On the Radar: Arctic Sea Ice Melt: Next week, Arctic sea ice may melt to its smallest size since data collection...

Next week, Arctic sea ice may melt to its smallest size since data collection began in 1979, according to the lead scientist at the National Snow and Ice Data Center. The summer of 2007 holds the record for sea ice melt, when the minimum area of the Arctic sea ice recorded was 39 percent smaller than the average minimum from 1979 to 2000. [Reuters] Researchers have found that Greenland’s ice sheet is getting darker , probably as a result of surface melting events. When the grains of snow that make up the ice sheet melt they enlarge, which leads them to absorb more sunlight. The more sunlight the ice sheet absorbs, the more it will melt. [ScienceNOW] Scientists with the American Chemical Society report that they’ve made advances in developing solar panels that are made of more plentiful and economical products. The scientists’ new photovoltaic cells are made of materials li...
