We now have yet another peer-reviewed paper that ties the recent arctic and glacier ice melting to dust rather than temperatures. You’ve read that contention on this blog here, here, and here just to provide three of the numerous examples.
MIAMI — A University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science-led study shows a link between large dust storms on Iceland and glacial melting.
The dust is both accelerating glacial melting and contributing important nutrients to the surrounding North Atlantic Ocean. The results provide new insights on the role of dust in climate change and high-latitude ocean ecosystems.
Glad to see these findings confirmed elsewhere.
