    Analysis of mass balance data from arctic mountain and subpolar glaciers with an aggregate area of more than 300* 10³ km² reveals that these glaciers were the main source of increased freshwater inflow to the Arctic Ocean over the 1961-1998 period. The sum of net water inflow from glaciers...

    The northern Antarctic Peninsula is currently undergoing rapid atmospheric warming. Increased glacier-surface melt during the twentieth century has contributed to ice-shelf collapse and the widespread acceleration, thinning and recession of glaciers. Therefore, glaciers peripheral to the...

  • The Big Break. Cabral, Elena // Scholastic News -- Edition 5/6;4/21/2008, Vol. 76 Issue 22, p6 

    The article reports on a chunk of ice that broke off the Wilkins Ice Shelf in Antarctic. The ice shelf is hundreds of years old, and some melting is expected to happen naturally. But in March 2008, scientists say a chunk of ice covering 160 square miles broke away from the shelf. Only a thin...

  • Earth's Hot Spots.  // Weekly Reader News - Edition 3;1/9/2008, Vol. 78 Issue 14, Special section p4 

    This article describes the possible effects of global warming on the different parts of the world. In North America, warmer temperatures could limit snowfall and cause more floods in the winter and less rain in the summer. Parts of Europe could have less rain during the summer that could cause...

    The article focuses on the sophisticated model built by scientist Sarah Raper in assessing the effects of global warming on glaciers and ice caps. This model suggests that the global rise in sea levels caused by global warming might not be as great as some estimates have found. But it also shows...

    Recent changes in speed, thinning, and retreat rates of marine-terminating outlet glaciers have raised concerns about the future stability of the Greenland Ice Sheet. Establishing a longer term record of outlet glacier retreat rates is essential to provide a context for present-day observations...
