Drone images show Greenland ice sheet becoming more unstable as it fractures
The findings show that fast-flowing glaciers in Greenland are subject to significant forcing by surface meltwater. They also show that changes in ice flow occur on much shorter timescales than considered possible so far.

Antarctica likely to drive rapid sea-level rise under climate change
The researchers examined historical and new data from the ‘last interglacial’, which took place 125,000 to 118,000 years ago and saw sea levels rise up to 10 metres above current levels.
