Visualised: glaciers then and now

The world’s glaciers are melting at an ever-increasing pace, with one report suggesting the rate of ice loss roughly doubles every 10 years. Scientists are saying the rapid disappearance of mountain glaciers – separate from the Greenland and Antarctic ice…

Global glacier retreat has accelerated

(ETH Zurich) An international research team including scientists from ETH Zurich has shownthat almost all the world’s glaciers are becoming thinner and losing mass – andthat these changes are picking up pace. The team’s analysis is the most comprehensive and accurate of its kind to date.

Was North America populated by ‘stepping stone’ migration across Bering Sea?

New duckbilled dinosaur discovered in Japan

(Southern Methodist University) An international team of paleontologists has identified a new genus and species of hadrosaur or duck-billed dinosaur, Yamatosaurus izanagii, on one of Japan’s southern islands.The fossilized discovery yields new information about hadrosaur migration, suggesting that the herbivors migrated from Asia to North America instead of vice versa. The discovery also illustrates an evolutionary step as the giant creatures evolved from walking upright to walking on all fours.

Climate Change Has Shifted the Axis of the Earth – SciTechDaily

Loss of water on land through ice melting and human-caused factors is changing the movement of the North and South poles. Glacial melting due to global warming is likely the cause of a shift in the movement of the poles…
