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.

Glaciers worldwide aren't aging well. Watch some of the most famous ones fade before your eyes in this fascinating (and scary) interactive feature.
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.
