Card #18: Melting of Sea Ice

Causes Consequences
Front of the card "Melting of Sea Ice"
  • No main consequences


Sea ice melting does not make the sea level rise (just as a melting ice cube does not make a glass overflow).
However, when it melts, it gives way to the much darker sea, which goes on to absorb more sun rays than white ice.

Explanation

For a further explanation of the why of the how, Archimedes and all and everything, see the explanation page.

Facilitation advice

This is the trap in Batch 1 which almost everyone falls into, unless they have read the cards from the start. For this reason, do not ask players to read the cards during batch 1. Instead, tell them that they can try to do it without explanations and once they have fallen into the trap, ask them to read the cards.

  • Radiative forcing When the ice pack melts, a white surface is replaced by a dark blue surface, which has a lower albedo and therefore absorbs more energy. This relationship is not essential but it does allow another feedback loop of the game to be put forward.

Wrong consequences

  • Disruption of the water cycle The melting of the Arctic ice pack, but also the melting of Greenland's glaciers may lead, in the distant future, to a disruption of the thermohaline circulation (which gives rise to the Gulf Stream). But beware, the "Water Cycle" card does not refer at all to the thermohaline circulation.
  • Sea Level Rise The melting of the ice pack is not responsible for the Sea Level Rise.
