Greenland’s melting ice sheet could generate more sea level rise than previously thought if greenhouse gas emissions continue to increase and warm the atmosphere at their current rate, according to a new modeling study.
New NASA data show that Jakobshavn Glacier — Greenland's fastest-moving and fastest-thinning glacier for most of the 2000s — grew for a third year in a row. However, it continues to contribute to sea level rise.
More than a trillion new measurements of Earth’s height – blanketing everything from glaciers in Greenland, to mangrove forests in Florida, to sea ice surrounding Antarctica – are now available to the public.
A major ocean current connecting the Pacific and Indian oceans slows dramatically during northwest Asia Monsoon season. Now, scientists have figured out why.
