During SXSW in Austin, Texas, earlier this month, award-winning Canadian documentary photographer Louie Palu held an unusual exhibition titled “Arctic Passage.” His large format photos were displayed on a plaza frozen within large blocks of ice.Palu shot the photos in the Arctic over the course of three years while on assignment for National Geographic, and the work explores geopoliti
With the Earth in a state of flux at the moment, we need to keep a particularly close eye on Antarctica. Plenty of satellites are whizzing overhead to do just that, and now a new study has examined 25 years of data they've collected to get a sense of the extent of ice loss across Antarctica. According to the findings, warming waters have destabilized as much as a quarter of the glacier ice

It's no secret that glaciers are becoming rarer and smaller in our warming world, but it's hard to understand the extent of that ice loss. Now, a comprehensive study has put a number to it, by combining field observations on the ground and satellite data. The team found that between 1961 and 2016, glaciers globally lost a total of over 9 trillion tonnes of ice, contributing significantly t
the project is an architectural exploration that combines igloo construction and the modernist tradition of geodesic domes. The post nikolas and lukas bentel construct the geodesic igloo from triangular sheets of ice appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is a major driver of shifts in the Earth's climate, as we know all too well in our currently warming world. But it also works the other way – in the past too little CO2 has been associated with triggering ice ages. Now a team of scientists has found a surprising new mechanism that could lead to ice ages: Tropical tectonic activity... Continue Reading Can tr
