living in the Arctic, infrastructure and settlements play a critical role.
The Conversation - Warmer waters are flowing towards the East Antarctic ice sheet, according to our alarming new research which reveals a potential new driver of global sea-level rise.
Fluorinated ‘forever chemicals,’ known as such because that do not naturally break down in the environment, are increasing in one of the most remote regions of Antarctica, researchers have discovered.
In a new Journal of Climate article, MAPP and CVP-funded authors Ian Baxter and Qinghua Ding conduct a set of nudging simulations by specifying observed winds into a fully coupled model to assess the sensitivity of the sea ice response to different wind patterns.
If all Greenland's ice melts, it would raise the seas by more than 24 feet.
Alarming stories from Antarctica are now more frequent than ever; the ice surface is melting, floating ice shelves are collapsing and glaciers are flowing faster into the ocean.
Millions of tonnes of carbon and methane, trapped in permafrost for thousands of years, could be released
Controversy over shipping routes in the Arctic Ocean is intensifying in light of recent climate science projections of sea ice melt. By midcentury, ice-free routes in international waters once covered by summer sea ice may appear for the first time in recent history, according to new research. A more accessible Arctic could influence the timing, sustainability, and legal status of international shipping.
A new analysis of observed temperatures shows the Arctic is heating up more than four times faster than the rate of global warming.
Melting ice in the Arctic Ocean could yield new trade routes in international waters, reducing the shipping industry's carbon footprint and weakening Russia's control over trade routes through the Arctic, a study found.
The Factorian Deep is a 7,432-meter deep underwater trench in the Southern Ocean.
