Changing climatic patterns are affecting the health of glaciers in the Himalayan region.

Two-thirds of the ice in the glaciers of the Alps is doomed to melt by the end of the century as climate change forces up temperatures, a study has found.

Last January, a study in Nature Climate Change showed the world's glaciers are the smallest they've been in human history, revealing radiocarbon material that hasn't been exposed for 40,000 years.

Scientists have discovered a network of lakes beneath the largest glacier in East Antarctica, a finding that may be critical in predicting how the melting of polar ice will change the world’s ocean

NASA's Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) project has revealed Greenland’s Jakobshavn Glacier, the island’s biggest, is actually growing, at least at its edge.

Two new icebergs have broken off the Grey Glacier in Chile’s Patagonia in recent weeks, amid fears that such ruptures are becoming more frequent, scientists told Reuters.

The Arctic Ocean could become ice-free in the summer in the next 20 years due to a natural, long-term warming phase in the tropical Pacific that adds to human-caused warming, according to a new stu

BENGALURU: Three years ago when there was fear that a growing glacial lake behind south Lhonak Glacier in Sikkim could touch off glacial outburst floods, it's the Divecha Centre for Climate Change

NEW DELHI: More than a third of the glaciers in the Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) mountain range, the "water tower" of Asia, will vanish by the end of this century even if global warming is contained

Greenland is melting faster than scientists previously thought, with the pace of ice loss increasing four-fold since 2003, new research has found.
