Upside-down 'rivers' are melting Antarctic ice shelves from beneath
Antarctic ice shelves are being destabilized by hidden, upside-down 'rivers' of warm water that course below the shelves and melt them from underneath, new research shows.
'Precipitous' fall in Antarctic sea ice since 2014 revealed
The vast expanse of sea ice around Antarctica has suffered a ‘precipitous’ fall since 2014, satellite data shows, and fell at a faster rate than seen in the Arctic.
Antarctic ecosystems under threat from invasive flightless midge, scientists warn
An invasion of flightless, biteless midges have arrived uninvited in Antarctica where their rapid proliferation represents a major threat to the fragile ecosystem, scientists have warned.
Antarctic cloud pattern study helping scientists unravel climate change secrets
Scientists have a new weapon in their arsenal to help with the study of the unique cloud patterns above the Southern Ocean, hopefully leading to better climate predictions.
Plans for world's largest ocean sanctuary in Antarctic blocked
A plan to create the world's largest marine sanctuary in Antarctic waters was shot down when a key conservation summit failed to reach a consensus, with environmentalists on Saturday decrying a lack of scientific foresight.
Ice melt fears after active volcano found beneath Antarctic glacier
An active volcano has been unexpectedly discovered beneath a rapidly vanishing glacier in Antarctica by a team of scientists studying the melting ice shelf.
West Antarctic Ice Sheet unlikely to reverse retreat
A new study of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet during the Holocene suggests the ice sheet is unlikely to reverse its accelerating retreat as it has in the past.
Global warming causes change in Antarctic sea life
A team of scientists who found an array of sea life not found before in an area they explored beneath an Antarctic ice shelf believe the dramatic change may be caused by global warming·
Antarctic ice rift spreads
The rift in the Larsen C ice shelf in Antarctica now has a second branch, which is moving in the direction of the ice front, Swansea University researchers revealed after studying the latest satellite data.
Massive Antarctic ice shelf ready to break apart
A chunk of ice half the size of Jamaica which is breaking away from West Antarctica is now attached to its parent ice shelf just by a thread, scientists reported.
Massive iceberg ready to break from Antarctic ice shelf
Scientists with the British Antarctic Survey believe a massive iceberg is preparing to calve from the Antarctic Peninsula's Larsen C ice shelf. Recent satellite images revealed a growing fracture.
Giant, swimming lizard hunted Antarctic seas 66m years ago
The discovery of an ancient sea lizard skull has shed light on the diversity and distribution of mosasaurs — giant lizards that hunted marine reptiles during the Cretaceous period.
World's largest marine park created in Antarctic Ocean
Twenty-four countries and the European Union agreed on Friday to create the world's largest marine park in the Antarctic Ocean, covering a massive 1.55 million square km (600,000 square miles) of ocean.
Sea ice responsible for rising mercury in Antarctic fish, birds
Researchers say Antarctic sea ice is encouraging the accumulation of methylmercury, a more toxic form of mercury, in birds and fish.
