Ice loss on Greenland used to be driven by massive calving glaciers. Now surface melt dominates, driven by sun, dust and the surprising role of microbes.
Climate change has made summers in Greenland warmer and drier, leading to a decline in the number of sheep farms on the island.
Greenland has hundreds of archeological sites that have never been excavated, but a shortage of homegrown archeologists to explore their homeland. A few young upstarts want to change that.
Archaeologists have a new answer to the mystery of Greenland's Norse, who thrived for centuries and then vanished.
Climate scientist Gordon Hamilton died in Antarctica recently when his snowmobile plunged into a deep glacial crevasse. His research in Antarctica and Greenland focused on the relationship between melting ice sheets and rising sea levels.
Scientists in Greenland are using cutting edge technology to track tiny changes to predict what a warmer future might hold for the island's giant ice pack and the rest of the world.
A few of Greenland's biggest glaciers began melting a decade ago. And scientists are trying to puzzle out a mystery story with big consequences for the future of the island's fast-melting ice sheet.
Due to climate change, polar bears are foraging for food in remote villages.
Climate change is for real in Greenland.
Climate change is causing a small hunting village in Greenland to come face to face with an unlikely predator: polar bears.
In Qaqortoq, a small town in Greenland, the common view is that global warming is the best thing to have ever happened to the region.
When the fishermen-hunters from Qaqortoq bring back a whale, the shoppers are happy — whale meat is their favorite dish. Due to international quotas, the village is only allowed two whales per year.
A journey to the Arctic realm of Greenland to explore its future and mysterious past.
Three scientists, two glaciers, one summer. What does melting Arctic ice have to do with volcanoes, sea level rise, and ocean circulation? Getting the data is just the start of the adventure.
Polar bears in Greenland struggle to find food as climate change chips away at Arctic ice. Climatologists say the resulting bear vs. human conflict is a warning for communities worldwide.
Global warming is happening faster around the Arctic Ocean than anywhere else. To adjust to this new climate, local communities must change the way they live and work – for better and for worse.
In the arctic, warmer weather has already reshaped fauna and flora zones, and sea ice melted last year at the highest levels in modern history. In fact, some scientists believe that if such thawing continues, North Pole summers will be ice-free by the end of the century.
Eli Kintisch discusses climate change in Greenland, both in recent years and in the distant past.
Three science teams, two glaciers, one reporter.
Le Monde journalist Yves Eudes discusses his six-part reporting project on climate change in the Arctic.
This week: did economic change contribute to the disappearance of Norse settlements? Discussion of Trump's involvement in the climate agreement, and how refugees cross Europe using their smartphones.
Melting ice and rising seas threaten to displace communities around the world.
