The ice sheets and glaciers that extend over roughly 11% of the Earth's land mass are home to a surprisingly abundant source of life. Sections of liquid water beneath and inside the ice provide a habitat for a genetically ...
It's a truism that mathematical relationships are present nearly everywhere in nature, probably more than we realise. The latest place they have turned up is on the underside of glaciers.
Climate change is causing more than just warmer oceans and erratic weather. According to scientists, it also has the capacity to alter the shape of the planet.
A custom-built Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) has helped Scottish-based scientists survey one of the world's most dangerous terrains as they seek to discover causes of ice loss in the Arctic.
From afar, the Rhone glacier looks pristine, but on closer inspection the surface is covered with white blankets to slow the melting of the rapidly retreating ice.
When it comes to coping with climate change in the Arctic region, which is warming at three times the global average, some animals are more equal than others.
