‘Mega-bloom’ of tiny plants under Arctic sea ice tied to climate change- largest ever seen on the planet

Posted on June 8, 2012

June 8, 2012 – ARCTIC - Experts were shocked to find a thick, 60-mile-long “phytoplankton mega-bloom” under Arctic sea ice, announcing in a study Thursday that ice made thinner by warming temperatures has, for now at least, created ideal conditions for the microscopic, single-cell plants to flourish. More blooms are likely hidden under the ice, making for “ecological shifts” in Arctic waters that favor some species over others since phytoplankton are the base of the marine food chain, Stanford professor and lead researcher Kevin Arrigo told msnbc.com. Scientists had thought Arctic phytoplankton blooms only happened after sea ice melted in summer, so the discovery is “like finding the Amazon rainforest in the middle of the Mojave Desert,” added Paula Bontempi, who manages the ocean biology program at NASA, which funded the research. The waters literally looked like pea soup,” Arrigo said at a press conference announcing the study in the journal Science. “It was as thick as a 5-year-old child is tall.” The team discovered the bloom in July 2011 in thin sea ice pocketed with ponds of melted ice on the Chukchi Sea off northern Alaska. Arctic sea ice has been shrinking and thinning in summer since 1979, the result of warming temperatures over the region. Those melt ponds proved crucial, allowing just enough light to get the growth process started while also protecting the algae from ultraviolet radiation. Arrigo said in his 25 years of studying phytoplankton blooms he had never seen one this large. Blooms in open water are much smaller, he noted, while very thick ice won’t allow any light in to start photosynthesis. “It’s going to be a more productive system,” Arrigo said, noting that plankton bottom feeders will benefit as the plankton sinks to the bottom of the Chukchi, much of which is around 160 feet deep. -MSNBC [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

This is important: Arctic sea ice has been shrinking and thinning in summer since 1979, the result of warming temperatures over the region. Those melt ponds proved crucial, allowing just enough light to get the growth process started while also protecting the algae from ultraviolet radiation.

The things they are finding in antactica are signs of the earth changes happening. The earth has started the cycle to wash itself clean. We have been witnessing it with all these big storms, earthquakes and soon many eruptions. It is for the better...Terra needs to clean up the scum so it can be pure once again.

"Lake Vostok (Russian: &#1086;&#1079;&#1077;&#1088;&#1086; &#1042;&#1086;&#1089;&#1090;&#1086;&#1082;, lit. "Lake East") is the largest of more than 140 sub-glacial lakes and was recently drilled into by Russian scientists. The overlying ice provides a continuous paleoclimatic record of 400,000 years, although the lake water itself may have been isolated for 15[3][4] to 25 million years.[5]
Lake Vostok is located at the southern Pole of Cold, beneath Russia's Vostok Station under the surface of the central East Antarctic Ice Sheet, which is at 3,488 metres (11,444 ft) above mean sea level. The surface of this fresh water lake is approximately 4,000 m (13,100 ft) under the surface of the ice, which places it at approximately 500 m (1,600 ft) below sea level. Measuring 250 km (160 mi) long by 50 km (30 mi) wide at its widest point, and covering an area of 15,690 km2 (6,060 sq mi), it is similar in area to Lake Ontario, but with over three times the volume. The average depth is 344 m (1,129 ft). It has an estimated volume of 5,400 km3 (1,300 cu mi).[2] The lake is divided into two deep basins by a ridge. The liquid water over the ridge is about 200 m (700 ft), compared to roughly 400 m (1,300 ft) deep in the northern basin and 800 m (2,600 ft) deep in the southern."

This is a FRESH water lake btw.

Peace, DH:)

And we have life found at Lake Vostok:

[link to www.huffingtonpost.com]

"If life is found in the icy darkness, it will provide the best answer yet to whether life can exist on other planets like Mars, Jupiter's moon Europa or Saturn's satellite Enceladus.

"It's like the first flight to the Moon," said Valery Lukin, head of the Russian Antarctic mission, comparing the achievement to the U.S. space race victory over the Soviet Union in 1969.

After 20 years of stop-go drilling, Russia was the first to pierce through 3,769 metres (12,365 ft) of solid ice to Lake Vostok - the largest and most isolated of over 350 known subglacial lakes, untouched for some 15-25 million years.

But the drilling technology it used means Russian scientists will have to go back to collect frozen samples of the lake water for analysis in 2013."

The question for me is...Have they breached it yet and if so...what have they found, or what will they find. I just want someone to give me something viable is all. Is this to hard to ask these days1dunno1
