Scientists have created a new map of the world's seafloor, showing an unprecedented level of detail when it comes to the mountains and trenches that rise and sink beneath the waves.
Things are more complicated in Greenland than we once thought. Scientists that are drilling and measuring the melt rates and ice sheet movement in Greenland have found that channels beneath the ice could make simplistic models inaccurate.
Scientists have found that current changes in the ocean around Antarctica are disturbingly similar to conditions that occurred 14,000 years ago and resulted in an abrupt 3 to 4 meter rise in the global sea level.
Most pet owners realize that different dogs and cats have different personalities. But did you know that sharks also vary when it comes to social interactions?
Charles Darwin once hypothesized that species could cross oceans by hitchhiking on rafts made out of vegetation, icebergs, and even flying in the plumage of birds. Now, scientists have found new evidence supporting this "jump dispersal" idea.
It's a matter of hiding in plain sight for a newly discovered species of ant. These insects are able to infiltrate the nests of other species and gain access to their food sources by "disguising" themselves by using a few unique techniques.
Scientists have taken a closer look at the genes that underlie the monarch's famous traits in an effort to better understand the insect with one of the largest migrations in the world.
Are you giving your pets food that's safe to eat? A new study may prove that there have been more than a few instances of pet food mislabeling. It turns out that out of 52 products, 20 were potentially mislabeled.
It turns out that Earth's gravity may have experienced some changes in the past few years--and it can be blamed on melting ice. ESA's GOCE satellite has shown that ice lost from West Antarctica has caused our planet's gravity to shift slightly.
For the first time in modern history, the eastern basin of the South Aral Sea has completely dried.
While we all know that birds evolved from a branch of dinosaurs, exactly how they accomplished this feat has long puzzled evolutionary biologists. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at how dinosaur arms evolved into wings over time.
