Ice sheets are melting far faster than we thought — in a worst-case climate breakdown, coastal cities like New York and Shanghai would be swampe...
Scientists have underestimated how much sea levels will rise by 2100. A new study shows that oceans could rise by 6.5 feet, swamping coastal cities.
The Polar Star makes a resupply trip to Antarctic research stations each year, but the journey is increasingly challenging for the aging icebreaker.
Antarctica is about to lose an iceberg 30 times the size of Manhattan as two cracks converge — and it could cripple a British research station
NASA is tracking two converging cracks in Antarctica's Brunt Ice Shelf. When they meet, an iceberg 30 times the size of Manhattan could float away.
There’s a cavity underneath Antarctica that’s two thirds the size of Manhattan — a sign ice sheets are melting faster than we though...
Nearly 14 billion tons of ice have melted underneath Antarctica's Thwaites Glacier, leaving an almost Manhattan-sized cavity beneath the surface.
Paleontologists discovered a tiny dinosaur relative at the South Pole, which they've named "Antarctic King." The fossil is some 250 million years old.
Parts of the Midwest are colder than Antarctica due to a polar vortex. Can you guess which photo was taken where?
The Midwest is experiencing a polar vortex with subzero temperatures colder than Antarctica right now. Can you tell the two places apart in photos?
Parts of the US are colder than Antarctica as a frigid polar vortex brings temperatures of minus 30 degrees
Temperatures of minus 30 degrees Fahrenheit were recorded in Wisconsin on Wednesday morning. Only one weather station in Antarctica got lower.
Icebreaker Polar Star is the only ship that can smash its way through Antarctic ice, but the annual mission batters the aging vessel.
Scientists just drilled the deepest hole ever in western Antarctica, going 2 kilometers down through the ice to study how it’s melting
Scientists drilled a 2-kilometer-deep hole in western Antarctica in hopes of understanding how the continent's ice is reacting to our warming planet.
China's icebreaker research ship Xue Long collided with an iceberg in western Antarctica's Amundsen Sea over the weekend, according to state media.
