Climate change is making itself felt more and more with different effects in different parts of the world. While the climate change in our country can be a good example, it is one of the places that are most affected by this situation. polar regions and naturally come glaciers.
Changes due to climate change in both the North Pole and the South Pole are constantly being studied and analyzed. scenarios for the future states of the polar regions is being evaluated. According to a new study, it is found in the Arctic region, which is shown as the oldest and thickest ice sheet of the North Pole. ‘the last ice zone’ revealed that he was also at risk.
The region was thought to be a future ‘shelter’ for arctic animals:
Located in northern Greenland, this region has a very thick ice sheet, and scientists predict that this region will increase in the future when glacier meltdown increases. a special area for animals to take shelter thought it might be. The thickness of the ice level in the region, even in summer indicated that this ice would not melt, which is why the area was called the ‘last ice zone’.
However, in the summer of 2020, the eastern part of the last ice zone Wandel Sea has lost 50% of its ice sheet.This was the largest drop observed in many years. Contrary to the climate models developed so far, the studies carried out are within the current information. remarks that the last glacial region is at great risk of melting showed.
In this case a big problem for species that depend on ice for their survival. Animals living in the polar regions face many risks due to the change experienced for many years. In scenarios where the glaciers melt completely, these animals they do not have a chance to continue their lives.
