1/12/2010 Until recently, the Antarctic ice sheet looked to be bucking the global warming trend. Now a new study shows an overall warming trend across Antarctica, with this trend being strongest over the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. More

Global Ice Age Climate Patterns Influenced by Bering Strait: Small Geographic Feature has Large Effects on Climate

1/12/2010 In a vivid example of how a small geographic feature may have far-reaching impacts on climate, new research shows that water levels in the Bering Strait helped drive global climate patterns during ice-age episodes over 100,000 years. More
