Understanding the future of sea-level rise has been at the forefront of climate scientists’ minds for years now, and new research studying fossilised marine animals found in Antarctica’s seabed sediments … [Read full article]
A team of engineers from the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) will leave next week for Antarctica to begin the first stage of a scientific mission to collect water and sediment samples from Lake Ellsworth, a subglacial lake some three kilometres underneath the solid ice of Antarctica.
In one of those research studies that exposes an area of change that you would have never expected, researchers from the British Antarctic Survey have found that colonies of tiny marine creatures living on Antarctica’s seabed are suffering from climate change as a result of the increase in frequency of icebergs pounding the seafloor.
Scientists from the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) have discovered a slew of previously undiscovered underwater volcanoes in the ocean waters around the remote South Sandwich Islands, a series of islands grouped together with Britain’s claim in Antarctica.
Scientists have pinpointed the location for the first ever exploration of a sub-glacial lake in Antarctica. The eventual drill that will delve deep into the Antarctic ice layer could bring … [Read full article]
