Qaanaaq, in North Greenland, is the world's northernmost naturally inhabited town, with 656 citizens.
Photographer George Steinmetz documents the consequences of climate change from a different perspective in a new short film, "Losing Earth: From the Air."
Eighteen months of reporting. All eight Arctic countries. So many fascinating people. On the final episode of season two of Threshold, we pull back a little and try to see the big picture.
The Greenland ice sheet is basically a giant ice cube the size of Alaska. What happens when it melts? Threshold spent five days camping out on the ice with a team of scientists who are trying to find out.
The Greenland ice sheet helps cool the world, but it's melting. Scientists are trying to learn as much as they can, as fast as they can.
As the Arctic loses ice at dramatic rates, people in Qaanaaq, the northernmost town in Greenland, are finding their homes, livelihoods, customs, and very survival at risk.
The Danish government's push for modernization left many small Greenland hunting communities reeling, and now their women may never return.
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.
Permafrost in Greenland is melting rapidly. The soil is collapsing and affecting the infrastructure and ecosystem.
Greenland is facing a migration pattern that, if it continues, is a matter of national survival: The women are leaving.
A ship enters punishing seas. A plane skims above a heaving ocean. All to determine the origins of the coldest, densest water of the North Atlantic—which fuels the ocean's global circulation system.
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.
Meet journalist Anna Filipova, who is examining how melting permafrost in the northernmost village in Greenland affects the residents' lives.
A frigid current, a heroic expedition, and air turning into rock. Meet science journalist Ari Daniel and hear about his 2018 reporting trip to Iceland.
Photographer Jonas Bendiksen traveled to Greenland to visualize its demographic challenges: As more women than men leave to study or live abroad, there are fewer than nine women for every 10 men.
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.
Grantees Nariman El-Mofty, Shiho Fukada, and Jeffrey E. Stern received OPC awards for their reporting projects, while Amy Martin, Maggie Michael, Maad al-Zikry, and Nariman El-Mofty received citations.
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.
What should environmental reporting accomplish, and what creative approaches can journalists take to meeting their goal? Students reflect on these questions and plan a reporting project of their own.
Indigenous rights and visual literacy take center stage in these activity ideas and classroom resources, using reporting from six countries by Magnum photographers.
