Australia could avoid punishingly long heatwaves and boost the Great Barrier Reef's chances of survival by helping to limit global warming to 1.5℃ rather than 2℃, according to a report released by the Climate Institute ...
Scientists and games developers have joined forces to help communicate the impact of climate change on the Antarctic Ice Sheet.
Fresh understanding of West Antarctica has revealed how the region's ice sheet could become unstable in a warming world.
The established theory about the route by which Ice Age peoples first reached the present-day United States has been challenged by an unprecedented study which concludes that their supposed entry route was "biologically unviable".
Conversations with physicist Ralf Jungmann demand a great deal of concentration. He takes one at a sizzling pace through a world that is inconceivably minute, a world which, according to the laws of optics, is not directly ...
Camp Century, a U.S. military base built within the Greenland Ice Sheet in 1959, doubled as a top-secret site for testing the feasibility of deploying nuclear missiles from the Arctic during the Cold War. When the camp was ...
NASA researchers have helped produce the first map showing what parts of the bottom of the massive Greenland Ice Sheet are thawed—key information in better predicting how the ice sheet will react to a warming climate.
Scientists at the University of Bristol have revealed how a tiny Arctic microbe, crucial to shaping the surface of glaciers, survives in such extreme conditions.
US military bases along the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico will be increasingly vulnerable to floods and power-packed storms as the planet warms, researchers said Wednesday.
Graphene oxide has been hailed as a veritable wonder material; when incorporated into nanocellulose foam, the lab-created substance is light, strong and flexible, conducting heat and electricity quickly and efficiently.
