Scientists say melting of Greenland glaciers worse than thought

The findings showed “the glaciers in Greenland are more sensitive to climate change than previously thought.

Want to live longer? Cut down your sitting time by 71 minutes!

A new study suggests that reducing sitting time at work by 71 minutes per day can have positive effect in the long.

Greenland sees record early melting of ice sheet

"We had to check that our models were still working properly," climate scientist Peter Langen told the agency's Polar Portal website.

Earth's internal heat driving Greenland's ice melt

Earth's internal heat driving Greenland's ice melt

 An international team of geoscientists has found that Greenland sits over an area of abnormally hot mantle material that drives a widespread melting beneath the ice sheet and rapid ice flow over a distance of several hundred kms.

New Delhi: NASA kicks off six months long earth expedition program with its first mission, Ocean Melting Greenland (OMG). NASA scientists will study the repercussions of global sea rise by observing the melting glaciers of Greenland.

Greenland melting linked to shrinking Arctic sea ice

Greenland melting linked to shrinking Arctic sea ice

Both transport a lot of heat, moisture and clouds over the Greenland ice sheet, leading to more melting, the researchers pointed out.

Revealed: Iceberg that sank Titanic was 100,000 years old!

The iceberg that sank the Titanic on April 14, 1912, was estimated to be 400 feet in length and 100 feet above the ocean surface, giving it 1.5m tonnes in estimated size.

Shot in Western Greenland, this documentary won the award for Excellence in Cinematography at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and the Best Documentary from the International Press Association. It has received over 30 awards at various film festivals and still playing in theaters worldwide.

Greenland ice melt putting global ocean circulation at risk

Greenland ice melt putting global ocean circulation at risk

Researchers say it could impact the future climate in places such as portions of Europe and North America.

Climate change altering Greenland ice sheet

Climate change altering Greenland ice sheet

Greenland's ice sheet has traditionally been pictured as a bit of a sponge for glacier meltwater, but new research has found that climate change is changing its structure, thereby reducing its ability to buffer its contribution to rising sea levels.

Arctic air temperatures highest since 1900: Report

The Arctic is heating up, with air temperatures the hottest in 115 years, and the melting ice destroying walrus habitat and forcing some fish northward, a global scientific report said Tuesday.

This fast-melting glacier can change world's coastlines forever

This fast-melting glacier can change world's coastlines forever

By itself, the Zachariae Isstrom glacier holds enough water to trigger a half-meter rise in ocean levels around the world.

Ancient cold period gives new insight into future

Ancient cold period gives new insight into future

A well known period of abrupt climate change 12,000 years ago that occurred rapidly in northern latitudes but much more gradually in equatorial regions holds the key for future climate change, researchers have discovered.

Watch: NASA data reveals seas rising more than predicted

Watch: NASA data reveals seas rising more than predicted

Sea levels worldwide are rising faster than predicted as a result of climate change, according to NASA scientists.

Seas could rise six metres even if governments curb warming: Study

Seas could rise six metres even if governments curb warming: Study

Sea levels could rise by at least six metres (20 feet) in the long term, swamping coasts from Florida to Bangladesh, even if governments achieve their goals for curbing global warming, according to a study published on Thursday.

Melting Greenland's past to provide clues about its future

Melting Greenland's past to provide clues about its future

Providing a vital clue to the future of Greenland, scientists have measured how the island's ice sheet reacted to a warm period 8,000 to 5,000 years ago when the temperatures were two to four degrees Celsius warmer than present.

Oily fish may not prevent heart disease: Study

Often we have heard that eating oily fish is good for the heart. However, researchers have now questioned the validity of oily fish being a part of a heart healthy diet.

Greenland ice formed due to tectonic processes in deep Earth interior

Greenland ice formed due to tectonic processes in deep Earth interior

A new study has shed light on why Greenland is covered in ice and has suggested that the ice on Greenland could only form due to processes in the deep Earth interior.

Greenland may lose ice more rapidly in future than previously thought

Greenland may lose ice more rapidly in future than previously thought

A new study has provided the first comprehensive picture of how Greenland's glaciers have changed over the past decade.
