Arctic - New Film Explores Combining Indigenous Knowledge and Western Science to Understand Waning Arctic Sea Ice

Under human-driven climate change, the Arctic is warming much faster than the globe as a whole. This is disrupting ecosystems, landscapes and seascapes that indigenous communities have depended on for countless generations.

Arctic - We need to worry about ice, says NASA's Ice scientist Rachel Tilling

When Tilling first started, most of the estimates of when the Arctic might become ice free were by the end of the century. Now there’s papers coming out saying maybe in the next couple of decades.

ANT - Invasive species 'hitchhiking' on tourist and research ships threaten Antarctica's unique ecosystems

Marine life hitching a ride on ocean-crossing ships poses a threat to Antarctica's pristine ecosystems, with the potential for invasive species to arrive from almost anywhere across the globe, say the authors of a new study.

ANTARCTIC - What Antarctica's 'Doomsday' Glacier Could Mean For The World

The massive Thwaites glacier in West Antarctica contains enough ice to raise global sea levels by 65cm if it were to completely collapse. And, worryingly, recent research suggests that its long-term stability is doubtful as the glacier hemorrhages more and more ice.

ANT - Antarctic oceanographers use seals to do research where ships fear to go

Oceanographers have great difficulty conducting investigations by ship in Antarctic continental shelf areas where ice is attached to the shore, so a team of researchers have replaced these boat-based studies with sensors attached to seals, which have far less trouble navigating such waters.

Arctic - After thousands of years, an iconic whale confronts a new enemy

For millennia, vast expanses of the Arctic Ocean have been untouched by humans, ocean where narwhals and other marine mammals lived undisturbed. Now that climate change is causing sea ice to melt, there has been an uptick of human activity in the Arctic. This has resulted in significantly more noise from an array of human sources, including seismic surveys, mine blasts, port projects and cruise ships.

ARCTIC - US Arctic Report Card is incomplete without tackling solutions

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is expected to release its 2021 Arctic Report Card this week, covering topics from loss of sea ice to thawing permafrost and wildfires. Although the science behind the report card will be impeccable, the report itself will deserve no better grade than an “incomplete” if it fails to discuss measures to protect the Arctic.

Arctic - Researchers identify behavioral adaptations that may help Antarctic fishes to adapt to warming Southern Ocean

In a new study published in PLOS ONE, Michael Friedlander and his team at the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute describe how Antarctic fishes with and without hemoglobin react to acute thermal stress. The findings characterize species-specific behavioral responses that may help these endemic species withstand the impacts of climate change.
