See how global warming is turning Antarctica green.
Scientists believe that with the East Antarctic sheet remaining frozen for 14 million years, climate change may not cause such a cataclysm as thought.
The team researching the East Antarctic Ice Sheet (EAIS) studied different elevations and concluded that the the speedy thinning of the glacier happened in the recent geological past and has continued for many centuries
As the global warming increases, technically the ice must decrease. However, in Antarctica, the changing weather patterns are resulting in more ice levels, even though in Arctic, the ice seems to be melting
Antarctica is the coldest place on Earth which contains abundance of microscopic life. Now researchers have found a rich microbial ecosystem, persisting underneath the thick ice sheet, where sunlight hasn't been felt for million years.
Sea levels may rise much faster than previously predicted because climate models have failed to account for the disruptive effects strong westerly winds, a new study has found.
Generally we know Antarctica as a land of ice. But dive below the West Antarctic Ice Sheet and waiting will be subglacial volcanoes.
A slow motioned and irreversible collapse of a massive cluster of glaciers in Antarctica has begun, according to two new studies. The collapse could cause sea levels to rise across the planet by 4 feet in the next 200 years.
Researchers have recently discovered a kind of moss in Antarctica that can survive after being trapped under ice for over 1,500 years.
NASA scientists have discovered a new evidence of past water movement in a Martian meteorite that fell in Antarctica around 50,000 years ago. The new study is focused on structures deep within a 13.7 kilogram meteorite being called as Yamato 000593 (Y000593).
The Chinese icebreaker ship that went to rescue a stuck Russian ship in Antarctica has now itself become trapped.
Through remote satellite measurements, scientists recently recorded temperature of 135.8 degrees below zero in Antarctica. It is the lowest temperature ever recorded on earth.
Antarctica's summer ice melt is at its highest level in 1,000 years, according to Australian and British researchers.
