Antarctica’s land height explains the continent’s slower rate of warming – UPI.com

A new study suggests the Antarctica’s high elevations explain its slower rate of warming.

“On average, warming for the entire Antarctic continent has been much slower than Arctic warming so far,” Marc Salzmann, a researcher at the University of Leipzig’s Institute for Meteorology in Germany, said in a news release. “Moreover, climate models suggest that, by the end of this century, Antarctica will have warmed less compared to the Arctic.”
