Researchers used radiocarbon dating of eye proteins to determine the ages of 28 Greenland sharks, and estimated that one female was about years old. The former vertebrate record-holder was a bowhead whale estimated to be years old. Greenland sharks are huge and can grow up to 5m in length. Yet, they grow at just 1cm a year.

Jars of dirt taken from a Cold War-era military caper and lost in a freezer for decades could hold crucial new information about climate change and sea level rise. The dirt researchers inspected is a sediment sample from the bottom of an ice core, retrieved by drilling down into the ice sheet that covers the majority of Greenland. There are only a few expeditions that have actually gotten sediment from the bottom of the glacier. This particular sample yielded a lot of plant matter, some of which was visible to the naked eye. Christ and the team behind the study used isotope analyses of various elements that helped the researchers tease out the last time the samples were exposed to the sun and cosmic rays.
