Polar bears in the Barents Sea population use their environment in two different ways. Bears that spend most of their time offshore are exposed to higher levels of pollutants than bears that stay along the coast due to differences in feeding habits, energy expenditure, and geographical distribution.
I joined Greenpeace on the high seas at the end of their year-long project to abolish a severe threat to our oceans
Today's icy wasteland would've once played host to huge amounts of plant-life – during an unusually toasty period in history 90million years ago.
Since pre-industrial times, the world's oceans have warmed by an average of one degree Celsius (1°C). Now researchers report that those rising temperatures have led to widespread changes in the population sizes of marine species. The researchers found a general pattern of species having increasing numbers on their poleward sides and losses toward the equator.
University of California, Irvine and NASA scientists assess ice sheet with potential to raise global sea levels nearly 5 feet
University of California Irvine and NASA JPL project tracking Earth-sensing satellite turnover yields striking results
CNT Publisher: As the ice melts away, it's game on. Human beings look north to the vast untapped Arctic oil and gas fields. The coast, even the frozen ones, are in a constant state of transition.
March 11, 2020 – According to a new report, Greenland and Antarctica are losing ice six times faster than in the 1990s – currently on track with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s worst-case climate warming scenario.
Einar Gunnarsson, Ambassador Arctic Affairs, Iceland and Chair of the Arctic Council’s Senior Arctic Officials, sheds light on why the changing region of the Arctic requires cooperation
Fishing cargo vessels operating in Antarctic waters are failing a majority of their safety inspections, a Greenpeace International report claims.
More than half of the planet's fresh water is in Antarctica. While most of it is frozen in the ice sheets, underneath the ice pools and streams of water flow into one another and into the Southern Ocean surrounding the continent. Understanding the movement of this water, and what is dissolved in it as solutes, reveals how carbon and nutrients from the land may support life in the coastal ocean.
