% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It seems that for some unknown reason ice is melting in the middle of the Arctic.
At first i thought it might be an error or a glitch for that matter but the opening shows up on 3 different maps 

  1. The Sea Surface Temperature map of the Arctic
  2. The Sea Surface Salinity map of the Arctic
  3. The Ice Thickness map of the Arctic

It has started to show up at the end of september.  It is still there at the moment of writing. 
It has grown in size then got a bit smaller and now it is growing again in size!

I have honestly no idea as to what could be causing this sudden melt in the middle of the Arctic Ice Pack.

I have created a video and uploaded in in you tube!

    Are there by any chance volcanoes under that spot? There are active volcanoes under the ice cap
