Deception is the premier tourist destination in the Antarctic. It's also the volcano that scientists are still not sure why it's there.
It is a testament to the political spin machine that an issue like climate change can be so polarizing.
Over a century ago, legendary British explorer Captain Robert Scott and his polar party journeyed to the South Pole to investigate the wildlife of this poo
Lead pollution from Australia reached Antarctica in 1889 - long before the frozen continent's golden age of exploration - and has remained there ever since, new research shows. In our study, published
The amount of the earth's ocean surface covered by sea ice has been continually observed by satellites and its extent estimated since 1978. The trend has been for shrinking sea ice in the Arctic and, more
Over recent decades, scientists have watched the Arctic and Antarctic polar regions respond in starkly different and perhaps surprising ways to the effects of increasing human influence on the Earth's
New model explains climate change contradiction
New studies in Science and Geophysical Research Letters (GRL) find that glaciers in the Amundsen Sea region of the great Antarctic ice sheet have begun the process of irreversible collapse. That by itself would raise sea levels 4 feet in the coming centuries.
According to two new studies, the collapse of much of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet may now be irreversible. That could ultimately mean 10 feet of sea level rise.
The depletion of large parts of the ice sheet in West Antarctica is almost certainly unstoppable, with global warming accelerating the disintegration, two groups of scientists reported Monday.
Parts of the vast ice sheet of East Antarctica - which collectively holds enough water to raise global sea levels by 53 metres - could begin an irreversible slide into the sea this century, causing an unstoppable process of global coastal destruction, scientists have warned.
Studio dei climatologi: se innescato, il fenomeno sarebbe inarrestabile. E' come bottiglia senza tappo.
Russia blocked proposals from America, New Zealand, and others to protect more than 1.5 million square miles of Antarctic ocean areas from fishing.
Check out the most detailed map of a continent never truly seen by human eyes: the de-iced surface of Antarctica.
Glaciers contain a tiny share of the world's land ice, but their rapid melting is contributing to nearly one-third of the world's sea-level rise.
Don't worry, it's just ketchup. No, wait, it's just runoff from a hidden lake.
Researchers find that most continental climates cooled ahead of recent warming.
Sea level rise from melting ice in Greenland, Antarctica probably less than expected say scientists
Two papers released last week in the journal Nature Geoscience provide evidence that warming and melt in West Antarctica are occurring at levels that are highly unusual compared to natural variability
