In 2019, an international team of scientists discovered a lake on the Ameri ice shelf in East Antarctica containing approximately 600-750 million cubic meters of water flowing through the ice into the ocean. However, we won't see him again.
Frozen methane deposits are being released in the Arctic Ocean, which scientists call the sleeping giants of the carbon cycle. Experts are concerned about this process, as it can greatly affect the climate.
Satellite observations could not resolve a long-standing dispute among scientists about whether the Gulf Stream mixes Atlantic waters or serves as a mechanical barrier to their penetration into each other, then American researchers went to the edge of the current to make their own measurements.
It's no secret that every year the Earth heats up more and more. However, even with a global increase in temperature in the very center of the Atlantic Ocean, there is always a place that, on the contrary, becomes colder. Scientists have dubbed it the cold bubble or global warming hole.
In the Arctic, global warming is developing much faster than the global average.
How to reduce greenhouse gas emissions? In addition to obvious solutions like to stop burning fossil fuels, there are also unexpected proposals. Feed the calves with probiotics, stop pouring water on rice fields and start driving strong alcohol from peas. This is not a joke - together with the platform <a href="https://theoryandpractice.ru/posts/17574-gnat-dzhin-iz-gorokha-neochevidnye-idei-po-snizheniyu-vybrosov-parnikovykh-gazov">" Theories and practices"</a> we retell the theses of eco-friendly proposals from the website of the World Economic Forum.
In June 2019, a photo that the team of the Danish Meteorological Institute took near Greenland flew around the world: sled dogs are driving a sleigh with researchers, being ankle-deep in water from melted glaciers. We publish a selection of images from the Esquire photo editor, illustrating the scale of the melting of the Arctic ice — and its consequences. And at the same time we explain why the Arctic is melting.
In 2018, an international team of scientists led by the British Antarctic Community (BAS) found that not only global warming due to harmful human activity is to blame for the melting of Antarctica's glaciers, but something else.
Climate models that predict the highest rates of warming in the next century have proven to be the most accurate in mapping climate change over the past decade.
NASA has published a video in which, in just a few minutes, it shows how life on the planet has changed over the past 20 years.
