Antarctic Sea Ice is Nearly 1000,000.00 Sq Kms Above Normal!
New paper finds more melting causes less melting in Antarctica: 'A new study published in Nature Geoscience attempts to explain the 'paradox' of record high Antarctic sea ice extent, proposing that melting ice creates a shield against warmer ocean layers below. According to the hypothesis, 'build-up of cold melt water may result from a negative feedback effect in which cooler ocean water protects sea ice from melting, which would, in turn, help offset greenhouse warming.' -- Reaction: 'Apparently the physical properties of water differ between the Arctic and Antarctic /sarc'
