'Arctic ocean is dying' says scientist crew that observed the epicentre of climate change for a year
The 140-million-euro expedition, consisting of a team of several hundred scientists from 20 countries, are bringing back 150 terabytes of data and more than 1,000 ice samples.
Massive chunk of Greenland's ice caps has broken off, falls into the sea; evidence of rapid climate change
The ice came off a fjord called Nioghalvfjerdsfjorden and is around 110 square kilometres big.
The faeces of the mammoth will contain a lot of information about the 'mammoth's diet as well as the pollen of ancient plants and a lot more'.
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.
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.
Scientists used the European Space Agency's Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service to keep a track of the ozone hole.
The ozone hole over the Arctic, less than 1 million sq. km, is much smaller than Antarctica's hole that can reach a size of 20 to 25 million sq. km.
The ozone-depleting substances have also caused about a third of all the global warming from 1955 to 2005.
A previous study had shown that thawing permafrost on land releases large quantities of greenhouse gases.
The world's northernmost nuclear power plant will start operating once connected to the local electricity grid.

The nuclear reactor Akademik Lomonosov is 144-metre long weighs 21,000 tons and has two reactors.
Wind turbines will pump seawater to the surface which will be frozen into “snow” to weigh the sheet down.
It was a young female fox, that went out to discover the world and survived the Arctic in her first attempt.
the Arctic is an ocean surrounded by land which id different from Antarctica that is a continent surrounded by oceans,
Like other greenhouse gases, ozone also affects how heat is reflected or absorbed near the Earth's surface.
Here is a breakdown of the functioning and participation of the Arctic Council that looks after Arctic states.
Climate change leading to rise in temperatures will effect the final dotted line of the world.
Mercury plunges to 'life-threatening temperatures' in US midwest; Chicago makes special arrangements for homeless
A brutal cold wave hit the American Midwest on Wednesday, bringing temperatures lower than those in Antarctica, grounding flights, closing schools and businesses — and raising fears of hypothermia.
