Volcanoes erupted beneath ice sheet on Mars billions of years ago

Volcanoes erupted beneath ice sheet on Mars billions of years ago

The new findings could help reveal if the Martian environment had flowing water and was once habitable.

Antarctic melt can double sea-level rise

Antarctic melt can double sea-level rise

A new study has revealed that if greenhouse gas emissions continue unabated, a melting Antarctica will bring a massive sea-level rise, pushing it almost 50 feet by 2500.

This is how Greenland's ice sheet looks from 40,000 feet!

This is how Greenland's ice sheet looks from 40,000 feet!

Have you ever wondered of how a glacier looks from above? Well, thanks to a team of Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) field campaign that we get to witness the beautiful image of Greenland's ice sheet taken from 40, 000 feet.

Global warming: West Antarctic ice sheet could melt in next 1,000 years!

Global warming: West Antarctic ice sheet could melt in next 1,000 years!

The Antarctic already today contributes to the annual sea level rise with 0.4 millimetres, as per scientific findings.

Clouds blamed for rapid Greenland ice sheet melt

Clouds blamed for rapid Greenland ice sheet melt

Clouds are raising the temperature of the Greenland ice Sheet and accounting for as much as 30 percent of the ice sheet melt, researchers say.

East Antarctic Ice Sheet has remained frozen for 14 million years

East Antarctic Ice Sheet has remained frozen for 14 million years

 Using an innovative technique to date one of Antarctica's ancient lake deposits, researchers have determined that the East Antarctic Ice Sheet, or EAIS, has remained frozen for the past 14 million years.

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.

Greenland ice sheet not melting as fast as feared

Greenland ice sheet not melting as fast as feared

The new study showed that despite dramatic increase in ice melt across Greenland in recent years, the speed of ice movement in some areas has slowed down rather than accelerated.

Global sea levels could rise by 20 feet due to climate change

Global sea levels could rise by 20 feet due to climate change

Sea levels could rise at least six metres or around 20 feet above current levels if current climate trends continue, says a study analysing three decades of research on the historic effects of melting polar ice sheets.

Dramatic ice sheet collapse triggered global climate change

Dramatic ice sheet collapse triggered global climate change

Scientists from the University of Southampton have found that the climatic events that ended the earlier ice age are surprisingly different to those of the last ice age.

Antarctica's floating ice shelves show massive depletion over two decades

Antarctica's floating ice shelves show massive depletion over two decades

A new study has recently revealed that Antarctic's ice shelves have shrunk by as much as 18 percent in over nearly two decades.

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.

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 Ice Sheet more sensitive to climate change than previously thought

Greenland Ice Sheet more sensitive to climate change than previously thought

A new study has revealed that despite its apparent stability, the massive ice sheet covering most of Greenland is more sensitive to climate change than earlier estimates have suggested.

Refreezing of deep ice sheets creates mysterious blocks in Greenland: Study

A new research has discovered a mysterious blocks of ice as tall as city skyscrapers and as wide as the island of Manhattan at the very bottom of the ice sheet in Greenland.

Antarctic ice sheet collapse has begun, shows research

In an alarming find, scientists have discovered that the collapse of West Antarctic ice sheet - that holds enough water to raise global seas by several feet - has already begun.

Global warming `not fully responsible for Greenland melting`

Researchers have estimated that up to half of the recent warming in Greenland and surrounding areas may be due to climate variations that originate in the tropical Pacific and are not connected with the overall warming of the planet.

East Antarctica is sliding sideways

It`s official! East Antarctica is pushing West Antarctica around.

Ice loss from West Antarctica on the increase

The West Antarctic ice sheet appears to be shedding far more ice than a few years ago, according to climate research unveiled Wednesday.

Antarctica crust similar to South India, Mozambique: Study

The crust of Antarctica is similar to that of South India and Mozambique, which indicates that the three were joined together in the past.
