These cute fuzzy green moss ‘mice’ float through the Arctic

For decades, scientists have been fascinated and fascinated by small, blurry moss balls that slowly move over arctic glaciers. Now we know more about how these “glacier mice” travel together. Although several reports have been submitted in which these mossy spheres have been observed, very little research has been carried out on how they move and how they develop – …

Climate change could mean that Antarctica turns green with algae

The algal bloom that covers parts of Antarctica’s snow cover in summer is likely to expand as the planet warms, researchers say in a new study. A research team from the University of Cambridge and the British Antarctic Survey used satellite data and field observations to create the first large-format map of green algae on the coast of the Antarctic …

Green snow in Antarctica: that’s why it happens

The snow in the Antarctic is turning green. And that’s not cool. At least not According to a recent CNN report because it is said that green snow is caused by blooming algae. And these blooming algae are caused by rising temperatures and are likely to spread with advancing climate change. Scientists are said to have used satellite data collected …

Antarctica has green snow due to the warming temperatures

SHUT DOWN In summer, parts of the Antarctic turn light green, while algae bloom over the surface of the melting snow. Buzz60 Antarctica’s snow is turning green and scientists say climate change could be to blame. According to a study published in the peer-reviewed Nature Communications, microscopic algal blooms above the snow surface are slowly turning the wintry, white Antarctic …

Climate change is leading to an increase in green snow in Antarctica

The satellite data collected between 2017 and 2019, combined with measurements on the ground over two summers in Antarctica, enabled scientists to map the microscopic algae as they bloomed over the snow on the Antarctic Peninsula. Warming temperatures could create more “habitable” environments for the algae where wet snow must grow, researchers told CNN. Green snow algae are microscopic when …

Climate change is turning parts of Antarctica green, but it’s not grass

Parts of the Antarctic Peninsula will change color as the “green snow” caused by blooming algae is expected to spread with increasing global temperatures, as studies on Wednesday showed. Although Antarctica is often considered plant-free, there are several types of algae in Antarctica that grow on slushy snow and suck carbon dioxide from the air. Researchers from the University of …

Climate change that turns the snow green of Antarctica

Parts of the Antarctic Peninsula change color to “green snow” caused by blooming algae. London: Antarctica conjures up images of an unbroken white wilderness, but algal blooms give parts of the frozen continent an increasingly green sheen. Warming temperatures due to climate change contribute to the formation and spread of “green snow” and are so productive in places that, according …
