Antarctic winds speeding up ice melt

Changes in the winds blowing over Antarctica are warming the waters under the continental ice shelf, says a new study.

Arctic melt season lengthening, ocean rapidly warming: Study

The length of the melt season for Arctic sea ice is increasing by several days each decade, and an earlier start to the melt season is allowing the Arctic Ocean to absorb enough additional solar radiation in some places to melt as much as four feet of the Arctic ice cap`s thickness.

Greenland ice sheet melt causing four-fold global sea level increase

A new report suggests that over the past two decades, ice loss from the Greenland Ice Sheet increased four-fold contributing to one-quarter of global sea level rise.

El Nino may be partially responsible for global warming since 1950s

A new research has suggested that a natural shift to stronger warm El Nino events in the Pacific Ocean may be responsible for a substantial portion of the global warming.

Pacific Ocean warming 15 times faster than in 10,000 years

Deeper regions of the Pacific Ocean are warming 15 times faster than they did during the previous 10,000 years, a new study has found.

Climate change to undermine world ocean systems by 2100

Scientists have found that no corner of the world ocean will be untouched by climate change by 2100, with the sea experiencing the simultaneous effects of warming, acidification and oxygen depletion.

Climate change will upset vital ocean chemical cycles

A new research has suggested that rising ocean temperatures could hamper natural cycles of carbon dioxide, nitrogen and phosphorous.

Humans played dominant role in ocean warming

Most of the observed global ocean warming over the past 50 years is attributable to human activities, according to a new study.
