Emperor penguin breeding failure linked with Antarctic sea ice decline

Other Antarctic seabird colonies have also suffered steep population declines as researchers warn that global warming will take a toll on many ice-dependent species in coming decades.

No quick fix to reverse Antarctic sea ice loss as warming intensifies, scientists say

Sea ice in the Antarctic region has fallen to a record low this year as a result of rising global temperatures and there is no quick fix to reverse the damage done, scientists said on Tuesday in a new study of the impact of climate change on the continent.

Climate change: Norwegian seafloor holds clue to Antarctic melting

Antarctica's melting ice sheet could retreat much faster than previously thought, new research suggests. The evidence comes from markings on the seafloor off Norway that record the pull-back of a melting European ice sheet thousands of years ago.
