Record Greenland Ice Core May Help Explain Abrupt Climate Change

8/26/2009 A new, international Greenland-based research effort set a record for single-season deep ice-core drilling this summer, recovering more than a mile of ice core that will help scientists better assess the risks of future abrupt climate change.

NSF-funded, University of California, Santa Barbara Team Proposes Antarctic Location for ‘Missing' Ice Sheet

8/25/2009 New research indicates a possible Antarctic location for ice that seemed to be missing at a key point in climate history 34 million years ago. The research has important implications for understanding climate change.

U.S.-Canada Joint Expedition to Survey the Extended Continental Shelf in the Arctic

7/28/2009 The U.S. Extended Continental Shelf Task Force will conduct a joint 41-day mission jointly with Canada this summer to collect scientific data about the continental shelf in the Arctic. The mission is scheduled from Aug. 7 to Sept. 16.

NSF Awards $2.5M grant to Antarctic Marine Geology Research Facility

7/14/2009 The Florida State University facility serves as the repository for the world's largest collection of sediment samples extracted from the floor of the Southern Ocean.

NSF-funded, University of Buffalo Researchers: Ice Sheets Can Retreat "In a Geologic Instant," Study of Prehistoric Glacier Shows

6/21/2009 Modern glaciers, such as those making up the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, are capable of undergoing periods of rapid shrinkage or retreat, according to new findings by paleoclimatologists at the University at Buffalo.

Greenland Ice Sheet Larger Contributor to Sea-level Rise than Previosuly Thought

6/11/2009 The Greenland ice sheet is melting faster than expected according to a new study led by a University of Alaska Fairbanks researcher. The study was partly funded by the University of Alaska Presidential IPY Postdoctoral Foundation

A Survivor in Greenland: A Novel Bacterial Species is Found Trapped in 120,000-Year-Old Ice

6/3/2009 Penn State scientists have discovered an ultra-small species of bacteria that has survived for more than 120,000 years within the ice of a Greenland glacier at a depth of nearly two miles. NSF, NASA and the Department of Energy funded the research.

NOAA Unmanned Aircraft Helping Scientists Learn About Alaskan Ice Seals

6/2/2009 NOAA's Fisheries Service scientists and their partners have launched an unmanned aircraft to mount the vehicle’s first search for ice seals at the southern edge of the Bering Sea pack ice during the Arctic spring.

Scientists Return from Drilling Beneath Frozen Russian Lake for Arctic Climate Clues

5/28/2009 An international scientific team has returned from a six-month drilling expedition to Siberia's Lake El'gygytgyn, where they collected the longest sediment core retrieved in the Arctic. The core may have unprecedented significance to climate studies.
