We all know that the water in nature is connected regardless of its form: liquid, solid or gas and now scientists tell us melting ice means more rain.
- The glaciers are melting in the Arctic sea
- This Christmas might be rainy
- Humidity increases by almost 20 percent for each degree
The climate change is all over the news and global warming is something which people finally admit to be happening. Therefore, the melting of ice in the Arctic Sea is no news, or at least not something too surprising.
Temperatures have been constantly rising lately and this Christmas is probably not going to be as white and shiny as we would like. On the contrary, scientists predict it would most likely be wet and gloomy.
The reason behind the future rainy days is
the ice melting in the Arctic. It leads to precipitation and with the strong winds that have been registered in those parts of the world it is very probable our country will get soaked.
Although so far, this hasn’t been considered a climate change problem, scientists believe it could affect temperatures just as much as carbon dioxide would.
Although we know that after a few really hot days, at least one rainy day will come, because for example water in lakes turns into vapors, which turn into clouds which then turn again into water as rain. However, the process is mostly and usually a local one. But now, the changes taking place at the Pole are so massive that they won’t have effect only on that area.
Glaciers are very big and they are melting at a very fast pace, despite their size. As soon as the ice turns into water, evaporation starts and eventually leads to precipitation. What scientists are trying to figure out is the speed at which this process is happening. If they are successful they could manage to predict not just weather but also the effects this has on global warming in general and exactly how fast the climate of our planet is changing.
The level of moisture coming from the Arctic is increasing by almost 20 percent for each Celsius degree. This will help scientists measure the quantity of precipitation we should be expecting in the future, although they are not very sure yet if it’s going to be rain or snow.
