Warnings about the impact of global warming on the ice of the Arctic


Researchers from the University of Manitoba warned in a recent study that rain could replace snow in parts of the Arctic by 2060 due to climate change and global warming, up to two decades earlier than previously thought, after comparing the latest projections with the results of models. past climatic conditions.
And according to the British newspaper, “Daily Mail”, precipitation levels are increasing in the Arctic, as rising global temperatures are melting increasing amounts of sea ice, adding moisture to the air, and the region is known to be warming faster than most parts of the world. The rest of the world, resulting in major environmental shifts in the region will only get worse.

Increased precipitation over existing snow cover could contribute to the formation of more surface ice, which prevents reindeer from foraging.

And the effects won’t be limited to the Arctic surface. Loss of snow cover reduces Earth’s ability to reflect solar radiation back into space, leading to further warming. Based on the findings, researchers are calling on authorities around the world to introduce more stringent policies to mitigate the effects of climate change. .

Dr Michelle McChrystal, who led the study, said: ‘The changes will be more severe and occur much earlier than expected, and therefore will have huge implications for life in and outside the Arctic.

The researchers found that all forms of precipitation, including rain and snow, are expected to increase in all seasons as a result of global warming, given how the Arctic water cycle may change.
