Key projects investigating ice loss in Antarctica are among those at risk as plans for fieldwork are stalled. If the expeditions do not go ahead, it could jeopardise investigations that have gathered data over decades. Medical research, including
The water flow underneath an ice sheet, researchers believe, is responsible for the formation of the channels beneath the floating ice shelf. Reuters The giant ice channels were found by a team of researchers from the British Antarctic Survey in
22 Washington: Researchers have said that warm ocean water, and not warm air, is melting the Pine Island Glacier's floating ice shelf in Antarctica and could be blamed for increased melting of other ice shelves. Sridhar Anandakrishnan, professor of
08 Washington: A new research has showed that an ice sheet located on West Antarctica existed 20 million years earlier than previously thought. The findings indicate that ice sheets first grew on the West Antarctic subcontinent at the start of a
09 Washington: For more than a century scientists have known that Earth's ice ages are caused by the wobbling of the planet's orbit, but a new research has revealed that Antarctic warming began at least two, and perhaps four, millennia earlier than
