Arctic Ice More Vulnerable to Sun

There are 2 comments on the RedOrbit story from Apr 21, 2008, titled Arctic Ice More Vulnerable to Sun. In it, RedOrbit reports that:

“The sunshine reaching the Arctic is increasingly influential, as there is less ice to reflect it back into space. Dry, sunny conditions in a single summer can now act as a potent force to melt sea ice.”

The shrinking expanse of Arctic sea ice is increasingly vulnerable to summer sunshine, new research concludes. via RedOrbit
