A new study suggests that a drop in carbon dioxide (CO2) levels seems to have triggered Antarctic ice sheet formation.
A new study has revealed that Antarctic started losing ice sheets about 5,000 years earlier than previously thought.
In an alarming find, scientists have discovered that the collapse of West Antarctic ice sheet - that holds enough water to raise global seas by several feet - has already begun.
Scientists have claimed to have found the first tantalising signs of life to be detected in waters from a subglacial lake, half a mile beneath the snowy wastes of the Antarctic.
The Antarctic Ice Sheet could be an important source of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, suggest an international team of scientists.
An inflow of warmer water beneath the Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf will melt the ice from below.
The race is on to discover life in the most remote and extreme environment known on Earth.
