Study reveals East Antarctic ice’s vulnerability to ocean heat

Study reveals East Antarctic ice’s vulnerability to ocean heat

Harsh winds and chilly ocean currents have cut off East Antarctica from the rest of the world, and its massive stores of ice have mostly remained intact. But, researchers have discovered major melting that could foretell a less stable future for the region.

Last year, a team of Australian researchers found a channel of warm water nearly 10 kilometers wide and 1 kilometer deep in front of the massive Totten Glacier, causing it to unprecedentedly melt.

Researchers analyze diamond chunks to better understand deep Earth

Researchers analyze diamond chunks to better understand deep Earth

In a bid to better understand the extreme depths of Earth, a diamond geologist and colleagues at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) cracked open and analyzed tiny chunks and scraps leftover from some of the world’s biggest diamonds.

The researchers led by diamond geologist Evan Smith got the GIA to acquire eight fingernail-sized chunks of those big, expensive diamonds. The chunks were leftover from big diamonds when the rough diamonds were cut into glistening jewels.

Atmospheric levels of methane are on the rise: researchers warn

Atmospheric levels of methane are on the rise: researchers warn

Atmospheric levels of methane (CH4), one of the most powerful greenhouse gases, are on the rise, a team of researchers reported in an analysis published in the journal Environmental Research Letters on Sunday.

The researchers warned that methane is surging in the atmosphere after a period of comparative stagnation in the 2000s. They also warned that efforts to tackle global warming and climate change will be undermined unless efforts are made to bring methane under tighter control.
