Arctic melt season lengthening, ocean rapidly warming: Study

Last Updated: Tuesday, April 01, 2014, 13:44

The length of the melt season for Arctic sea ice is increasing by several days each decade, and an earlier start to the melt season is allowing the Arctic Ocean to absorb enough additional solar radiation in some places to melt as much as four feet of the Arctic ice cap`s thickness.
