Using dolphin-like robotic gliders, the researchers have uncovered the answer: storm-like underwater eddies (water flows) are to blame. The paper, co-authored by Karen Heywood, Andrew Thompson, and others, sheds light on the exact process. “When you have a melting slab of ice, it can…

(Ward P. 2001) Other organisms, such as salps who feed on phytoplankton similarly to krill would increase in population, which, in turn, would deplete the krill numbers like ocean acidification. Consequently a significant drop in the krill population would be detrimental to the Antarctic ecosystem, and is why renewable resources are imperative to ensure krill growth won 't…
