NASA announced catastrophic thawing of the Arctic cover


Now more than 70 percent of the Arctic sea ice are the seasonal phenomenon. Scientists of NASA declared almost total disappearance of a long-term Arctic ice cover. Now its place is taken by thin ice. About it it is noted on the website of the agency. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory of NASA says that over 70 percent of the Arctic ice cover are the seasonal phenomenon now. It means that ice thaws in the summer, and grows in the winter. At the same time seasonal ice is much more susceptible to atmospheric conditions. As for the total area of "old" ice ices, it was reduced to two million square kilometers. Growth of ambient temperature causes global disaster and leads to death of the Arctic ecosystem. It concerns not only many animal species, but also and unique microorganisms. Earlier it was reported that rapid thawing of a glacier was shown on videos created from a photo from the satellite.
