I heard that scientists aboard the Academic Shokalskiy (stuck in the ice) are studying global warming Wink

Re: Academic Shokalskiy

yeah funny that a ship studying ice formation slow down due to global warming should be stuck in fast freeze pack ice that required 2 ice breakers and a week to get close enough to helo resupply them ......

Re: Academic Shokalskiy

Whilst the crew are in little danger I wonder if the Ice could damage the ship due to the Ice expanding ?

Re: Academic Shokalskiy

if it does they will just add to the oceanic pollution when they conduct helo evac...
it would also put paid to the idea that the planet is getting warmer (its something that hasn't happened in half a centaury) if the ice formation and expansion rate is fast enough to cause hull damage ........
