Cool summer of 2013 boosted Arctic sea ice

20 julio 2015

The volume of Arctic sea ice increased by a third after the summer of 2013 as the unusually cool air temperatures prevented the ice from melting, according to scientists. This suggests that the ice pack in the Northern hemisphere is more sensitive to changes in summer melting than it is to winter cooling, a finding which will help researchers to predict future changes in its volume.img src=»» height=»1″ width=»1″ alt=»»/
