The melting of sea ice in the Arctic is well on its way toward its annual "minimum," that time when the floating ice cap covers less of the Arctic Ocean than at any other period during the year.
Economic modelling shows that the methane emissions caused by shrinking sea ice from just one area of the Arctic could come with a global price tag of 60 trillion dollars - the size of the world economy in 2012.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has concluded that rising temperatures will lead to a massive "greening" of the Arctic by mid-century, as a result of marked increases in plant cover.
Scientists are currently predicting that rising temperatures will lead to a massive "greening," or increase in plant cover, in the Arctic.
Northern latitudes are greening up, says a NASA-funded study, increasingly resembling the lusher latitudes of the south.
Last October's Superstorm Sandy was made far worse by the melting of Arctic sea ice, new research suggests.
Giant camels once roamed Canada's High Arctic - much further north than previously believed - and may have evolved their flat feet and humps as a result.
If you need help in snow and ice, who better to ask for help than a yeti?
Within 50 years, ordinary ships will be able to negotiate shipping lanes through the Arctic Ocean during late summer, new UCLA research shows.
The widespread decline in Arctic sea ice is causing big changes to the balance of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, say researchers from Sweden's Lund University.
It appears that, when Arctic permafrost melts, it can release carbon dioxide gas into the atmosphere much faster than previously thought.
Arctic has introduced a Linux-powered system specifically designed to run XBMC's popular Media Center app.
Solar geoengineering can be safely tailored to manage specific risks like the loss of Arctic sea ice, says a group of researchers keen to persuade the world that such techniques aren't necessarily a disaster waiting to happen.
The blanket of sea ice floating atop the Arctic Ocean has melted to its lowest extent ever recorded - since satellites began measuring it in 1979, to be exact.
Melting sea ice and global atmospheric warming are making the Arctic warm as much as four times faster than the global average, Australian scientists say.
NASA scientists say they've made a discovery in the Arctic Ocean 'as dramatic and unexpected as finding a rainforest in the middle of a desert'.
As Arctic sea ice melts through global warming, Americans can expect - paradoxically - to see more severe winter weather.
A Canadian fjord may help scientists improve their understanding of Jupiter's icy Europa moon.
NASA scientists have detected large releases of methane - a highly potent greenhouse gas - from the crumbling Arctic sea ice.
As the Arctic warms, thawing permafrost will release greenhouse gases faster and in greater amounts than previously believed.
