The massive skull bones and horn plates of muskoxen do not prevent the formation of brain damage after continuous fierce fights
Not a volcanic eruption in Greece, but a much larger eruption in Alaska led to global cooling about 3,600 years ago.
Understanding how ice delays eruptions will advance forecasting

According to experts and authorities, polar bears on and around Svalbard are in good physical condition, but still threatened, coming from other directions.
The two big earthquakes took place along a part of an Alaska fault line that was due for an earthquake
A lake discovered under the East Antarctic Ice Sheet may hold information about its 34-million-year history.
Precipitation played a more important role than temperature in the distribution of dinosaur species in Late Cretaceous Alaska, researchers found.
Scientists have noted the decline of numerous bird populations worldwide in a review study.
Deep beneath the Antarctic ice sheets, much more water may be stored in the ground than previously thought, U.S. researchers suspect.
Nowhere else are reindeer as well-fed as on the Spitsbergen archipelago.
In the coming years, Australia aims to clear its Antarctic stations of legacy waste and remediate contaminated soil.
The collapse of the Conger Ice Shelf in March this year exposed a small island that may be all ice.
Authorities from the U.S. and Australia report another “birth” of a more than 400-square-kilometer iceberg there, where an ice shelf first broke apart in March.
The trigger of the collapse of the two smaller parts A and B of the Larsen Ice Shelf was, according to the latest findings, warm and humid air currents.
Where there is still sufficient sea ice along the Antarctic Peninsula, Adélie penguin populations are also stable. Where it is now too warm, unfortunately not.
Two Swiss scientists are addressing the question by studying Antarctic fish and invertebrates for microplastics.
During the ice ages, it was not iron-rich dust and its fertilizing effect that provided CO2 storage in the Antarctic Ocean, but other mechanisms.
The Falkland Islands serve as a breeding ground for hundreds of thousands of penguins, albatrosses and other seabirds, and are now considered a Key Biodiversity Area for seabirds.
First walruses and whales, now Dutch scientists have succeeded in counting Arctic seals on satellite images.
The series of earthquakes that occurred between August 2020 and February 2021 between the South Shetlands and the Antarctic Peninsula has been resolved thanks to new methods.
The largest Arctic fish needs just a handful of food per day to survive.
Walruses were once widespread in the Svalbard archipelago. But 350 years of unchecked hunting pushed them to the brink of extinction. Walruses have been protected since 1952.
