Big Heat Hits Antarctica
A recent report out of West Antarctica is rattling scientists. It’s all about heat, big-time heat, encroaching upon the world’s biggest chunk of ice that locks down a couple hundred feet of sea level rise. This kind of news is enough to raise the hackles of smart well-informed people, as excessive CO...
Ominous News From Deep Beneath Doomsday Glacier
The Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica—the so-called "Doomsday Glacier"—is in the news again. We are fascinated with it because it is the Godzilla of glaciers, 80 miles across and as massive as Florida. If the ice sheet holding it back were to melt, and if Thwaites plopped into the ocean, it would all b...

Severe Weather Europe
At the end of December, sea ice in Antarctica reached its lowest extent on record. Yet, in the long-term Antarctic sea ice still shows an … The post Antarctic Sea ice extent hits a new record low, possibly heading to set the most significant negative anomaly ever observed in the satellite era by autho...

Where Thick Ice Sheets in Antarctica Meet the Ground, Small Changes Could Have Big Consequences
Inside Climate News
Scientists studying the physics and thermodynamics of Antarctica’s ice sheets say they’ve discovered a potential new weak spot that could accelerate melting and sea level rise over the next several hundred years. The international team of researchers modeled how the giant slabs of ice behave where the...
Study: Antarctica’s ‘doomsday glacier’ could retreat faster than expected
