Scientists recognize two types of such Antarctic sea ice features, and the main difference between them is the way in which they lose their ice. In September, one of these floats surfaced inside the polynya, providing unique data on its existence.
Researchers from the Princeton-based Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observations and Modelling (SOCCOM) group are conducting a study of the polynya that seeks to answer numerous questions.
Fantastic how the #WeddellPolynya withstands / stears the local #SeaIce dynamic. Moore also said the polynya can't be blamed on climate change since they don't know what's causing the hole to form. The hole opened up again previous year for the first time in four decades, and reappeared, even larger, last month. Most polynyas are reportedly large, and mostly oval-shaped, but irregular ones have been recorded all the same.
It's been open for four months so far in 2017 "and my guess is it will stay open for the rest of winter", Moore added. And this week, a paper in the journal Geophysical Research Letters found that warming oceans are dramatically undermining the integrity of an important floating ice shelf in West Antarctica, Quartz magazine reported.
