Melting sea ice is affecting the close-knit Arctic climate system in a way that will speed up warming there, scientists say.
New research indicates that melting of the Northern Hemisphere’s biggest ice sheet is being accelerated by the seismic impact of waves crashing against Greenland’s coastline.
A new study shows that up to 30 percent of the melting of the Greenland ice cap results from cloud cover that is helping to raise temperatures -- and accelerate sea level rise.
Global temperatures have risen by 1 degree Celsius (nearly 34 degrees Fahrenheit) in the past 150 years, and one scientist says a doubling of that could unleash catastrophic sea-level rise this century.
New evidence appears that increased melting of sea ice as the Earth warms could weaken the Gulf Stream and reduce temperatures in Western Europe.
A changing climate, rather than natural causes, is the main reason for Alaska’s glacier loss, which is set to speed up, U.S. scientists say.
Not cutting emissions of greenhouse gases could mean driving the planet across systemic boundaries from which there would be no return. Not cutting emissions of greenhouse gases could mean driving the planet across systemic boundaries from which there would be no return.
Ocean scientists find evidence of an increasing slowdown in the Atlantic’s “invisible river” that could seriously affect weather and sea levels in the U.S. and Europe.
Satellite data confirms a global warming link between the melting of icecaps and an accelerating increase in the height of Icelandic hills.
Scientists find evidence of vast “storage tanks” of water deep below the melting Greenland ice sheet that could have a major effect on sea level rise.
