The temperature recorded on Seymour Island at the northernmost point of the continent reached 20.75°C on the ninth of February

Glacial rivers ‘could absorb carbon dioxide faster than the Amazon rainforest’

New research suggests rather than all rivers being sources of carbon emissions, some can actually act as carbon sinks

Sea-level rise ‘to affect billion people by 2050’

A new report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change suggests climate change could mean sea levels rise by more than a metre by the end of the century

Scientists commemorate first Icelandic glacier lost to climate change

A bronze plaque, which carries ‘a letter to the future’ says all of Iceland’s glaciers are expected to follow the same path in the next 200 years

Ice melt in the Arctic ‘not main cause of colder winters in Asia and America’

Researchers say fluctuations in atmospheric circulation can cause ice to melt in the Arctic while also making winders in Asia and North America colder

‘More frequent rainfall is speeding up Greenland’s ice-melt’

Scientists believe climate change means rain is falling instead of snow, accelerating the melting of ice formations

Retreating glacier
Melting glaciers ‘uncovering landscapes for first time in 40,000 years’

Oil and gas project makes it nice to work with ice

A collaborative project has successfully developed a range of radar technologies to improve offshore oil and gas operations in harsh, icy environments. The collaboration between Statoil Canada, the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador in Canada and communications developer Rutter has created new remote sensing technology used in the automatic detection and tracking of ice. These […]
