This new paleorecord can help scientists better understand how climate change and human activity are changing marine mammals’ environments and habits.
The impacts of the Antarctic Ice Sheet response to climate change will have global consequences for millions living near the coast. It’s just a matter of when.
New research focuses on the bubbling and bathtub-like sounds of a glacier.
A coordinated effort involving trailblazing science—and icebreaking ships—from many nations is needed to fill gaps in our understanding of the Arctic Ocean and how it’s changing.
The newly digitized data double the timescale of ice-penetrating radar monitoring in some of the fastest changing areas of Antarctica.
Winds are thought to play a significant role in driving the asymmetric seasonal cycle of Antarctic sea ice growth and melt.
It’s notoriously difficult to access, but new technologies, international collaboration, regional models, and interdisciplinary approaches are improving understanding of the Weddell Gyre.
A new study tracks how climatic factors like sea ice cover and ocean circulation affect the life span and distribution of polychlorinated biphenyls in the world’s oceans.
A semi-conservative tracer combining nitrate and dissolved oxygen is more accurate than traditional tracers in distinguishing between Atlantic and Pacific water mass contributions to the Arctic.
Two years of mooring observations at the edge of the continental shelf show that wind stress and upwelling control the inflow of some of the warmest water observed at an ice shelf front in Antarctica.
