Scientists complete the most detailed mass observation of the southern continent so far, and deliver ominous findings.
The speed at which the warming climate is melting glaciers in Central Asia may ruin the water supply of millions of people within 50 years.
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.
Satellite data raise red flags about the draining of underground aquifers in California and elsewhere to meet the demands of expanding populations.
Scientists warn countries in northern Europe to plan for dramatic new worst-case scenarios as climate change increases the risk of seas sweeping inland.
Massively increased ice melt in the high Himalayas because of climate change could seriously jeopardize the flow of water for billions of people in Asia.
The southern continent’s mysteries start to unfold as scientists use satellite data to measure the extent and pattern of ice loss that threatens to be a “runaway problem."
Scientists call for an international effort to learn why temperatures on some mountains appear to be rising faster than in nearby lowlands.
Natural variability may at the moment be affecting Antarctica’s temperature more than human activity is, but climate change will still be a major influence.
