Ice Age Earth Map
Antarctic ice surrounding the coastline is capable of retreating as much as 40 to 50 metres per day, researchers have discovered. More than a year ago, researcher Julian Dowdeswell boarded a research vessel at the edge of the Fimbul ice shelf to the east of the Antarctic Peninsula. He and six other scientists with the University A Texas A&M-led study analyzed ocean floor sediment cores to provide new insights into the relationship between deep ocean oxygenation and atmospheric carbon dioxide levels in the 50,000 years before
ARCHAEOLOGISTS have uncovered a region in South Africa which is now drowned by rising sea levels where early humans once thrived. A team of researchers led by Dr. Ben Smith from the Polar Science Center found that ice sheet loss in Greenland and Antarctica are responsible for 14 millimeters (0.55 inches)
What would it mean to abandon Earth wholesale? The proposition to throw one’s hands up and forfeit our planet is a seductive one — things are looking pretty irredeemably grim. The main stem of the Mackenzie River flows wild and uninterrupted by dams across Canada, as it has since the recession of the Laurentide Ice Sheet. Draining the eastern end of the Great Slave Lake,
Ice Age Earth Map : Part Indiana Jones, part Anthony Fauci, part That-guy-who-thrives-at-every-damn-sport-he-tries, 95-year-old Johan Hultin is the hero we need now. His work as an adventurer/pathologist is helping fight Why do carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere wax and wane in conjunction with the warm and cold periods of Earth’s past? Scientists have been trying to answer this question for many years, and .
