Sea Ice Melting Caused by Global Warming Will Make For Brutal Winters in Eurasia

Extremely harsh winters in Europe and Asia may have been started by the melt or decline in the Arctic sea ice. Japanese researchers wrote that it may have been initiated through the excitation of circulation anomalies similar to the Arctic Oscillation.

Ice Giant Planet Similar to Uranus Discovered 25,000 Light Years Away

A planet very similar to Uranus, located 25,000 light years from Earth, has been discovered. The finding is unusual because while astronomers have discovered a number of planets throughout the Milky Way galaxy, including rocky ones like Earth and gaseous ones like Jupiter, this is the closest known ice giant to our solar system.

Antarctic Ice Hits New Record High

Sea ice surrounding Antarctica reached a new record high this year. It has covered more of the southern oceans than it has since scientists began a long-term satellite record to map sea ice extent in the late 1970s.

Antarctica Ice Melting Weakened Earth's Gravitational Force

West Antarctica has lost a large amount of weight due to melting ice, and new research by the European Space Agency's Gravity field & steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE) satellite has shown that it can be felt from space.

Record-High Waves in the Beaufort Sea Due to Global Warming

Gigantic waves reaching 16 feet high in the Beaufort Sea have reached record highs. The sea, which is part of the Arctic Ocean, is no longer covered with constant layers of ice. Researchers say the constant melting is due to global warming.
