Polar scientists showed a "green" summer in the Antarctic

Ukrainian polar explorers are investigating how climate change affects Antarctic vegetation. For this, they keep records of bushes and their distribution.

Polar scientists from the "Akademik Vernadskyi" station showed a "green" summer in the Antarctic. Shots were made by Serhii Glotov and Dmytro Martynenko.

"Usually, only snow, ice, frost and icicles are associated with Antarctica. But now it's summer there, and at this time the air temperature fluctuates around 0℃," the National Antarctic Science Center said.

By the way, this summer the highest temperature reached +5℃ (January 3), and the lowest dropped to -1.2℃ (January 12). It is under such conditions that the snow melts and Antarctica turns green.

"A unique Antarctic vegetation emerges from under the white blanket," the polar explorers added.

It will be recalled that Harpreet Kaur "Preet" Chandy, a British woman of Indian origin, who works as a physiotherapist and medical officer in the British Army, became the fastest woman to cross Antarctica on skis alone.
