Science: Enormous Crack Found in West Antartica - NASA's Terra Earth-observing satellite captured this image of Pine Island Glacier in West Antarctica on Nov. after a research team discovered a huge -long crack running across it.
The 2010 launch of the European Space Agency’s CryoSat-2 satellite finally allowed scientists to take a wide-scale view of Arctic sea ice volume, and the first five years of data have yielded some surprises.
Rogue ‘Ice Islands’ Pose New Threat in the Arctic - Glaciologists were appalled in 2010 when Greenland’s Petermann Glacier discharged a slab of ice four times the size of Manhattan into Baffin Bay. They were appalled again when Petermann dropped a two-Manhattan slab in 2012 — understandably so, since these, along with even more gargantuan ice discharges from Antarctica, are a clear signal that the planet is warming fast.

Ice. Researchers have shown that the material strength and fracture toughness of ice are decreased significantly under increasing concentrations of CO2 molecules, making ice caps and glaciers more vulnerable to cracking and splitting into pieces.
