Sea levels are rising around the world, and the latest satellite data suggests that three feet (one meter) or more is unavoidable in the next 100-200 years, NASA scientists said Wednesday.
Sea level rise is a natural consequence of the warming of our planet.
Satellite images show that the fastest moving glacier in the world shed a chunk of ice measuring around 12.5 sq km this week – one of the most significant calving events on record.
For glaciologist Kelly Brunt, the commute to work can range from driving a few minutes to develop models on a computer to taking long-distance flights to gather data in some of the planet's coldest places.
Albedo modification, an emerging technology with the potential to offset some aspects of climate change, shouldn't be counted on as a short-term solution to stop rising global sea levels, according to a new study from Penn ...
It is only recently that scientists learned of the existence of glacial earthquakes–measurable seismic rumblings produced as massive chunks fall off the fronts of advancing glaciers into the ocean. In Greenland, these quakes ...
A new international study is the first to use a high-resolution, large-scale computer model to estimate how much ice the West Antarctic Ice Sheet could lose over the next couple of centuries, and how much that could add to ...
Do you love to lose yourself in little things? To read every footnote of a book, watch ants in a patch of grass, memorise every mole on a lover's skin?
Fossil fish teeth recovered from the ocean floor around Tasmania have shed new light on the origins of the world's largest ocean current, according to a paper released in Nature this week.
New research confirms that the land under the Chesapeake Bay is sinking rapidly and projects that Washington, D.C., could drop by six or more inches in the next century—adding to the problems of sea-level rise.
