Greenland ice sheet lost more than 8.5bn tons of surface mass in a single day – enough to cover the whole of Florida in two inches of water Data shows Greenland lost 8.5 billion tons of ice just...

The Greenland ice sheet, the planet’s second largest, is close to tipping into ‘accelerated melting’ and could raise sea levels by 23 FEET, scientists conclude It’s unclear at...

Ice algae that grow in extreme environments are darkening the ice sheet in Greenland. Dark colors absorb more heat, which makes ice melt faster, adding to rising sea levels. The increase in algae because...

Plants discovered nearly a MILE beneath the Greenland ice sheet suggest the area was ice-free within the last million years Researchers examined a 15ft core sample first dug by the US Army in the 1960s It...

Vikings left Greenland because they over-hunted walruses Researchers at the University of Cambridge may have found the reason why Vikings left Greenland, walruses. Scientists have found evidence in ancient...

Speed of Greenland ice loss in the 21st century is on track to be faster than in any other century over the past 12,000 years, study warns Scientists’ computer simulations reveal the future of the...

Greenland's ice sheet may have passed a point of no return, setting it on an irreversible path to disappearance, according to researchers at Ohio State University.  Snowfall can no longer replenish...

Greenland lost 600 BILLION tons of ice last summer raising global sea levels by almost 0.1 inches in two months as the Arctic experienced its hottest year on record Ice volume changes were measured by...

Greenland and Antarctica are losing ice SIX TIMES FASTER than in the 1990s with sea levels set to rise 6.6 inches by 2100 — putting 400 million people at flood risk — if global warming goes unchecked Climate...

Steffen Olsen, a researcher at the Danish Meteorological Institute, posted two alarming photos of sled-dogs trekking ankle-deep across melted sea ice in northwestern Greenland this month. The area experienced...

Greenland’s ice is melting six times faster than in the 1980s and its glaciers have caused sea levels to rise by half an inch since 1972, experts say Greenland’s glaciers alone have contributed...

Greenland was WARM in the Viking Age (at least during the summer): Study on ancient bugs preserved in lake sediments suggest Norse settlers enjoyed 50-degree weather New study reconstructed 3,000 years...

Buried beneath a half mile of snow and ice in Greenland, scientists have uncovered an impact crater large enough to swallow the District of Columbia. The finding suggests that a giant iron asteroid smashed...

Satellite image shows the 11 MILLION-ton iceberg floating ‘perilously close’ to a remote village Greenland that has forced dozens to evacuate Huge iceberg has floated dangerously close to...

The moment a FOUR MILE long iceberg breaks off a Greenland glacier Four-mile iceberg began breaking off Greenland’s Helheim Glacier on June 22 Scientists captured calving event in a video that has been...
