Dogs seem to run on water as sleds traverse flooded sea ice.
Climate researcher Steffen Olsen captured this stunning image of a dog sled traversing sea ice covered with meltwater to retrieve scientific equipment in northwest Greenland. “Communities in #Greenland rely on the sea ice for transport, hunting and fishing,” said Olsen. “Extreme events, here flooding of the ice by abrupt onset of surface melt, call for an incre[a]sed predictive capacity in the Arctic.” (STEFFEN M.
