New research shows algae growing on the Greenland ice sheet, the Earth's second-largest ice sheet, significantly reduce the surface reflectivity of the ice sheet's bare ice area and contribute more to its melting than dust or black carbon. The new findings could influence scientists' understanding of ice sheet melting and projections of future sea level rise, according to the study's authors.

This series of maps shows the generalized glacial extent in North America as the Cordilleran and Laurentide ice sheets waxed and waned. From top to bottom, the maps show ice extent at about 25,000 years ago, 20,000 years ago, 14,500 years ago and 12,000 years ago. Credit: basemap by NOAA NGDC; modified by Kathleen Cantner, AGI.

Origin of American natives are north manchurians (Dong-ie tribe) who moved through Bering Land Bridge on/around years ago. There were volcano eruption in North machuria. Fieldwork revises ice-free corridor hypothesis of human migration

East Antarctic Ice Sheet. The East Antarctic Ice Sheet is the largest of Antarctica’s ice sheets, and has a very different behaviour to its counterparts. Its dynamics and geography are distinctive, and the East Antarctic Ice Sheet behemoth warrants a closer look in its own right.

Western Antarctic ice sheet collapse has already begun, scientists warn

The glacier loss in the West Antarctic appears "unstoppable", with nothing to prevent sections of the ice sheet melting completely into the sea, according to a new study by researchers at NASA and the University of California, Irvine.

What's hidden under the Greenland ice sheet?

What's hidden under the Greenland ice sheet?

In an indication that 2012 may be a record melt year for Greenland's ice sheet, data shows the reflectivity of the ice sheet is near a record low.

The Greenland ice sheet is poised for another record melt this year, and is approaching a "tipping point" into a new and more dangerous melt regime in which the summer melt area covers the entire land mass
