A new research has provided major latest theory that might explain the cause of ice age that covered large parts of the Northern Hemisphere 2.6 million years ago.
Researchers have long tried to explain why ice-age cycles became longer and more intense some 900,000 years ago, switching from 41,000-year cycles to 100,000-year cycles.
Large animals in Ice Age that included Sabre-toothed cats, huge kangaroos, and a leopard-sized marsupial lion became extinct because of human hunters and not climate change, says a new study.
A new study has revealed that Antarctic started losing ice sheets about 5,000 years earlier than previously thought.
Archaeologists have debunked the cosmic-impact theory that a comet sparked climate change at the end of the Ice Age, causing mass animal extinction.
Researchers from the British Antarctic Survey and Reading University have shown that moss can come back to life and continue to grow even after being frozen in Antarctic ice for over 1,500 years.
Researchers has found evidence that the steam and heat from volcanoes and heated rocks allowed many species of plants and animals to survive past ice ages.
Flowering plants may have been a critical source of nutrition for large ancient mammals, shows a new research.
A team of researchers has used DNA testing to give a unique view of the diet of large mammals which roamed the northern hemisphere in the last ice-age.
Researchers have said that the gut content from permafrozen woolly rhinos, mammoth and other extinct ice age mammals could help reveal what led to this extinction.
The fifth installement of hit animation series `Ice Age` is set to release on July 15, 2016.
Researchers have found that climate change, instead of hunting by humans, was responsible for the extinction of the woolly mammoth.
Researchers have found that the extraordinary “reverse” of global warming has led to a 60 per cent rise in ice-covered ocean, giving way to a new trend dubbed “global cooling”.
Analysis of an Antarctic ice core has revealed that warming in the frozen continent began about 22,000 years ago, a few thousand years earlier than suggested by earlier records.
A US-led research team studying a new ice core from West Antarctica found that warming there was well under way 20,000 years ago.
Scientists have explained a new mechanism behind Earth`s 100,000-year Ice Age cycle that points to the alternating influence of continental ice sheets and climate on this global climatic interchange.
Iron may not have played an important role in the formation of the North Pacific Ocean, new research has revealed.
Scientists say tiny bubbles of water found in quartz grains in Australia may hold the key to understanding what caused the Earth`s first ice age.
Many scientists assumed that during the last ice age, when thick ice covered the Arctic, the deep currents below that feed the North Atlantic Ocean and help drive global ocean currents slowed or even stopped.
About 12,800 years ago when the Earth was warming and emerging from the last ice age, a dramatic and anomalous event occurred that abruptly reversed climatic conditions back to near-glacial state.
