Climate change from a historical context was more closely linked to carbon dioxide than previously thought, according to research by the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen

A giant iceberg has been formed off the Petermann Glacier in Greenland. The Manhattan size piece of ice is 46 square miles across and is about half the size of the berg formed in 2010 from the same glacier.

A study assessing the 40 years of satellite imagery collected from the critical portion of the West Antarctic is showing signs of stress.

For the first time, a hole similar to that seen over Antarctica for decades has emerged over the Arctic for the first time.The unusually cold weather at altitude is said to have caused the damage, where 80% of ozone was lost at 20km above the ground. During cold spells, chlorine chemicals in the atmosphere are more active.
19 September 2011 | Europe, North America, Antarctica
It is a grim week for news on climate change, as two new studies show things may be worse than first thought. A study by the National Centre for Atmospheric Research has revealed that missing energy caused by rising greenhouse gasses could be being stored in the deep ocean.

The Petermann glacier in Greenland was 186 miles (300km) long and 3,280ft (1000m) high and in the space of two years it has broken up almost completely.
02 September 2011 | Antarctica
Researchers from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zürich) have shown a close relation between contributions of dust to the southern ocean and intense periods of climate change during the Pleistocene.
A survey from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact says a balance between increased biomass use, forest protection and advances in crop yields, is essential to reduce global carbon emissions.
