Learn how NASA scientists are tracking the melting Arctic sea ice and what less ice means for global warming in the future.
NASA scientist Ron Kwok details new technology he is using to monitor how extensively Arctic sea ice is melting from below, a key indicator of the ice's long-term stability.
Ocean salinity can have a big impact when it comes to changing climate. Learn how scientists are monitoring our salty seas.
Climate change is turning a lot of Greenland's ice to water. But, how do we know?
Dr. Jørgen Peder Steffensen explained the goals of the North Greenland Eemian Ice Drilling project and what the ice cores can tell us about our climate history.
Just before the last Ice Age, temperatures were 5 to 9° F warmer than today, and global sea level was 13 to 20 feet higher. In July 2009, Climate Central traveled to Greenland to visit scientists drilling into ancient ice for clues about this chapter of the past, and what it might say about the potential effects of global warming this century.
Accompanied by a production team from StormCenter Communications, Dr. Heidi Cullen spent some time with an international team of scientists that just wrapped up their first season toward drilling a 1.6-mile core of solid ice in Greenland to find out what life is like in this remote place.
Dr. Heidi Cullen, with a production team from StormCenter Communications, met with the pilots of the 109th Airlift Wing to talk about what it's like to fly in extreme weather conditions, and their dangerous job getting people and equipment into Greenland's harsh interior and back.
