Clouds, particularly at night, have a huge role in the melting of Greenland ice sheet, whether these clouds have snow or liquid. Continue reading Night time clouds have a big role in melting of Greenland Ice Sheet
At the surface of frozen water, even at temperatures below 0 °C, ice’s hexagonal structure breaks down and forms a liquid-like layer that lubricates the surface, allowing figure skaters to spin and glide. Inspired by skating, a team at the Chinese Academy of Sciences has created an anti-icing coating that uses a self-lubricating layer of water between the ice and the sample surface. The team will report its latest results at the APS March Meeting.
Researchers have found significant decline in thick perennial Arctic sea ice that may lead to a chemical reaction causing the deposits of toxic mercury. Continue reading Arctic Sea Ice is declining significantly leading to deposits of toxic mercury
