Ancient meltwater channels entombed under the North Sea could help scientists understand modern climate change.
Climate change may be contributing to the penguin population crash at Halley Bay which is “unprecedented in the historical record.”
Ice shelves are floating buttresses to glaciers on the mainland.
Climate scientists distinguish rock from clouds, snow, and ice in satellite images to bring a more precise measurement of Antarctica’s rocky outcrop.
The British Antarctic Survey’s research base risks being cut off on an iceberg if it doesn’t move.
Scientists at NASA say the massive Larsen B Ice Shelf could completely disappear by the end of the decade, while British researchers say its even larger neighbor, Larsen C, is melting at an alarming rate.
For the past decade, scientists have debated whether a massive Antarctic ice shelf is thinning from warmer air above or warmer oceans below.
Researchers are braving the Antarctic winter to simulate what it'll be like to travel to other planets.
From April to August, life in Antarctica is isolated, brutally cold, and physically taxing—but some return year after year for the thrill of living there.
