Warm ocean water causing significant melting of Antarctic glacier

 A team of researchers have discovered a valley underneath East Antarctica's most rapidly-changing glacier that delivers warm water to the base of the ice that is causing significant melting.

Why cold blooded animals grow smaller in warm water?

Ever wondered why cold blooded animals grow bigger in the warm weather on land, but smaller in warm water? The availability of oxygen may hold the key, finds a new study.

Warm ocean water main culprit behind melting ice shelf

Researchers have said that warm ocean water, and not warm air, is melting the Pine Island Glacier`s floating ice shelf in Antarctica and could be blamed for increased melting of other ice shelves.

Soybeans soaked in warm water naturally release key cancer-fighting substance

An Indian origin scientist and his colleagues have said that soybeans soaking in warm water could become a new “green” source for production of a cancer-fighting substance currently manufactured in a complicated and time-consuming industrial process.

Antarctic ice melting from warm water below: Study

Antarctica`s massive ice shelves are shrinking because they are being eaten away from below by warm water, a new study finds. That suggests that future sea levels could rise faster than many scientists have been predicting.
