Lakes on the surface of Antarctica's ice sheets are more widespread than previously thought. Here's why scientists are using satellite data to monitor them.
Both the Arctic spring and the Antarctic autumn are seeing record temperatures. Experts are concerned the conditions causing them may repeat.
Researchers understand ice flow is a key component to sea level rise. A revision to a decades-old equation has changed our understanding about ice flow
Japanese researchers have placed a monitoring device on the heads of Weddell seals to survey the waters in Antarctica, and collect observational data.
From 2019-20, 74,000 people visited Antarctica, the majority by ship. The travel and resulting stay produce black carbon that accelerates climate change.
There are hidden rivers and lakes beneath the ice of Antarctica. Researchers explain why this could be integral to understanding sea level rise.
In a recent study, scientists mapped the speed of glaciers to help them figure out how much water will be available as the glaciers continue to shrink.
The world’s oceans are hotter than ever recorded, and their heat has increased each decade since the 1960s. This severely impacts the world's weather systems.
Non-native species are entering Antarctica's ecosystems by catching rides on ships from 1,500 global ports that come to the region, according to a study.
For 60 years, Antarctica has seen strong global cooperation. But without hitting ambitious targets at COP26, it will significantly disrupt global systems.
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 climate change
