Thinning Arctic Sea Ice Leads To Phytoplankton Bloom

3 ratings | 332 views
New research suggests that phytoplankton is blooming in arctic waters below sea ice. Due to rising temperatures in the Arctic, skylights are forming in sea ice that allow sunlight to pass through the ice and into the waters below. With similar conditions covering 30-percent of the ice-covered Arctic Ocean, micro-algae is booming as a result. But the team of researchers were stunned to discovery a sprawling bloom of the microscopic plants. But sea ice has thinned as average annual temperatures continue to rise. The researchers found that meltwater pools on top of the ice that allow light to pass through are becoming more prevalent. https://www.sciencenews.org/article/thinning-ice-creates-undersea-arctic-greenhouses http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
