Description

Researchers say studies show Arctic sea ice melts faster in areas where more sunlight passes through. The energy penetrating the the ice causes it to melt faster, which thins the ice and results in networks of ponds that allow even more sunlight to pass through, thus melting the ice even faster. Using remotely operated underwater vehicles, scientists have conducted large-scale recordings of the distribution of sunlight beneath Arctic ice. SOURCE: PHY, AWI
