Polynya is a geographical term that is used to describe an area of unfrozen water surrounded by a large area of sea ice.
Researchers at the NYU Abu Dhabi Institute have discovered an atmospheric trigger for the occurrence of the Maud-Rise Polynya that appeared in September 2017 in the Lazarev Sea. A much larger Polynya was spotted in the same location in 1974 and may also have had an atmospheric trigger.
