Scientists raise concerns regarding erroneous reporting of Greenland ice cover
Scientists from the Scott Polar Research Institute (SPRI) have raised concerns regarding what they believe are erroneous claims of a 15% decrease in the permanent ice cover of Greenland in just 12 years.
800,000 years of Greenland's abrupt climate variability
An international team of scientists, led by Dr Stephen Barker of Cardiff University, has produced a prediction of what climate records from Greenland might look like over the last 800,000 years.
Pics of Greenland glacier melt shocks expert
Breathtaking before-and-after pictures showing how fast a Greenland ice sheet has melted in just two years have shocked a climate change expert familiar with the glacier.
Sea level rise less from Greenland, more from Antarctica, than expected during last interglacial
During the last prolonged warm spell on Earth, the oceans were at least four meters and possibly as much as 6.5 meters, or about 20 feet higher than they are now.
Warming ocean layers will undermine polar ice sheets
Warming of the ocean's subsurface layers will melt underwater portions of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets faster than previously thought, according to new University of Arizona-led research. Such melting ...
Climate change disasters could be predicted
Climate change disasters, such as the melting of the Greenland ice sheet, dieback of the Amazon rainforest or collapse of the Atlantic overturning circulation, could be predicted according to University of Exeter research.
Meltzone 2011: CCNY expedition to track life and death of supraglacial lake
How do you observe signs of climate change in real time? Dr. Marco Tedesco, associate professor of earth and atmospheric sciences at The City College of New York, plans to be the first to catch sight of one dramatic indicator ...
Climate played big role in Vikings' disappearance from Greenland
The end of the Norse settlements on Greenland likely will remain shrouded in mystery. While there is scant written evidence of the colony's demise in the 14th and early 15th centuries, archaeological remains ...
Two Greenland glaciers lose enough ice to fill Lake Erie
A new study aimed at refining the way scientists measure ice loss in Greenland is providing a "high-definition picture" of climate-caused changes on the island.
Canada's Arctic glaciers, ice caps losing water at an alarming rate
(PhysOrg.com) -- The work of Faculty of Science PhD graduate Alex Gardner -- published in Nature magazine in April -- has revealed some alarming evidence that Canada's Arctic glaciers and ice caps have lost n ...
Report sees sharper sea rise from Arctic melt (Update)
(AP) -- The ice of Greenland and the rest of the Arctic is melting faster than expected and could help raise global sea levels by as much as 5 feet this century, dramatically higher than earlier projections, ...
Greenland's glaciers double in speed
The contribution of Greenland to global sea level change and the mapping of previously unknown basins and mountains beneath the Antarctic Ice Sheet are highlighted in a new film released by Cambridge ...
'Hidden plumbing' helps slow Greenland ice flow
Hotter summers may not be as catastrophic for the Greenland ice sheet as previously feared and may actually slow down the flow of glaciers, according to new research.
New melt record for Greenland ice sheet (w/ Video)
New research shows that 2010 set new records for the melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet, expected to be a major contributor to projected sea level rises in coming decades.
