Poop stains visible from space reveal hidden colonies of Antarctic penguins
Along the Antarctic coast, icebergs regularly break away from glaciers and plunge into the nutrient-rich waters below. Carried by currents and wind, these icebergs can scrape the seafloor, wiping out the marine communities in their paths. via @GlacierHub
A particle called a neutrino was detected on Earth, found by sensors deep in the Antarctic ice, and traced to its source for the first time. Neutrinos are known as "ghost particles" because they can pass through solid objects.
I don't want to be an alarmist, but these are the facts: Antarctic ice loss in 1979: 40 billion tons per year. Antarctic ice loss in 2017: 252 billion tons per year.
A penguin in the Antarctic gave researchers a surprise when it paid them a flying visit
We just experienced the hottest year on record. How do we know? By analyzing land, sea and Antarctic data:
