“Heat dome” will be formed next week over the Arctic ocean and accelerate the melting of ice. So the weatherman is also called high pressure. This was told by the employee of the Finnish Institute of meteorology Mika Rantanen.

“These events are characterized by a warm air mass and clear skies, and it significantly accelerates the melting of sea ice”, – quotes the forecaster to RIA Novosti.

Information about the formation over the Arctic anticyclone was confirmed in the Hydrometcentre of Russia. Extensive melting of multi-year ice is a consequence of global climate change, which occurs in high latitudes. This phenomenon has been observed for the first year, noted scientific Director of the center Roman Vilfand.
