Study finds that oxygen was present in the Earth's atmosphere much earlier than we thought.
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.
It turns out that clouds play a much larger role in the melting of the Greenland ice sheet than previously thought. Scientists have found that compared to clear skies, clouds enhance the meltwater runoff by a third.
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 massive solar storms once battered Earth about 1,000 years ago.
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.
