Scientists have discovered that many Antarctic ice shelves are losing ice not just by calving icebergs but by melting from their undersides as well.
Scientists think they know why some European glaciers started to shrink decades before climate change had begun to raise temperatures.
New research shows that Large stretches of ice along the polar coastlines could fall into the sea faster than originally thought
New study finds current greenhouse gas emissions are likely to have triggered an irreversible warming causing melt from glaciers, ice caps, Greenland and Antarctic

Glaciers have “sped up” and contribution to sea level rise still significant but data shows we’re not on track for worst case scenario.
Pakistan launches an adaptation project – the first of its kind – to help vulnerable communities cope with the threat of Glacier Lake Flood Outburst from receding glaciers.
