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.
Scientists find that Greenland's ice is more exposed than previously thought and that flowing water is creating vast new river deltas around the island.
Soot from wildfires can melt glaciers over a thousand miles away, scientists find.
A new study suggests that if it gets large enough, Greenland melting could change global weather patterns.
In melting Greenland, scientists detect a pulse of water and ice the size of 18,000 Empire State Buildings.
The most modest estimate is a rise of “at least” 1.7 feet by the end of the century.
A scientist tweeted satellite photos of a crack in a famous glacier. Pretty soon, NASA had taken its picture.
In 2010 and 2012, the Petermann Glacier lost extremely large pieces — each several times the size of Manhattan.
Greenland's biggest driver of sea level rise could push oceans even higher in coming years.
The new information suggests the possibility of a more rapid rate of global sea-level rise.
