Water was subjected to a pressure millions of times higher than at Earth’s sea level.
That’s a lot of water.
Physics, the original troll.
The consequences are important for ecosystem health.
Scientists caution that it’s too early to involve climate change in this instance.
Ice isn’t as boring as you think.
Ice lollipops in clouds sounds just delightful.
When we said ‘Go green,’ this really wasn’t what we had in mind.
Green is not always good.
Emissions work both ways. Well, worked.
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.
Knowing how much water gets melted into the oceans will help us estimate the impact of rising sea levels.
We drink it, we bathe in it, but it’s stranger than you’d think.
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
A massive portion of the Greenland ice sheet has started to melt, taking researchers by surprise. The vast region is experiencing a freakishly early spring thaw, with 12% of Greenland’s ice melting on Monday, according to the Danish Meteorological Institute. “We had to check that our models were still working properly,”6 Peter Langen, climate scientist at DMI, told blog Polar Portal.
Researchers studying the Moon’s ice have found evidence that Earth’s moon wandered off its original axis roughly 3 billion years ago. This would mean that our satellite is in a select group of wanderers, alongside only few other planetary bodies. Planetary scientist Matt Siegler at Southern Methodist University, Dallas, and colleagues were examining NASA data regarding lunar polar hydrogen. The hydrogen was
A new approach to removing ice could make driving during winter less annoying, and flying a lot less dangerous. It relies on a rubbery coating that exploits the mechanics between rigid surfaces, instead of attempting to chemically repel the water in ice like other coatings.
For over a century since it was described, a peculiar type of ice known as hair-ice or ice wool has been puzzling scientists. Now, the mystery seems to have been solved. The uncanny fine hairs of ice, which are only 0.02 mm thick and can grow to 20 cm in length, are actually caused by a fungus.
As the climate changes and temperatures keep growing, you’d assume that polar ice coverage would be shrinking. Not so says a new study by Time that shows how Arctic sea ice volume grew by more than a quarter after the summers of 2013 and 2014.
