Earth's crust is rising quickly beneath the thinning ice sheet, potentially providing a stabilizing force.
Antarctica lost 3 trillion tons of ice in the last 25 years — and the losses are getting faster.
"For global sea level change in the next century, this Thwaites glacier is almost the entire story.”
Fresh water from melting glaciers could upend the circulation of the oceans, leading to a world of fast-rising seas.
An area of ice about four times the size of Manhattan is lifting from the seafloor each year in Antarctica.
For every five-year delay in strong action on climate change, the ocean could rise an additional eight inches by the year 2300, researchers concluded.
Scientists have documented a trend of increasing snowfall as temperatures rise in one vast region.
Thanks to NASA — and the laws of physics — 293 coastal cities can now know which specific glaciers pose the most dangers to them if they melt.
NASA scientists capture close-up images of the largest iceberg in history to split off from Antarctica
The Dotson ice shelf holds back two large glaciers and connects to the larger West Antarctic ice sheet.
