NASA has shared some shocking images of the highest temperature recorded in Antarctica and the melting snow is threatening.
According to the report, “The warm temperatures arrived on February 5 and continued until February 13, 2020. The images above show melting on the ice cap of Eagle Island and were acquired by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8 on February 4 and February 13, 2020.”
The organization stated that the heat is more in January than in November and the temporary heatwave is the third major melt event for the summer.
It added, “If you think about this one event in February, it isn’t that significant,” said Pelto. “It’s more significant that these events are coming more frequently.“
