Protecting Ice Memory

July 21, 2016 — The project’s first mission to protect the world’s ice memory will be launched in France on 15 August, in the Mont Blanc massif. Researchers from the CNRS, the IRD and the Université Grenoble ... read more

July 4, 2016 — The recent trend of increasing Antarctic sea ice extent -- seemingly at odds with climate model projections -- can largely be explained by a natural climate fluctuation, according to a new ... read more

Understanding Ice Loss in Earth’s Coldest Regions

June 30, 2016 — Scientists found that melt on the surface of glaciers in the McMurdo Dry Valley is rare, but internal melting is ... read more

June 29, 2016 — Antarctic sea ice production spanning more than 20 years has been understood through the analysis of satellite observations using specially developed techniques. The results of this analysis revealed ... read more

June 22, 2016 — The role of red pigmented snow algae in melting Arctic glaciers has been strongly underestimated, suggests a study. The new work shows a 13 percent reduction of the albedo over the course of one ... read more

June 21, 2016 — Even with this winter's strong El Niño, the Sierra Nevada snowpack will likely take until 2019 to return to pre-drought levels, according to a new ... read more

June 16, 2016 — Permafrost below shallow Arctic lakes is thawing as a result of changing winter climate, new research shows. These rates of warming are similar to those observed in terrestrial permafrost, yet those ... read more

Huge Ancient River Basin Explains Location of the World's Fastest Flowing Glacier

June 14, 2016 — An ancient basin hidden beneath the Greenland ice sheet may help explain the location, size and velocity of Greenland's fastest flowing outlet glacier. The research also provides an insight into ... read more

June 13, 2016 — Remote lakes in a perpetually ice-free area of Antarctica show not only the chemical signature of ancient wildfires, but also some much more recent evidence of fossil-fuel combustion, according to ... read more

June 13, 2016 — Researchers have provided a unique glimpse into one of the least understood environments on Earth by revealing for the first time former subglacial lakes and their drainage routes beneath the North ... read more

June 9, 2016 — Following record-high temperatures and melting records that affected northwest Greenland in summer 2015, a new study provides the first evidence linking melting in Greenland to the anticipated ... read more

June 1, 2016 — Part of Antarctica's coastline has been losing ice to the ocean for far longer than had been expected by scientists, a study of satellite pictures has ... read more

Global Warming: Spring Snow a No-Go?

May 26, 2016 — Spring snowpack, relied on by ski resorts and water managers throughout the Western United States, may be more vulnerable to a warming climate in coming decades, according to a new ... read more

May 23, 2016 — The history of Greenland's snowfall is chronicled in an unlikely place: the remains of aquatic plants that died long ago, collecting at the bottom of lakes in horizontal layers that document the ... read more

May 19, 2016 — Water management in reservoirs could substantially mitigate future summer water shortages, expected as a consequence of ongoing glacier retreat, researchers report. The team simulated the effect of ... read more

May 19, 2016 — Heavier snow over Antarctica was supposed to be one of the few brakes on sea-level rise in a warming world. But that prediction is not reliable, says a new study of Antarctic snowfall over the past ... read more

May 18, 2016 — Current rates of climate change could trigger instability in a major Antarctic glacier, ultimately leading to more than 2m of sea-level ... read more

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
