Glaciers Contributing Same As Ice Sheet Melt To Sea Level Rise

Research has found that approximately 99% of our planet’s land-locked ice is held up in the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets. The remainder, however, is out in the open, located primarily in the glaciers dotted throughout the appropriate latitudes across the planet. And according to new research, those glaciers contributed approximately the same amount of

Himalayan Glaciers Retreating at Accelerated Rate in Some Regions but Not Others

The consequences for the Himalayan water supply depend heavily on the region’s thousands of glaciers, that in the east and central areas of the region are retreating at accelerating rates similar to those seen in other glacier-clusters around the world, but that in the western Himalayas are more stable and could in fact be growing.

Long Lost Photos Reveal Precious Data About Greenland's Glacier History

  Considering that we didn’t start getting satellites up into the atmosphere until the 1970s, it comes as no surprise that recently discovered photographs from the 1930s depicting Greenland’s glaciers are viewed as a precious scientific resource. Rediscovered in a castle just outside of Copenhagen, Denmark, the photographs below spawn from 1930s aerial surveys of

New Study Looks at Glacier Speeds, Rethinks Contribution to Sea Level Rise

Understanding the contribution outlet glaciers have on the global sea level rise is tricky business, and as a new study shows, we are seriously lacking in long-term information. A lack of long-term data often results in faulty assumptions and hypotheses Previous studies looking at the contribution outlet glaciers have on the global sea level rise

Link Found Between Ancient Climate Change and Mass Extinction

New research led by researchers at the California Institute of Technology, Caltech, have discovered new details that support the idea that the mass extinction that took place approximately 450 million years ago, known as the Late Ordovician mass extinction, was linked to a cooling climate. During the Late Ordovician mass extinction more than 75 percent

Then & Now Photos Show Melting of Himalayan Glaciers

Stunning then & now photos of the Himalayan Glaciers show the clear results of climate change in the “Third Pole.” Mountaineer, photographer, and filmmaker, David Breashears, has climbed the Himalayan Mountains 5 times in the last 3 years. Working on a documentary for the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), Breashears climbed the mountains and also brought

Nature Conservancy to Restore Salmon Run Destroyed by Cows

The Nature Conservancy announced this week that they have purchased ranchland in Shasta, California and hope to return Big Springs Creek to its former glory as a major salmon run. [social_buttons] The organization noticed the creek’s consistent, glacier-fed flowing water supply should make it the perfect spawning area for the embattled Pacific salmon, but it
