Body Of Evidence: All Of Antarctica Is Cooling… Peninsula Cooling Since Long Before Greta Was Born

The cooling since the 1990s hadn’t fully taken over the warming from 1979-1999 yet, so that’s why the overall trend is still a slight, statistically insignificant warming when referencing the…

“Surprising” And “Statistically Significant” Cooling Trend Over Entire Continental Antarctica

East Antarctica, which covers two thirds of the South Pole, has cooled a whopping 2.8°C over the past 4 decades; West Antarctica approximately 1.6°C. ..only tiny Antarctic Peninsula saw statistically…

The Most Inconvenient Region On The Planet For Global Warming Alarmists: Antarctica Sees Growing Sea Ice

More ice of course only forms when the temperature drops. Global warming has yet to reach the South Pole. This is one of the most inconvenient regions on the planet…

Increased snowfall will offset sea level rise from melting Antarctic ice sheet

Using modern methods to calculate projected changes to sea levels, researchers discovered that the two ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica respond differently, reflecting their very distinct local climates.

Thwaites glacier: Significant geothermal heat beneath the ice stream

Nevertheless, the heat flow could be a crucial factor that needs to be considered when it comes to the future of Thwaites Glacier. According to Gohl: “Large amounts of geothermal…

Holocene Antarctic CO2 Variability or Lack Of

Guest Post by Renee Hannon Introduction This post examines CO2 ice core measurements from Antarctica during the Holocene Epoch. The key CO2 dataset for paleoclimate studies is the EPICA Dome…

Save the Penguins!

“Our results show that if sea ice declines at the rate projected by climate models under current energy system trends and policies, the 3Rs would be dramatically reduced and almost…

New Study Finds East And West Antarctica Have Profoundly Cooled By -2.8°C And -1.68°C Since 1979

From 1979-2018 East Antarctica cooled -0.70°C/decade (-2.8°C), West Antarctica cooled -0.42°C/decade (-1.68°C), but the Antarctic Peninsula warmed 0.18°C/decade (0.72°C). Thus, as a whole, the Antarctic continent has cooled by about…

Pine Island Glacier’s ice shelf is ripping apart, speeding up key Antarctic glacier

“The recent changes in speed are not due to melt-driven thinning; instead they’re due to the loss of the outer part of the ice shelf,” Joughin said. “The glacier’s speedup…

Antarctica wasn’t quite as cold during the last ice age as previously thought

An international team of scientists, led by Oregon State University’s Christo Buizert, has found that while parts of Antarctica were as cold as 10 degrees below current temperatures, temperatures over…

Claim: Antarctica is headed for a climate tipping point by 2060, with catastrophic melting if carbon emissions aren’t cut quickly

Some other researchers suggest that ice cliffs in Antarctica might not collapse as quickly as those in Greenland. But given their size and current rates of warming – far faster…

Debunked: New Computer Simulated Pine Island Glacier Doomsday Paper By Rosier et al Ignores Lots Of Science

Die kalte Sonne brings up the question: Why were these earlier studies – many based on observations – ignored by Rosier et al? “Hard to believe they were,” says the…

MWP & LIA In The Ross Sea

To add to that picture, this study found that elephant seals migrated to the Victoria Land Coast in the Ross Sea about 8000 years ago, as the region became warmer,…

Mass balance of the Antarctic ice sheet 1992–2016: reconciling results from GRACE gravimetry with ICESat, ERS1/2 and Envisat altimetry

During 1992–2016, the AIS changed from a positive mass balance of over 100 Gt a−1, which was reducing sea-level rise by 0.3 mm a−1, to a state of balance close…

Claim: Evidence of Antarctic glacier’s tipping point confirmed for first time

He added: “The possibility of Pine Island Glacier entering an unstable retreat has been raised before but this is the first time that this possibility is rigorously established and quantified.

Claim: Antarctic Peninsula warming up due to heat in Tasman sea

Heating of the Tasman sea warms up the climate of Antarctic Peninsula via changes in wind patterns, new study by Japanese and Australian scientists shows RESEARCH ORGANIZATION OF INFORMATION AND…

NASA’s ICESat-2 satellite reveals shape, depth of Antarctic ice shelf fractures

PENN STATE Research News When a block of ice the size of Houston, Texas, broke off from East Antarctica’s Amery Ice Shelf in 2019, scientists had anticipated the calving event,…

Measuring melting ice

That meltwater forms strong coastal currents and ocean fronts, and those currents are impacted by winds, tides, and break down if they become unstable. Aside from generating those currents, the…

Common Martian Mineral Found in Antarctic Ice Core

Guest “geologizing” by David Middleton Geology rocks! Substance found in Antarctic ice may solve a martian mysteryBy Tess Joosse Jan. 26, 2021 Researchers have discovered a common martian mineral deep…

The CO2 Kink; Firn to Ice Transition

Guest Post by Renee Hannon Introduction This post examines CO2 data collected in Antarctic firn and its journey as firn transitions to ice where CO2 is eventually trapped in bubbles.…

NSF-funded deep ice core to be drilled at Hercules Dome, Antarctica

Antarctica’s next deep ice core, drilling down to ice from 130,000 years ago, will be carried out by a multi-institutional U.S. team at Hercules Dome, a location hundreds of miles…

Atmospheric rivers help create massive holes in Antarctic sea ice

Warm, moist rivers of air in Antarctica play a key role in creating massive holes in sea ice in the Weddell Sea and may influence ocean conditions around the vast…

From the “that darned sea ice is messing up our model” department and MIT News. Study suggests sea ice blocks the flow of carbon both into and out of the…

Emperor penguin numbers rise as biologists petition for IUCN Red List upgrade
