Grade 10 Environmental Science
Which of the following accurately relates the emergent properties of water to the effects of global warming in the Arctic?
  1. Although it is feared that sea ice around Alaska and northern Canada may be greatly reduced by atmospheric warming, the high specific heat of water has so far buffered these sea ice communities from significant impacts.
  2. An increase in water temperature due to global warming will cause the sea ice formed in the Arctic to be denser and less buoyant.
  3. Although a significant increase of air temperature has occurred in the Arctic over the past 50 years, the specific heat of water has thus far buffered against any significant increases in the Arctic ocean temperatures.
  4. The significant increase in Arctic air temperature over the past 50 years is causing sea ice to form later in the year, to melt earlier, and to cover a smaller area each year.
