Canadian Arctic glacial melt: Landscapes revealed for 40,000 years

And one big takeaway is this: The Arctic might have been its warmest century at least. "It's not just a fluke," University of Colorado Boulder doctoral researcher Simon Pendleton, lead author of the study, told CNN. "These ancient landscapes are being covered in a broad geographic region of Baffin Island." 48 mosses and lichens – still rooted in the spots …

Arctic glacial meltings have been revealing hidden land for more than 40,000 years

Melting ice exposes hidden landscapes in the Canadian Arctic that have not been seen for more than 40,000 years, as new research published in Nature Communications shows. Unsurprisingly, the study indicates that climate change is the driving force behind this record-breaking glacier retreat. As Arctic temperatures increase with increasing speed thanks to strong positive feedback loops in the polar regions, …

Enormous impact crater in Greenland discovered under glacial ice

Asteroid impacts have shaken the earth during its 4.5-billion-year history, and some have been responsible for global extinction, such as the demise of the dinosaurs some 66 million years ago. But the planet carries the scars of just a few hundred of these impacts due to weathering processes such as erosion. Researchers have now discovered an enormous impact crater with …

NASA's IceBridge mission shares a new photo of Giant Glacial Valleys

With NASA known for being right to research, it's easy to forget that the agency is also focusing on our home planet. That's why they lead missions like IceBridge, as NASA describes the "largest aerial photo of the polar ice on Earth that has ever flown," as they take a close look at the Arctic and Antarctic locations. The research …

The recent decline in glacial losses in the Arctic is twice as high as in the previous 60 years

On the Hall Island, Franz Josef Land, a Landsat 7 image, from July 17, 2002 shows a strong ice cover on land and in the surrounding sea. The Landsat 8 image, mid-September 23, 2013 reveals far less ice cover, while the Landsat 8 image right on September 12, 2016 shows significantly lower glacier coverage.
