Researchers suggest that the time period of satellite observations of the ice sheets of Greenland and the Antarctic is still too short to be able to predict whether the accelerated loss of ice measured today will persist in the future.
Massive ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland are losing around 300 billion tonnes of ice every year, new research has indicated. These ice sheets contain about 99.5 per cent of the Earth's glacier ice which would raise global sea level by some 63m
Robert Nicholls, Professor of Coastal Engineering at the University of Southampton, says: "Future increases in mass loss from the Greenland and West Antarctic ice sheets are likely to significantly enhance the rate of global sea-level rise, which is
This week, science reporter Jamie Morton explores a range of homegrown research projects. Today's feature looks at the history of the Antarctic ice sheet and its implications for global warming. Herald series: Smart science Kiwis behind the
I am not talking about vaccines and autism, global warming, evolution, or homeopathy these are not actual scientific controversies...I prefer nerdy scientific debates that have insignificant political implications. I like to see two groups of
Rating In Summary The glaciers outside of the Greenland and Antarctic sheets lost an average of roughly 260 billion metric tons of ice annually during the period, leading to a rise in ocean levels of about 0.03 inches (0.7 millimeters) per year.
The unique marine ecosystem of today's Antarctic seas first developed when large ice sheets formed on Antarctica around 34 million years ago, according to new research involving a scientist from the University of Southampton.
Washington The melting of Greenland's glaciers in the summer of 2012 was as extensive as it has been in more than a century, and U.S. scientists now conclude that a very particular type of cloud formation made the difference. Greenland's ice sheet is
Operation IceBridge scientists have begun another season of research activity over Arctic ice sheets and sea ice with the first of a series of science flights from Greenland completed on Wednesday. Wallops Flight Facility in Wallops Island, Va., is
