Cracking the secret of holes in Antarctic ice | Naked Scientists
Holes, thousands of square kilometres in size, were found in the Antarctic ice in 2016 and 2017. The formation of these holes affects how heat is distributed in local ecosystems, carbon release from the region, and ultimately global climate. But why did they form in the first place? Ethan Campbell, a graduate student in oceanography at the UW, is quoted.
