New Weakness in Antarctic Ice Sheet Discovered

New Weakness in Antarctic Ice Sheet Discovered

Antarctica was once home to rain forest The study of sediment cores drilled from the ocean floor revealed fossil pollens that had come from a 'near-tropical' forest.

New research shows algae growing on the Greenland ice sheet the Earths second-largest ice sheet significantly reduce the surface reflectivity of the ice sheets bare ice area and contribute more to its melting than dust or black carbon.

Supraglacial lakes like this one (which is about miles in diameter) dot the surface of the Greenland ice sheet during the summer seasonal melt.

The fill in the blanks game is a great ice breaker game to get everyone involved and participating.

Our party-ice-breaker-games are fun, quick, unique and will get all of your party guests involved and having a fun time.

The age of discovery isn't over yet. A colossal canyon, the longest on Earth, has just been found under Greenland's ice sheet, scientists announced today (Aug. 29) in the journal Science. 3D view of the subglacial canyon, looking northwest from central Greenland.

Greenland's "Grand Canyon" Discovered Under Ice Sheet! A colossal canyon, the longest on Earth, has just been found under Greenland's ice sheet, scientists announced on Thursday, Aug. in the journal Science.

Polar Ice Sheets: Greenland ice sheet melting stages

This July 2012 image provided by Ian Joughin, shows surface melt water rushing along the surface of the Greenland Ice Sheet through a supra-glacial stream channel, southwest of Ilulissat, Greenland.

What's hidden under the Greenland ice sheet?

What's hidden under the Greenland ice sheet?

Greenland is the world largest non-continental island with a territory of 2,130,800 square kilometers. The shores are carved by deep long fjords, reaching the edge of the ice sheet. The glaciation of Greenland's territory began during the anthropogenic period (a geological period that started 2,588 million years ago). Today the ice sheet covers 1,834,000 square kilometers of the island, creating the unique Greenland scenery.

Western Antarctic ice sheet collapse has already begun, scientists warn

Thwaites Glacier is an unusually broad and fast Antarctic glacier flowing into Pine Island Bay, part of the Amundsen Sea, east of Mount Murphy, on the Walgreen Coast of Marie Byrd Land.

This canyon drained a large meltwater lake on the surface of the ice into a moulin, or under-ice channel that flows to the bottom of the ice sheet.
