August 7, 2013. According to Australian biologists, the melting of ice in Antarctica leads to the fact that the surface of the ocean floor becomes more exposed to the sun. As a result, underwater polar ecosystems may be "absorbed" algae.
Animals that live in the waters of the Arctic and Antarctic, most of their lives in the dark. Sea ice prevents the penetration of sunlight into the water in the spring and early summer, and in winter the sun and all completely disappears behind the horizon. Thus, the only time when these creatures can see the sunlight - late summer and early autumn, the TV channel Read more [...]
