The amount of sea ice at the Earth's poles fell to a record low for January, while the planet's temperatures last month were the third highest in modern times, US government scientists said Thursday.
Researchers have completed the first flights of a NASA-led field campaign that is targeting one of the biggest gaps in scientists' understanding of Earth's water resources: snow.
After long-awaited snowfall in January, parts of the Alps are now covered with fresh powder and happy skiers. But the Swiss side of the iconic mountain range had the driest December since record-keeping began over 150 years ...
A new NOAA-sponsored report shows that unprecedented warming air temperature in 2016 over the Arctic contributed to a record-breaking delay in the fall sea ice freeze-up, leading to extensive melting of Greenland ice sheet ...
Researchers with The University of Texas at Austin have found that incorporating snow data collected from space into computer climate models can significantly improve seasonal temperature predictions.
EPFL scientists measured for the first time – at centimeter resolutions – how the snowscape of Antarctic ice in the sea changed, before and after a blizzard. This data will help build better weather models for the South ...
Sentinel-2A captured this image of Mount St Helens in the US state of Washington on 8 February.
Rapid warming in northern mountain environments is resulting in both reduced snow cover and expanding shrub growth—but there's a bright side to all this, according to new research from the University of Alberta.
Declining snowfall in Vermont, a likely byproduct of a warming climate, is sure to negatively affect the state's $600 million snowmobile industry. New research provides a sobering look at just how much.
If there is an animal emblematic of the northern winter, it is the snowshoe hare.
