We’re not in hot water yet.


I came across an article discussing the temperature of the arctic waters. According to sensors placed into the water, the sea temperature is still right around freezing and therefore can’t be the only thing to blame for the recent breaking of ice. It’s an example of what we’ve been learning in class. There are so many systems interacting when dealing with polar ice caps that you can’t just put the blame on one thing, such as higher water temperatures. Of course this leads to more questions to how the polar caps react to changing climates. This article was published this morning so I’m sure the scientific research is still on going and more information will be gathered soon. A link to the article can be found here.

    You made a very good point. We should not just put the blame on one factor such as higher water temperatures, it could be a number of things creating this occurrence.
