Scientists say red coloured snow reflects less sunlight and causes ice to melt faster
An uncharted island off Antarctica’s western coast could reveal how climate change is altering the continent.
The submarine robot, Icefin, was dropped in a 700-meter deep ice hole through the efforts of the MELT Project scientists assigned in the Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica.
If planting more trees can replenish forests and remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, then could we also repopulate the Arctic with ice?
A team of researchers from Germany, Austria and Australia has found traces of the radioactive isotope iron-60 — the tell-tale signature of a supernova explosion — within fresh snow in Antarctica.
Giant holes in the Antarctic, called polynyas, have baffled scientists for years. But now with the help of seals and robots, they might have the answers to these mysterious phenomena.
Researchers have proposed a new idea that may explain why some Antarctic icebergs are tinged emerald green rather than the normal blue, potentially solving a decades-long scientific mystery.
As levels of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide rise and warm the globe, Antarctica’s ice will become more vulnerable to cycles on an astronomical scale, particularly the tilt of our planet is as it spins around its axis.
