    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...

    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...

    As with glaciers, long-lasting snowpatches have measurable features that are likely to be affected by a warming climate. Changes in these snowpatches are important as they often affect the down-slope thermal regime, water supply, nutrients, soil development, and vegetation. Australia's...

    The article discusses the impact of global climatic changes to the ice sheets in Greenland. If global warming is not minimized or mitigated, there is a possibility that the glacial ice sheets in the country will melt down. Because of such huge impact, several organizations worldwide collaborated...

    The article reports that the first comprehensive survey of glaciers on the Antarctic Peninsula shows a widespread retreat that may be more evidence of global warming. The mountainous Antarctic Peninsula stretches north from the icy continent towards South America. Its 244 glaciers dump their ice...

    The mean sea level has been projected to rise in the 21st century as a result of global warming. Such projections of sea level change depend on estimated future greenhouse emissions and on differing models, but model-average results from a mid-range scenario (A1B) suggests a 0.387-m rise by 2100...

    Mountain glaciers and ice caps are sensitive to changes in regional and global climate. Temporal glacier variations, manifested in change of volume, area and length, provide some of the clearest signals of climate change in nature. Therefore, glaciers are considered key indicators for the...
