Vamos a la playa!

A new heatwave is currently hitting Europe. In this context, the icy landscapes of the Arctic, Antarctica or the high mountains appear to be the perfect destination to cool down!

As this is not necessarily an option for everyone, we alternatively recommend to find the next river, lake, or ocean and jump in, just like the penguins in the picture above!

This heatwave is also a clear sign that August is not a time for staying in the office in front of the computer but rather to go out, relax, and enjoy the summer.

The EGU Cryosphere Blog’s team says thank you for your support and wishes you a nice August. We will be back with icy news in September!

Clara Burgard is a PostDoc at the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg. She investigates the evolution of sea ice in general circulation models (GCMs). There are still biases in the sea-ice representation in GCMs as they tend to underestimate the observed sea-ice retreat. She tries to understand the reasons for these biases.
