How does the loss of sea ice affect the waters?



  1. 0 Votes

    When sea ice melts it can change the salinity content of the surrounding ocean waters. This, in the long term, could effect what species are able to inhabit the sea in such areas. This does not change the overall salinity of the world’s oceans because it is balanced by evaporation in other areas, it only changes the immediate area surrounding melting sea ice.
