Ice-Mass Loss of Antarctica Visualized

May 9, 2016 — The Antarctic ice sheet, with a thickness of up to 4800 meter, has lost mass in the recent years. This was confirmed by a variety of scientific studies. Scientists now visualize the ice-mass loss: ... read more

Scientists Track Greenland's Ice Melt With Seismic Waves

May 6, 2016 — Researchers have developed a new technique to monitor the seasonal changes in Greenland's ice sheet, using seismic vibrations generated by crashing ocean waves. The results may help scientists ... read more

Apr. 29, 2016 — Although the coastal regions of the Greenland Ice Sheet are experiencing rapid melting, a significant portion of the interior of that ice sheet has remained stable -- but a new study suggests that ... read more

Apr. 28, 2016 — Surface meltwater draining through and underneath Greenland's tidewater glaciers is accelerating their loss of ice mass, according to a new study that sheds light on the relationship between ... read more
