HISTORY OF THE ICE CAPS MELTING
Transcript of HISTORY OF THE ICE CAPS MELTING
Ice caps, ice sheets, glaciers and sea ice are sustained when the amount of snow falling on them is greater than the ice and snow melting from them.
The degree of ice melt depends on ambient temperature and the ice cap's albedo , or ability to reflect sunlight back into the atmosphere. Albedo denotes the "whiteness" of a surface. During cold climates (or in winter), the ice has a higher albedo value and reflects more sun than it absorbs. How Ice Caps Melt How did it started ? The ice caps melting started from the climate change.
Also by the global warming.
BOTH PROBLEMS WERE CAUSED
BY HUMAN ! The Effects of Ice Melting Temperatures are rising twice as fast in the Arctic than in the rest of the word, according to the National Resources Defense Council.
This is resulting in ice melting at speeds never before seen, causing ice shelves to break off and glaciers to drift in the sea.
Melting ice in the world's coldest regions has profound effects in all parts of the world. Bibliography : http://www.ehow.com
