Antarctica On World Map

Researchers map ‘beginning of new ecosystem’ as algae bloom across surface of melting snow Scientists have created the first large-scale map of microscopic algae on the Antarctic peninsula. The map showed the surface turning green and potentially creating a source of nutrition for other Warming temperatures due to climate change are helping the formation and spread of “green snow” and it is becoming so prolific in places that it is even visible from space, according to new research

We usually think it will be bright white, but in parts of coastal Antarctica the snow takes on a bizarre shade of green. That’s a color we may be seeing more of as a warming climate impacts the land Researchers from the University of Cambridge and the British Antarctic Survey created a map of green snow algae along the Antarctic Peninsula coast.

Scientists are learning just how fast the ice margin of Antarctica can retreat in a warming world. They’ve identified features on the seafloor that indicate the ice edge was reversing at rates of up Scientists have created the first ever large-scale map of microscopic algae as they bloomed across the surface of snow along the Antarctic Peninsula coast. Results indicate that this ‘green snow’ is

Antarctica On World Map : Microscopic algae are turning Antartica green and the phenomenon could create a new ecosystem, according to a study by the University of Cambridge Antarctica conjures images of an unbroken white wilderness but blooms of algae are giving parts of the frozen continent an increasingly green tinge. Green snow created by blooming algae in the Antarctic Peninsula is likely to spread as temperatures increase as a result of climate change, researchers have said, after creating the first large-scale .
