Ice melting in the Arctic

For the fourth consecutive summer, the rate of ice melting in the Arctic reaches record values

The area of the polar cap now stands at 4.6 million square kilometers, which is almost 1.6 million square kilometers less than the average values of 20 years ago.

The reason for the reduction in the area of ice this year, according to researchers, could be strong summer rains in the Arctic, whose relatively warm waters could accelerate the melting of the ice cap.
