The earth's average temperature has risen 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit since 1889 due to human activities. Currently the total Antarctic ice volume, including the land-based ice, is at record low levels and decreasing, resulting in rising ocean levels. Paradoxically, Antarctic Ocean ice area is at a record high level ...
Could towing icebergs to drought-stricken areas of the world work as a stop-gap method of water replacement? .... on the iceberg, he says, otherwise, as the ice is hauled to warmer climates, water pooling at the top of the giant ice mass could penetrate the ice mass, weaken it and cause it to fracture.

The effect of the extra snow locked up in Antarctica is to slightly slow a general trend in global sea-level rise. ... She told BBC News: "Even with these large snowfall events, Antarctica is still losing ice mass at a faster rate than it is gaining mass from snowfall, mainly due to the regions of known ice dynamic ...
Yet data from more than half of unclassified Earth-observing satellites is restricted in some way, rather than shared openly. ... Both lost ice mass more rapidly since 2009. Satellites ... As of 2016, more than 35 nations have been involved in the development or operation of an Earth observation satellite.
The following “cults” have concluded that human activity is the primary source of global warming: The U.S. National Academy of Sciences, American Association for the ... He cites a study showing an increase in ice mass in eastern Antarctica as evidence we need not worry about sea level rise.
“Ice that is taken from the Antarctic continent and melts into the world's oceans, will raise global sea levels. This is not the case for ice that is already ... So technically, one can say that only a shrinking ice volume inside the grounding line will raise sea levels. Retreating grounding lines then mean that the ...

It was discovered in the 1970s that the cycles were highly correlated to changes in the variability of the Earth's orbit – the so-called Milankovich cycles ... Estimates of the drivers of global temperature change in the ice ages show that the changes in greenhouse gases (CO2, methane and nitrous oxide) ...
Remote areas in Canada's Arctic region – once thought to be beyond the reach of human impact – are responding rapidly to warming global temperatures, the University of Toronto's Igor Lehnherr has found. His research, published in Nature Communications, is the first to aggregate and analyze massive ...
The study, published in Nature Communications, is the first to aggregate and analyze massive data sets on Lake Hazen, the world's largest lake by volume located north of the ... "We are now seeing the ice mass declining, which is surprising, because the lake is one of the most northerly of Canadian lakes.
So the proportion of oxygen-18 to oxygen-16 in the ocean reflects the Earth's climate even if we can't see the ice. Earth Scientists recognize this oxygen isotope pattern between glaciated and ice-free climates, referring to it as the “ice volume effect”, and have since used it to reconstruct ancient Earth ...

The high impact of extreme weather on economic development, food security, health and migration was highlighted in the WMO Statement on the State of the Global Climate in 2017. Compiled by the World Meteorological Organization with input from national meteorological services and United Nations ...
The high impact of extreme weather on economic development, food security, health and migration was highlighted in the WMO Statement on the State of the Global Climate in 2017. Compiled by the World Meteorological Organization with input from national meteorological services and United Nations ...
The tallest mountain range in the world — the Himalayas — are part of a region known as the “Third Pole.” These mountains, alongside the Tibetan Plateau and the Hindu Kush Mountains, are home to the largest permanent ice mass outside of the Arctic and Antarctic. But unlike the far north and far south, ...
The change in weather patterns could trigger massive monsoons that will impact food used as part of the global food supply chain, according to ... “We can now compare these changes to other known climate changes such as variation in ice volume, sea level and even the Earth's orbit during the Ice Age.
The Earth is getting warmer, and glaciers around the world are retreating and shrinking. ... The ice mass, which 11,500 years ago covered a large chunk of Switzerland, is a significant tourist attraction; Agence France-Presse reported in 2015 that an "ice grotto" has been carved into the ice every year since ...
The East Asian summer monsoon and desertification in Eurasia is driven by fluctuating Northern Hemisphere ice volume and global sea level during the Ice Age, as shown in a study published in Nature Communications. Today, two thirds of the world's population is dependent on agriculture sustained by ...
Although it could yet prove to be a freak event, the primary concern is that global warming is eroding the polar vortex, the powerful winds that once insulated the frozen north. ... Earth. While average temperatures have increased by about 1C, the warming at the pole – closer to 3C – is melting the ice mass.
While the impacts of sea level rise due to accelerated ice mass loss are widely known and understood, incorporating other effects such as ocean currents, ... However, this new study used data from the global navigation satellite system (GNSS) and interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR), ...
"The Totten is actually one of the most important glaciers in Antarctica, and you might even argue the world, because it drains a region of the Antarctic ice ... Antarctic researchers estimate the glacier itself holds enough ice to raise global ocean levels by around three metres if it were melted in its entirety.
