Greenland on thin ice?

The ice sheet covering Greenland is four times bigger than California—and holds enough water to raise global sea-level more than twenty feet if most...

Reconstructing Greenland’s climate

Using ice-cores and a new isotopic method that can provide more precise temperature information, Marie Curie Fellow, Takuro Kobashi, has gained an insight into...

Greenland fossils reveal global ecosystem recovery after mass extinction

A paper published in the Nature journal Scientific Reports shows how higher latitude ecosystems recovered after the World's most cataclysmic extinction event 252 million...

Tracking the amount of sea ice from the Greenland ice sheet

By analysing ice cores drilled from deep inside the Greenland ice sheet, researchers have started to calculate how much Arctic sea ice there was...

What’s happening beneath Greenland?

A new study on the Greenland Ice Sheet provides valuable insight on climate change, using unique research methods to establish new estimates of ice...

Greenland ice is melting 7 percent faster than previously thought

The same hotspot in Earth's mantle that feeds Iceland's active volcanoes has been playing a trick on the scientists who are trying to measure...

A history of snowfall on Greenland, hidden in ancient leaf waxes

The history of Greenland's snowfall is chronicled in an unlikely place: the remains of aquatic plants that died long ago, collecting at the bottom...

Scientists track Greenland’s ice melt with seismic waves

Researchers from MIT, Princeton University, and elsewhere have developed a new technique to monitor the seasonal changes in Greenland's ice sheet, using seismic vibrations...
