The ice melts so fast that scientists had to abandon their polar station

The ice melts so fast that scientists had to abandon their polar station A group of Russian scientists had to abandon their polar station near Svalbard when the ice their station was standing on started to melt away, three months too early.

The polar station was placed on a huge flake of ice last year and the scientists expected to be able to stay on the station for one year. But now, after only nine months, the once so huge flak of ice had melted from 15 to 0,12 square kilometres forcing the scientists to abandon their polar station.

It's clearly not easy being a polar scientist these days!
