Artic ice formed about 45 million years ago - roughly 14 million years ahead of previous predictions - according to new research published in Nature. An international team of scientists, including Brown geologist Steven Clemens, says this startling evidence shows that glaciers formed in tandem at Earth's poles, providing important insights into global climate change.
