Traces of Giant, 2,700-Year-Old Solar Storm Detected in Greenland Ice

An extreme form of solar storm, known as a solar proton event (SPE) struck our planet in 660 BCE. If an event of such magnitude were to happen today, it would likely wreak havoc on our technological infrastructure.

Greenland’s ice is melting four times faster than thought

New science suggests Greenland may be approaching a dangerous tipping point, with implications for global sea-level rise.

Massive impact crater discovered in Greenland

An international team has discovered a 31-km wide meteorite impact crater buried beneath the ice-sheet in the northern Greenland. This is the first time that a crater of any size has been found under one of Earth.

Massive Iceberg Threatens Greenland Village

The fate of one small Greenland town depends on which direction the winds blow. They're the only thing standing between the town of Innaarsuit and a 11-million-ton iceberg that floated dangerously close to shore.

Scientists Capture 4-mile Iceberg Breaking in Greenland

A team of NYU scientists has captured on video a four-mile iceberg breaking away from a glacier in eastern Greenland. This phenomenon, known as "calving", is a force behind the rise of global sea water levels.

Greenland's strange 'Dark Zone' is becoming a huge problem

The Dark Zone is a stripe of fast-melting ice towards the south-west of the ice sheet. This speedy melting is actually bad news for the planet, especially the areas bound to be affected by a sea level rise.

Life on Earth Emerged Millions of Years Earlier Than We Thought

Researchers working in Greenland have found traces of microbial life in our planet's most ancient rocks. The discovery pushes back the oldest evidence of life on Earth by about 220 million years, showing just how habitable our planet was during its earliest stages.
