Sea ice coverage is expected to decrease for at least the next 30 years, allowing for a burgeoning shipping industry. But this could spell trouble for sealife.
We're sending 20 of our Young Global Leaders north to see how viewing the shrinking ice sheet will inspire them to rise to the climate crisis.
Greenland's ice sheet is melting six times faster than it was in the 1980s, which could lead sea levels rising dramatically and submerging coastal cities across the world.
The Arctic is rapidly warming and will continue to have massive negative impacts across the globe.
Arctic old ice - the ice that stays throughout the summer - is shrinking rapidly. It plays a vital role in regulating the planet's climate, and its loss would be catastrophic. It's time t...
The effects of climate change on the northern ice sheets will be felt far beyond the region.
New bodies are needed to promote cooperation between Arctic nations and all stakeholders to tackle the region’s unique challenges
As August marks the end of the melt season, Greenland's surface mass budget (SMB) was the sixth highest on record.
As the northern hemisphere's summer comes to an end, we can see the extent to which sea ice has receded.
New research shows that greenhouse gases are bubbling from organic bodies beneath the surface.
A heat wave is bringing unusually hot and dry conditions, fuelling wildfires within the Arctic Circle.
How resilient will the Arctic be to the major geostrategic changes it is already experiencing, or will likely experience in the coming decade? There are reasons to be hopeful, a RAND Corp...
As climate change opens up access to trade routes and resources in the Arctic, it's time to consider whether emerging technology will exacerbate and solve conflict near the North pole
An international team of climate scientists has proposed three multi-billion dollar projects to slow down ice loss from polar glaciers and delay disastrous sea-level rise.
2°C of warming - compared to 1.5°C - greatly increases the risk of ice-free summer by the end of the century.
