In 2019, a new study led by researchers at the University of Maryland’s Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center used satellite data to show that increasingly large seasonal pools of melt water might widen cracks in an Antarctic ice sheet and cause it to break up.
In rare circumstances, Antarctic ice can appear blue.
Antarctic soils support surprisingly rich microbial communities.
Glaciers appear blue due to their density.
Small behavioral differences can create space for peaceful cohabitation.
Europa, Jupiter's moon, has water that may support life. The only problem is it's buried under a thick layer of ice.
Nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, is reaching dangerously high levels in the atmosphere due to global warming.
Scientists discover thriving ecosystem underneath Antarctica's ice sheet.
We're finally starting to see positive results from environmental efforts to protect the Ozone Layer.
Thanks to human ingenuity, things get even more bitterly cold!
