08.25.09 - Researchers using space-based lasers have created the most comprehensive inventory of lakes that actively drain or fill under Antarctica's ice.
07.07.09 - Arctic sea ice thinned dramatically between the winters of 2004 and 2008, with thin seasonal ice replacing thick older ice as the dominant type for the first time on record.
04.30.09 - A team of scientists embark this week on a two-month expedition to Greenland and Iceland to use a pair of new airborne radars that can help monitor climate change.
04.08.09 - A narrow ice bridge connecting the last remnants of the northern part of Antarctica’s Wilkins Ice Shelf broke apart in early April 2009.
04.06.09 - Polar scientists believe Antarctica's Pine Island Glacier to be thinning because of warm ocean waters below.
04.06.09 - The latest Arctic sea ice data show that the decade-long trend of shrinking sea ice cover is continuing.
03.30.09 - Researchers embark this week on a month-long airborne campaign to measure ice sheet and glacier thickness.
01.21.09 - Once presumed to be cooling or stable, NASA scientists have recently confirmed a warming trend on the Antarctic Peninsula.
11.07.08 - Researchers took advantage of NASA satellite images to show that the microscopic floating plants are teeming in regions of recent ice melt.
10.06.08 - 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.
09.26.08 - NASA data are showing that for a four-week period in August 2008, sea ice melted faster during that period than ever before.
09.16.08 - 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.
07.15.08 - SnoMotes are the first prototype network of their kind envisioned to rove treacherous areas of the Arctic and Antarctic.
03.18.08 - Scientists are monitoring the amount and age of sea ice to see if the declining trend persists.
02.20.08 - 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.
01.23.08 - 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.
