Now that we know life can exist in such conditions, now we need to find out how it evolved, its food chain and other related queries.
Major 7.0 magnitude earthquake strikes near Chilean Antarctica base; officials issue tsunami warning
The quake struck about 210 kilometres east of the base at a depth of 10 kilometres, Chile's National Emergency Office (Onemi) said, urging evacuation from 'the beach area of the Antarctic' ahead of a possible tsunami
Elizabeth White on filming Frozen Planet, focusing on hope and optimism within the environmental movement
"The worst possible thing we can do is say it’s too late. Because then nobody has any will to do anything," says Elizabeth White, director of Sony BBC Earth docuseries Frozen Planet.
Before 1833, at least seven million fur seals were killed in the Antarctic and sub-Antarctic.
2020 also saw the fourteenth-lowest levels of ozone – a key part of the atmosphere's shielding effect – in the past 33 years.
For sea ice to build up again this year, the upper layer of the Arctic Ocean needs to lose the excess heat it picked up during summer.
'If COVID-19 doesn't kill us, climate change will': At annual UN meet, world leaders warn of 'environmental Armageddon'
The postponement of the UN climate summit hasn't stopped countries, from slowly sinking island nations to parched African ones, from speaking out.
Calculating the Antarctic sheet was trickier as the East Antarctic ice sheet can gain mass due to global warming, as warmer temperatures cause increased snowfall.
The findings show that atmospheric warming is attacking ice shelves from above as well as warm ocean water at the surface.
In the high atmosphere above Antarctica, carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases do not have the warming effect they do in the lower atmosphere
Svalbard archipelago in the Arctic region hits a new record high temperature of 21.7 degrees Celsius
Average temperatures in Svalbard could rise by a total of 10C by 2100 if world greenhouse gas emissions keep climbing.
The seepage of the methane was first discovered in 2011 by a team of divers but studies on the site began only in 2016.
The two satellites being used for the project are expected to produce better results together owing to their different capabilities.
Research shows that if warming exceeds 2℃, major ice shelves would collapse, releasing ice, lifting the sea level by up to three metres by 2300.
The study suggested that warming was mainly driven by natural tropical climate variability and likely intensified by increases in greenhouse gas.
Recent years has seen Antarctica experienced a steady increase in sea ice, even as the Arctic has seen a marked decrease.
When the algae bloom in a large area simultaneously, it turns the snow bright green and it can be spotted from space.
Scientists discover four-billion-year-old organic compounds in Martian meteorite that smashed into Antarctica
The organic materials were synthesised locally on Mars or were delivered meteorically on the surface of the Red planet during the Noachian age.
Scientists drill in Antarctica's seafloor to find that it was once a swampy rainforest, teeming with life
During the warmest months, average temperatures was about 20-25 Celsius whereas now it is around minus 40 Celsius.
The readings that were taken by the base still needs to be verified by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and that is supposed to take months.
