Aslıhan DOĞRU -TDO- It was announced that the Arctic was warming three times more than the world average.
A study published May 20 by the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP) found that this region is warming much more and faster than thought.
The results of the study were published a week before the Arctic Council Summit in Reykjavik, Iceland.
From 1971 to 2019, the average annual temperature of the Arctic increased by 3.1 degrees, compared to 1 degree for the planet as a whole.
Warming in the region has an immediate impact on the Arctic ecosystem, the report said.
As effects of warming, interpersonal interaction and types of food, changes in feeding routines are observed.
Animal migrations after warming also began to differ.
One of the most worrying transformations, according to the report, is that snowfall in the region is replaced by heavy rainfall and humidity rates increase.
According to studies, the pole is 10 times more likely to disappear completely in summer if the Earth warms 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels.
