Learn about the effects of climate change on ice melting and river levels

Between events a new global report was revealed Climate Summit Currently in Glasgow, Scotland, Arctic sea ice is at its lowest level in March, below the 1981-2010 average.

Sea ice in the Lapteau Sea and eastern Greenland Sea areas declined sharply in June and early July, resulting in a record low in Arctic sea ice in the first half of July.

According to the report, there was a slowdown in melting in August, with the lowest in September (after summer) being 4.72 million square kilometers more than in recent years, and the twelfth ice satellite record. At 43 years, this is well below the 1981-2010 average. The extent of sea ice in the eastern Greenland Sea has greatly decreased.

Ice cover in the Antarctic Ocean generally showed to be close to the 1981-2010 average, reaching a maximum by the end of August.

In glaciers and glaciers, the massive loss of glaciers in North America over the past two decades has more than doubled in 2015-2019 compared to 2000-2004. Extremely hot and dry summers in western North America in 2021 have severely affected the region’s mountain glaciers.

He showed that the extent of Greenland ice sheet melting was close to the long-term average at the beginning of summer. But as a result of the massive influx of hot and humid air in mid-August, the temperature and melted water in August 2021 were much higher than normal.

On August 14, he commented that several hours of rain had been observed at the summit station, the highest point in the Greenland Glacier (3,216 m), and that the air temperature had risen above freezing for about nine hours. It has not yet been reported that it will rain at the summit.

This is the third time in the last nine years that the summit has experienced melting, and IceCore records indicate that there has been only one melting event in the twentieth century.
