Early noctilucent ice clouds formed over Antarctica WashingtonD.C [US], Dec. 3 : The sky over Antarctica is glowing electric blue due to the start of noctilucent, or night-shining, cloud season in the Southern Hemisphere, shows data from NASA's Aeronomy of Ice in the Mesosphere (AIM).
Climate change may shrink Adelie Penguin range by end of century California, July 9 : Climate has influenced the distribution patterns of Adelie penguins across Antarctica for millions of years. The geologic record tells us that as glaciers expanded and covered Adelie breeding habitats with ice, penguins in the region abandoned their colonies.
Study helps explain sea ice differences at Earth's poles California, May 21 : Why has the sea ice cover surrounding Antarctica been increasing slightly, in sharp contrast to the drastic loss of sea ice occurring in the Arctic Ocean? A new NASA-led study finds the geology of Antarctica and the Southern Ocean are responsible.
Antarctic melt can double sea-level rise Washington D.C, Mar 31 : A new study has revealed that if greenhouse gas emissions continue unabated, a melting Antarctica will bring a massive sea-level rise, pushing it almost 50 feet by 2500.
NASA takes part in Airborne Study of Southern Ocean California, Jan 27 : A team of scientists has launched a series of research flights over the remote seas surrounding Antarctica in an effort to better understand how much carbon dioxide the icy waters are able to lock away.
NASA sees 1 metre sea level rise ahead Melbourne, Sept 7 : NASA has recently revealed that sea levels will rise by a metre over the next 100 to 200 years as satellite images show large sections of Greenland and Antarctica are vanishing at a much faster rate than previously thought.
Saltwater discovered in inhospitable Antarctic region hints at ... Washington, Apr.29 : Researchers have recently found evidence of salty groundwater in Antarctica's Dry Valleys, which provided strong support for the idea that Mars, an environment that resembles Antarctic, may have similar aquifers beneath its surface that could support microscopic life.
