Check Out This Eye-Opening Animation of Polar Ice MeltingThe Earth Site
The Earth is a living organism that we all must treasure. Evidence of this can be found in the vibrant life cycle of ice growth and melting, which this video captures in stunning animation. The cycle starts during the winter season, when ice grows thick. When summer hits, it may completely melt away.
Sea ice is incredibly valuable because it reflects the sun’s rays and helps regulate the temperature of the ocean. A major example of this critical role was found recently with the Greenland ice sheet.
