Future sea level rise poses challenges like human displacement, infrastructure loss, interference with agriculture and coastal habitat degradation.
Research a rapid warming event, where trillions of tonnes of greenhouse gases were released into the atmosphere, highlights what the future could hold.
Global warming is melting sea ice emperor penguin colonies depend on in Antarctica, raising concerns the species will be quasi-extinct by 2100.
The Pine Island Glacier could collapse by the end of the decade, causing significant sea-level rise, research published in Science Advances found.
A new study finds it's critical that countries are proactive in meeting the Paris agreement, to avoid the consequences of excessive global warming.
Between 2000 and 2019, the world’s glaciers lost a total of 267 gigatonnes (294.3 billion tons) of ice per year on average due to climate change.
Jakarta, Shanghai and New Orleans are some of the cities worst affected by sea-level rises. These sinking cities need new solutions to safeguard their future.
A steady stream of revelations about a desolate, forbidding region have helped build a stronger case for doing more to combat climate change.
This visualization shows that the largest countries occupying the Earth's surface are Russia, Canada and China together taking up 7.2% of its overall area.
New predictions by the journal Climate Dynamics have found that sea levels may rise far sooner than expected. The increasing melt is caused by weather extremes not previously accounted for.
A recent study has found that about 60% of the ice shelf area is vulnerable to a process call hydrofracturing, where meltwater seeps into the shelves’ crevasses and triggers collapse.
The rise in temperature across the Arctic Ocean between Canada, Russia, and Europe is faster than climate models have previously predicted.
Current climate models don't account for underwater methane leaks like this one when predicting atmospheric warming.
A study by the British Antarctic Survey has discovered 11 new Emperor Penguin colonies in Antartica, using satellite imagery from the European Space Agency.
As temperatures rise, blooms of snow algae are appearing in the Antarctic. The locations have been mapped for the first time.
