Global warming cuts off an iceberg due to the rising temperature of its surroundings.
An immense iceberg settled at the coast of Antarctica six years ago, and may be impacting Adelie penguins.
Study finds that 150,000 Antarctica penguins die following iceberg grounding.
The release of fresh water from melting Greenland ice sheets could interrupt the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC), which is an important global ocean circulation element, according to a new study.
The 2015 Antarctic maximum sea ice extent has broken its streak of record highs. The sea ice cover of the Southern Ocean reached its yearly maximum extent on Oct. 6.
A grounded, giant iceberg in Antarctica may have provided scientists with a real-life experiment that reveals the vulnerability of marine ecosystems to sudden changes in sea-ice cover.
Scientists have discovered scours left behind by massive icebergs at a depth of an impressive 1,200 meters, revealing a bit more about the dynamics of the Ice Age and the extent of the Arctic ice sheet thousands of years ago.
In early November, a massive iceberg separated from Antarctica's Pine Island Glacier. Now, NASA has revealed new images of this veritable ice island, now named B31, which will likely continue its trek across the Southern Ocean.
