  • Another sign of global warming in the Arctic--new ice formed in areas of open water, thinner than the solid nila ice sheets usually found in the Arctic. Pancake ice is round, allowing for more open water between pancakes, increasing solar absorption and therefore global warming even more. See Pancake Ice Takes Over the Arctic.
