Meteorite on earth another proof of water on Mars

Last Updated: Sunday, March 02, 2014, 14:54

After finding clinching evidence of the presence of water on Mars last month, NASA scientists have now unearthed a Martian meteorite in the Yamato glacier in Antarctica that features curved micro-tunnels consistent with moving water.

A new study has suggested that the largest single contributor to global sea level rise, Pine Island Glacier (PIG), a glacier of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, may continue thinning for decades to come.

Greenland`s `fastest glacier` smashes breaking speed record

Last Updated: Tuesday, February 04, 2014, 12:23

Researchers have suggested that Jakobshavn Isbrae (Jakobshavn Glacier) is moving ice from the Greenland ice sheet into the ocean at a speed that seems to be the fastest ever recorded.

Antarctica`s Pine Island Glacier enters `irreversible` melt

Last Updated: Wednesday, January 15, 2014, 14:14

Researchers have warned that Antarctica`s Pine Island Glacier(PIG) could now be in a state of irreversible retreat, making it an even more significant contributor to global sea level rise during the next two decades.

El Nino may be behind melting of Antarctica`s Pine Island Glacier

Last Updated: Friday, January 03, 2014, 19:42

The floating ice shelf at the tip of Pine Island Glacier, one of the biggest routes for ice to flow from Antarctica into the sea, has been melting and thinning for the past four decades causing the glacier to speed up and discharge more ice, researchers say.
