After Antarctica, Greenland's ice cap contains the second largest mass of frozen fresh water in the world. Based on new research using NASA's airborne laser altimeter, scientists have identified pronounced thinning of Greenland's ice cap. This new research indicates enough ice loss to cause a measurable rise in sea levels. This site, produced by NASA's Scientific Visualization Studio, features text, ... Full description.

This page examines the discussion among scientists regarding the retreat or growth of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. It appears that the West Antarctic Ice Sheet is retreating more slowly than they thought. In fact, it may have been growing just 8,000 years ago, long after the end of the most recent Ice Age. The article features text, maps, graphs, and links to related topics. Full description.

Recent satellite images have revealed two new icebergs floating off the Antarctic coast. The icy behemoths are fragments of the Ninnis Glacier. This NASA fact sheet uses text and remotely sensed imagery to describe the events of January 2000, in which a large tongue of the Ninnis Galcier broke off and split into two gigantic icebergs. The breakup of the Ninnis Glacier Tongue has important implications ... Full description.

During most of the last one billion years the globe had no permanent ice. However, sometimes large areas of the globe were covered with vast ice sheets. Users can read and view pictures which help explain what ice ages are, when they occurred, and why they occur. This site, sponsored by the Illinois State Museum, has links to web pages on paleontology of the midwestern United States during the last ... Full description.
