Those mysterious blinding-white landscapes, the ethereal silence, the pristine nature relatively untouched by us – humans!
Chinese scientists have begun preliminary research on a next-generation icebreaker capable of lengthy research missions in the Arctic and Antarctica, according to the programme’s chief designer.
Global sea levels could rise by more than double the current best estimate, according to a new analysis of climate change in Antarctica.
Scientists say the contribution of a melting Antarctica to sea-level rise this century will be significant and challenging, but that some nightmare scenarios are just not realistic.
Buried deep in the Antarctic ice, an observatory has spotted ghostly, nearly massless particles coming from inside the galaxy and points beyond the Milky Way.
Sea levels could rise by at least six metres (20 feet) in the long term, swamping coasts from Florida to Bangladesh, even if governments achieve their goals for curbing global warming, according to a study.
NASA scientists says the remnants of the Larsen B ice shelf, much of which already disintegrated back in 2002 will completely collapse by 2020, reports The Washington Post
