No one touched it for more than a century, not even the penguins.
Exciting but scary news at the same time.
When we said ‘Go green,’ this really wasn’t what we had in mind.
As is often the case, more questions arose after the mystery was solved.
This could have been going for decades but scientists are worried nevertheless.
Gentoo penguins are prolific poopers, much to the delight of some scientists.
An effect of warming climate, or just a string of coincidences?
Next time you go to Antarctica, pack your shorts.
It looks like we’re moving closer to a dramatic break-up.
As the Antarctic spring comes to an end and the “summer” enters into force, a team of geoscientists is seeking 1.5-million-year ice.
The ice shelf is far more fragile than we hoped.
A great victory for wildlife.
A long-standing assumption that as the planet warms, the biosphere releases more CO2 in a positive feedback loop was confirmed by researchers.
Antartica’s penguins are in trouble.
In the past decade, ice extent at the two poles couldn’t be more different. The Arctic has seen its 13 smallest maximum ice extents in the last 13 years, and since 1979 lost 620,000 square miles of winter sea ice cover, an area more than twice the size of Texas. Meanwhile, in Antarctica, ice cover has actually increased despite warming trends
Antarctic researchers are in need of help – specifically, they need people to study photos of penguins to help them understand how the birds are dealing with climate change.
A refined model based on equations which accurately reproduced sea level rise events from hundreds of thousands of years ago suggests this massive ice sheet is disintegrating faster then previously thought.
While the climate talks in Paris are carrying on in full force, it’s important to keep in mind that most of climate change isn’t actually affecting the ones causing it. The polar regions, the south Pacific and small islands are the ones suffering the most. The governments of Nunavut (Canada) and Greenland (Denmark) and the Inuit Circumpolar Council (ICC) released a
n 1911, Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen reached the South Pole, followed by Scott who died on the return journey. Shackleton searched in his mind for some other daring goal. He finally settled on crossing of the Antarctic continent from coast to coast via the South Pole, a distance of about 1800 miles.
