What does climate change look like? For many people, the first – or perhaps only – image that comes to mind is of smokestacks, or polar bears perched on ice floes.

Global mean temperatures near the Earth’s surface continued to set new records between 2011 and 2015, consistent with rising levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, according to preliminary findings of the assessment of the state of the climate in the current 5 years period.

Research finds 20cm rise since start of 20th century, caused by global warming and the melting of polar ice, is unprecedented.

Some glaciers in the Himalayas mountain range have gained a small amount of mass between 1999 and 2008.

The National Centre for Antarctic and Ocean Research (NCAOR) Research Director, Rasik Ravindran, pegs climate change studies as the most significant from the perspective of future.

The total volume of water that has melted from all of world’s polar ice sheets, ice caps and mountain glaciers over the past decade would repeatedly fill Britain’s largest lake, Windemere, more tha

After more than two decades of drilling in Antarctica, Russian scientists have reached the surface of a gigantic freshwater lake hidden under miles of ice for some 20 million years, a lake that may

The provisional statement on the status of the global climate, released by WMO provides the technical information on world’s 10th warmest year, warmest year with La Niña on record, second-lowest Arctic sea ice extent for the year 2011.

Arctic sea ice at its lowest in 2011, says World Meteorological Organization report. The year 2011 has been the 10th warmest year on record in spite of a strong La Nina, which has a relatively cooling influence. In the event of a La Nina, the sea surface temperature is lower than usual in the tropical Pacific Ocean. Also, in 2011, the extent of the Arctic sea ice was the second lowest on record, and its volume was the lowest, revealed a provisional statement by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
