The 330-foot-long structure was created with boulders from a river over a mile away.
A draws on the expertise of 15 researchers from different disciplines to predict what a warming world will mean for the Earth's polar regions.
A fracture allowed the surface water to be transported to the land beneath the Arctic ice.
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.
The Pliocene, 3 million years ago, was the last time atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations were above 400 parts per million.
This is the first time researchers have attempted to map out the number of lakes lying on the surface of the ice sheet during peak melt season.
If the primarily wealthy, white activists gathering in New York really want to fight the climate crisis, they should hear what we have to say.
Thwaites Glacier—which is about the same size as Florida—contains enough ice on its own to raise global sea levels by about two feet if it all melts.
The "equatorial cold tongue" extends from Peru far into the western Pacific, across around a quarter of the Earth's circumference.
Researchers ran hundreds of simulations for different climate scenarios to see how the ice will respond in the coming centuries.
Nature doesn't do subpoenas: it does tornadoes, floods, wildfires and droughts. No leader can stonewall it.
Scientists propose radical geoengineering plan to slow down the collapse of ice sheets.
"We don't test the hull of a ship by ramming progressively larger icebergs until we find one that will break it."
More than 600 million people live in low-elevation coastal areas, less than 30 feet above sea level.
Knowing how much ice Antarctica is losing is critical to understanding how climate change will affect humanity both now and in the future.
Southern California's marsh habitat will be devastated even under a low sea level rise scenario.
Beneath the cavernous ice holds critical data.
This heat source is found all over the planet and is extremely difficult to measure.
Understanding ice shelves is key to projecting sea level rise.
Sea levels rose six times faster than the global average between 2011 and 2015 in the "hot spot."
The worst scenario would flood lands that are home to 236 million people.
Even sites that won't be submerged could be damaged from rapid development.
The sea will remove today's islands, just as it has washed away countless others before.
Scientists recently discovered almost 100 'new' volcanoes under the ice.
The soon-to-be iceberg is moving faster than ever. It's a matter of "hours, days or weeks."
The acceleration is driven by expansion of water and melting ice sheets.
Louisiana is rapidly losing land to rising sea levels, forcing many families to move or rebuild.
