Photographer Neill Drake has recreated a photo from 1918 to show the melting of the Norwegian Blomstrandbreen Glacier.
Scientists say permafrost below Canada's Beaufort Sea is thawing as a result of glacier retreat from the last ice age.
Global sea levels are estimated to likely rise a minimum of 12 inches above 2000 levels by 2100, according to the NOAA.
An iceberg nearly the size of Rhode Island is blocking researchers from reaching Thwaites Glacier, which is melting at a rapidly increasing rate.
Experts say climate change and a record-breaking hot summer are likely to blame for the disappearance of Lathrop, Oregon's smallest and southernmost glacier.
This week, some of the world's most exciting and remote destinations are available at up to 50 percent off with Hurtigruten Expeditions, the world's leading expedition cruise company.
Two ice quakes strong enough to be measured on seismometers have hit the same region of Alaska this week as the Northwest experiences a record heat wave.
Over the past decade, landslides have been responsible for generating giant waves in Alaska and Greenland.
The 27 January marks the first time the Antarctica mainland was seen with human eyes. Two hundred years later and it approaches a tipping point of irreversible glacial melt.
Researchers find first direct evidence of a "glacial oxygen pump," which they say extended an essential lifeline to the simple life forms that inhabited the Earth at the time.
Floating ice shelves that encircle mainland Antarctica have been thinning in recent years, but the effect this has had on ice loss from the continent's interior has remained unclear.
One of the islands is about the size of 10 football fields.
Professor David Holland of NYU told Newsweek that the melting "could have a major impact on global sea-level rise over this century and beyond if this loss of East Antarctic ice continues at the present rate."
There are about 400 subglacial lakes around the world, but these are the first scientists believe to be salty.
The glaciers have been shrinking since the 1960s.
A new technique compiled hundreds of thousands of images over seven years.
"This is sort of a dark archaeology, where we benefit from climate change that's making this ice melt."
This heat source is found all over the planet and is extremely difficult to measure.
The fates of lava and ice are forever entwined.
The worst scenario would flood lands that are home to 236 million people.
The 700-foot tall, 300-mile-long wall has been protecting the Seven Kingdoms for thousands of years. Would it hold up on Earth?
The glacier has long been receding.
Less extensive glaciers could mean more volcanic activity.
