Using satellite data researchers find effect of melting Arctic sea ice has greater impact on global warming than expected

Melting Arctic Sea Ice Causing More Warming Than Expected

Scientists have long modeled the expected warming due to the decreased albedo effect as melting Arctic sea ice exposes more open ocean. As early as the 1960’s climate researchers have predicted how this phenomenon will amplify global warming. Arctic ice melt, albedo and global warming Albedo is measured as a percentage, in this case the percentage of solar radiation a…
