They might be tens of thousands of kilometers apart, but ice coverage at the North and South Poles may be more closely related than once thought. Scientists have tapped into geological records to model historical ice sheet changes at either end of the globe and, for the first time, demonstrated how the melting of one has influenced the other over the past 40,000 years.
