Global warming is making Antarctica go green

May 20, 2020 19:09 IST

The pristine whites of Antarctica are starting to go green as blooms of algae are giving parts of the continent a green hue. Researchers from the University of Cambridge and the British Antarctic Survey say warmer weather due to climate change are the reason behind this green snow phenomenon which is even visible from space. They used data collected over 2 years by the European Space Agency. Turns out green is not the colour that's cropping in the frozen continent researchers are now planning to take on similar studies on red and orange algae.
