    Omitted from the 2007 IPCC Fourth Assessment Report on Climate Change was the potential contribution from ice sheets to global sea level. This reflected the level of uncertainty with respect to the ice dynamics (motion) and mass balance (snow and ice accumulation vs. sn...

    The ice is melting! Between 1979 and 2007 the summer sea ice extent in the Arctic has halved, from over 8 million square km to just over 4 million square km. Moreover, measurements from submarines suggest that its thickness has plummeted by some 40%. As to the future, t...
