Greenland’s Indigenous peoples once wore bold face tattoos that carried deep spiritual and cultural significance. But during the centuries of Denmark's colonial rule, the Inuit tradition of getting face and hand tattoos disappeared. One Inuk tattoo artist is now reviving a piece of Inuit heritage for community members living in Denmark.
The Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets are melting at alarming rates due to climate change and will continue to do so for decades — even if the Paris climate agreement goals are met.
As global warming intensified, people and ecosystems felt the climate changing, from the hurricane-ravaged coasts to the fast-warming Arctic.
For nearly a decade, author Robert Macfarlane has been venturing into ice caves, exploring underwater rivers and crawling through catacombs. His latest book, "Underland: A Deep Time Journey," documents these travels and explores the human relationship with the "deep time" of down below.
Researchers on Greenland’s ice sheet are trying to find out more about our planet and the future implications with rising seas. It’s also spectacularly beautiful and surreal.
The Greenland ice sheet has long helped cool the world and keep sea levels stable. But now it's melting, and scientists are trying to learn as much as they can, as fast as they can.
The global circulatory system is incredibly complex, and parts of it, like the North Icelandic Jet, are barely understood. That's why these scientists are in Iceland in the dead of winter.
When it came to figuring how much ice loss was taking place over the last five years in Antarctica, they knew it was a bad situation — but they did not realize it was this bad.
While it's been unusually cold and snowy in much of Europe, the Arctic has been seeing record warm temperatures and a huge loss of ice. Here's how the two are linked, and what they might have to do with climate change.
Hurricanes, floods, heat, drought, wildfires — climate change is creating the conditions for an increased risk of catastrophic weather events in the coming years, according to climate researchers.
