The question of why sea ice melts rapidly after strong storms in the Arctic Ocean has now been answered by a research icebreaker that was involuntarily trapped in the ice.
If rising temperatures drive animal species out of their natural habitats, pizzly bears are likely to become more common.
A team of MIT engineers has developed a navigation method for autonomous vehicles that allows them to navigate accurately in the Arctic Ocean without GPS.
Rapid climate change is apparently having an effect on the tilt of the Earth’s axis, a new study by Chinese researchers shows.
The record melt of the Greenland ice sheet in 2012 continues to have an impact on the stability of the ice sheet today.
For the first time, an underwater robot has been used to collect data under the Thwaites Glacier in West Antarctica, with surprising findings.
Rainfall could increase in amount, frequency and intensity over the next 80 years along the coast of Antarctica, a new study predicts.
A new study by a researcher has found that thawing permafrost in Alaska is causing colder water in smaller rivers and streams.
Loss of Arctic sea ice is likely responsible for chaotic spring snowfall conditions in Europe
The book “Meine Welt schmilzt” by Line Nagell Ylvisäker vividly describes the effects of climate change and has also touched guest author Stefan Leimer.
The Pine Island glacier in West Antarctica may soon have reached its tipping point, leading to the unstoppable flow of ice.
The amount of mercury in narwhals’ tusks has increased significantly due to climate change, a new study shows.
On March 21, 2021, Arctic sea ice likely reached its maximum extent for the winter of 2020/21 at 5.71 million square miles.
A new phenomenon could spread across the skies of the Arctic in the future. Lightnings are relatively rare in the Arctic, but they have tripled in the last decade.
A huge iceberg broke off from the Antarctic ice sheet about two weeks ago. Photographs taken from the seafloor show an astonishing diversity of life.
A collapse of the Earth’s magnetic field, caused by the reversal of the magnetic poles, caused mass extinctions and climate changes 42,000 years ago.
A weakening of the Arctic polar vortex has caused weather turbulence in the northern hemisphere since the beginning of the year.
Globally, ice loss has been accelerating since the 1990s, and more than half of it has occurred in the northern hemisphere.
Recent satellite photos give reason for the formation of an iceberg the size of New York. The ‘calving’ of the iceberg seems inevitable. The only question is: when?
Iceberg A68 drifted close to the island of South Georgia and supposedly threatended the local wildlife. Latest satellite images show that the giant disintegrated into unproblematic fragments.
The self-propelled polar platform “Severny Polyus” was launched in St. Petersburg on Friday, December 18, 2020.
In January 2021, a research mission will be launched to determine the impact of the giant A-68a iceberg on the island of South Georgia, one of the world’s most important ecosystems.
A new 21-year series of satellite imagery data shows the progression of permafrost retreat and points to climate change as the cause.
The Greenland ice sheet will melt about 60 percent more by 2100, causing sea levels to rise more sharply.
