NASA flies to Antarctica for largest airborne polar ice survey

NASA flies to Antarctica for largest airborne polar ice survey

NASA begins a series of flights Oct. 15 to study changes to Antarctica’s sea ice, glaciers and ice sheets. The flights are part of Operation Ice Bridge, a six-year campaign that is the largest airborne survey ever made of ice at Earth’s polar regions. Researchers will work from NASA’s DC-8, an airborne laboratory equipped with […]

Tropical regions to be hardest hit by fisheries shifts caused by climate change

Tropical regions to be hardest hit by fisheries shifts caused by climate change

Major shifts in fisheries distribution due to climate change will affect food security in tropical regions most adversely, according to a study led by the Sea Around Us Project at The University of British Columbia. In the first major study to examine the effects of climate change on ocean fisheries, a team of researchers from […]

Ancient Glaciers Are Disappearing Faster Than Ever

Ancient Glaciers Are Disappearing Faster Than Ever

Melting ice is pouring off Greenland and Antarctica into the sea far faster than was previously realised because of global warming, new scientific research reveals today. The accelerating loss from the world’s two great land-based ice sheets means a rise in sea levels is likely to happen even more quickly than UN scientists suggested only […]

Greenland Icesheet Could Melt Faster Than Thought: Study

Greenland Icesheet Could Melt Faster Than Thought: Study

PARIS (AFP) – The Greenland icesheet responded to global warming over the past 10,000 years more quickly than thought, according to a study released Wednesday. As a result, a medium-sized temperature increase this century could cause the continent-sized ice block to start melting at an alarming rate, it suggests. “It is entirely possible that a […]

Greenland’s Melt Mystery Unfolds, At Glacial Pace

Greenland’s Melt Mystery Unfolds, At Glacial Pace

HELHEIM GLACIER, Greenland — Suddenly and without warning, the gigantic river of ice sped up, causing it to spit icebergs ever faster into the ocean off southeastern Greenland. Helheim Glacier nearly doubled its speed in just a few years, flowing through a rift in the barren coastal mountains at a stunning 100 feet (30 meters) […]
