Some scholars have attributed this phenomenon to the large mass of algae "lost" in the decrease in salinity due to the inflow of fresh water from rivers, but other researchers do not agree with this and said that this phenomenon is related to seismic factors.

A team of researchers from the University of Kerala, who study these phenomena, reported that foul smell was

Climate warming has increased algal cover in the fjords of Svalbard

The warming of the Arctic climate changes started in the bottom of the two ecosystems fjords of Svalbard. For 30 years, the area of algal cover these areas increased five to eight times, according to researchers.

Norwegian scientists observed ecosystem Kongsfjord Smeerenburgforda and the west of the West Spitsbergen in the period from 1980 to 2010. During this time, the average surface temperature of water increased by 0.5 degrees, and the summer, free from snow, increased by 3.3 days per year.

Changes in ecosystems fjords have been observed in the last 15 years. Prior to 1995, algal cover in

Warming in the Arctic fjords of Svalbard sowed algae

Climate change in the Arctic has led to dramatic changes in benthic ecosystems of the two fjords of Spitsbergen — in particular, in the last 30 years, the area of algal cover their increased five to eight times, say the authors of an article published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The team, led by Suzanne Korch (Susanne Kortsch) from the University of Tromso (Norway) analyzed data on the state of benthic ecosystems Kongsfjord Smeerenburgforda and the west of the island Spitsbergen in 1980-2010 years. In this period, according to their data, the average surface temperature
