In a recent study researchers found that giant icebergs play a major role in removing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere.
Climate change may be altering the Greenland ice sheet in such a way that it's causing it to looks its ability to buffer its contribution to rising sea levels.
Scientists may be getting a better estimate of rising sea levels thanks to a better understanding of the Greenland Ice Sheet.
Greenland's glaciers may be retreating far more quickly than expected.
A new study questions the idea that the 10th-century Norse people were able to colonize Greenland because of a period of unusually warm weather.
A glacier in northeast Greenland is crumbling-and may just raise sea levels because of it.
It turns out that a Greenland glacier may be melting far faster than anyone suspected. New NASA satellite images reveal that the Jakobshavn glacier may have lost a massive chunk of ice, possibly setting a new record.
The Greenland ice sheet is continuing to melt. Now, scientists have found another factor that's contributing; it turns out that the ice sheet melt has accelerated in response to surface rainfall associated with late-summer and autumnal cyclonic weather events.
Scientists have discovered that melting sea ice in the Iceland and Greenland Seas may be altering the circulation of warm and cold water in the Atlantic Ocean which could, in turn, change the climate in Europe.
Each summer, Greenland's ice sheet begins to melt. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at these lakes to see if they could worsen the ice sheet's contribution to sea level rise.
Scientists may have discovered why massive glacial lakes atop the Greenland Ice Sheet drain suddenly. They've found a surprising mechanism that triggers cracks where the water drains.
