A key Antarctic glacier just lost a huge piece of ice — the latest sign of its worrying retreat.

Pine Island glacier is capable of driving 1.7 feet of sea level rise.

Mammoth Antarctic iceberg is on the move, while the ice shelf it left behind grieves its loss.

The Delaware-sized iceberg that calved off the Larsen C Ice Shelf in Antarctica sometime between July 10 and July 12 is drifting farther from its former home, while breaking into smaller pieces.

Despite summer snow, Greenland is still melting.

Make no mistake, Greenland is still melting, dumping water into the ocean and causing global sea levels to steadily rise.

Recent summers on the vast, white expanse of the Greenland ice sheet have featured some spectacular ice melt, including an alarming period in 2012 when nearly the whole surface showed signs of melt. But this summer has instead seen several bouts of snow, staving off a big summer melt. So what gives?

Solve Antarctica’s sea-ice puzzle.

We need to know whether crucial interactions and feedbacks between the atmosphere, ocean and sea ice are missing from global climate models, and to what extent human influences are implicated.

John Turner and Josefino Comiso call for a coordinated push to crack the baffling rise and fall of sea ice around Antarctica.

'Catastrophic collapse' of West Antarctic ice sheet could raise global sea levels by three metres, warns scientist.

The break-up of the Ross Ice Shelf, which is about the size of France, could have serious consequences for the planet.

Climate change and the hole in the ozone layer could cause “a catastrophic collapse” of the vast amount of ice on West Antarctica, raising sea levels by 3.3 metres, a leading scientists has warned.

These images show just how big the Larsen C iceberg is.

To help create a more helpful visual frame of reference, Climate Central has created a series of images showing the ice next to familiar places.

Trillion-ton, Delaware-size iceberg breaks off Antarctica's Larsen C ice shelf.

Ice shelves act as giant buffers slowing the flow of land ice toward the ocean. While this break was driven by natural processes, it reflects concerns in the region.
