As global temperatures increase, parts of the Antarctica Peninsula appear to have “green snow” caused by blooming algae. Warming temperatures due to climate change are helping the formation and spread of “green snow” visible from space, according to new research led by Dr Matt Davey from Cambridge University, in the video “Climate change turns Antarctica’s snow green“, below:
Australian researchers say Antarctica’s climate is changing at an alarming rate, from melting ice to warming temperatures. But as there isn’t a lot of historical data available, it’s difficult to simply blame global warming, or understand precisely why. They say questions that need to be answered are: why and how these changes might impact the rest of the planet, in the video “Climate change turning Antarctica green, but why?“
Scientists have created the first ever large-scale map of microscopic algae as they bloomed across the surface of snow along the Antarctic Peninsula coast. Results indicate that this ‘green snow’ is likely to spread as global temperatures increase, in the video “Green Antarctica“, below:
Ice-free areas in Antarctica could expand by close to 25 per cent by 2100 and drastically change the biodiversity of the continent, research published today in Nature has shown, in the video “Climate change may cause huge expansion to ice-free areas across Antarctica“, below:
Scientists think they know why some icebergs are emerald, in the video “Antarctica’s Bizarre Green Icebergs“, below:
The frozen continent of Antarctica may be far from the world’s population centers – but what happens in the rest of the world is having a big impact there. Roxana Saberi traveled to the region with researchers to see what must be done to protect the area, in the video “How climate change is impacting Antarctica’s ecosystem”, below:

Few places on Earth are as remote as the German research facility Neumayer Station III. The scientists who work at this outpost in Antarctica are studying the effects of climate change — under extreme conditions, in the video “Climate change in the Antarctic, DW Documentary“, below:
Antarctica is turning green due to the climate crisis and the phenomenon is potentially offering sustenance to other species according to the first large-scale algae map of the peninsular by University of Cambridge scientists, in the video “Antarctica: microscopic algae turning snow green could create new ecosystem“, below:
An expedition drilling into the sea-floor near the South Pole has discovered the root network of an ancient forest. It reveals surprisingly high temperatures in the Antarctic during the Cretaceous period, and the existence of a rich, temperate rainforest just 900km from the Pole, in the video “An Ancient Antarctic rainforest“, below:
