Ice and Sediment Samples Show Glacial and Interglacial Temperature Variability

Feb. 5, 2018—On the basis of a unique global comparison of data from core samples extracted from the ocean floor and the polar ice sheets, researchers at the Alfred-Wegener Institute (AWI) have demonstrated that, though climate changes have indeed decreased around the globe from glacial to interglacial periods, the difference is by no means as pronounced as previously assumed. Until

Measuring Polar Ice

The Arctic will be a tad busier over the coming weeks as numerous researchers join forces to measure ice on land and sea in order to understand and respond to dwindling polar ice, which is being given increasing importance at global climate discussions, including strategies to mitigate and adapt to change. Unequivocal evidence of changing polar ice comes largely from
