Once presumed to be cooling or stable, NASA scientists have recently confirmed a warming trend on the Antarctic Peninsula.
Researchers took advantage of NASA satellite images to show that the microscopic floating plants are teeming in regions of recent ice melt.
NASA study shows that the rising frequency and intensity of arctic storms over the last half century directly accelerated the rate of arctic sea ice drift which is a harbinger of climate change.
NASA data are showing that for a four-week period in August 2008, sea ice melted faster during that period than ever before.
Arctic sea ice coverage appears to have reached its lowest extent for 2008 and the second-lowest amount recorded since the dawn of the satellite era.
SnoMotes are the first prototype network of their kind envisioned to rove treacherous areas of the Arctic and Antarctic.
Scientists are monitoring the amount and age of sea ice to see if the declining trend persists.
A new NASA study confirms that the surface temperature of Greenland's massive ice sheet has been rising, fueling the loss of the island's ice at the surface and throughout the mass beneath.
Ice loss in Antarctica increased by 75 percent in the last 10 years due to a speed-up in the flow of its glaciers and is now nearly as great as that observed in Greenland.
