A major Greenland glacier is melting away with the tide, which could signal faster sea level rise, study finds

Scientists revealed on Monday that a significant glacier in northwest Greenland is interacting with the ocean tides, leading to hitherto unaccounted-for melting and perhaps accelerated sea level rise. The report was released on Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences by a group of glaciologists from the University of California, Irvine and […]

Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets are melting rapidly and driving sea level rise, new satellite data finds

According to recent research, the Earth’s ice sheets have lost enough ice over the past 30 years to form an ice cube 12 miles high. According to a research released on Thursday by a group of international experts, the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, which house almost all of the world’s freshwater ice, are disappearing
