Scientists are sailing to remote areas of the Southern Ocean to drill cores from the bottom that they hope will contain clues to past rapid changes in the Antarctic ice, and how it may react to warming climate today.

Scientists from NASA’s MESSENGER mission share some of its top discoveries — and lingering mysteries — in a new compendium.
Led by Lamont-Doherty researchers, a new study is the first to measure the time lags between changing ocean currents and major climate shifts.
From polar bears to budget cuts, a climate reporter’s job is never easy. But for some, it’s worth the struggle.
A discussion on the challenges women scientists often face, and what we can all do to help.
The world’s leading earth scientist is not allowing collective inaction to absolve her of personal responsibility.
Rainy weather is becoming increasingly common over parts of the Greenland ice sheet, triggering sudden melting events that are eating at the ice and priming the surface for more widespread future melting, says a new study.
A new project is looking for the fingerprints of climate change in the hurricanes of today, so we’ll know what to expect in the near future.
Scientists are developing a geologic record of how other planets have influenced the orbit of Earth, and thus its climate, over the last 200 million-plus years.
Newly analyzed drill cores taken from the bottom of Greece’s Gulf of Corinth show that sediment flow into the basin has varied dramatically over the past 500,000-plus years, as the earth passed in and out of ice ages, and humans later dominated the surrounding landscape.
