Scientists are investigating the appearance of pink snow in the Presena Glacier in the Italian Alps.
- The pink snow is caused by algae which could cause the snow to melt more rapidly as it absorbs more heat.
- The phenomenon did not appear for the first time, however, it might signal climate change if it starts to happen more frequently.
- Biagio Di Mauro (Italy’s National Research Council) mentioned that the link with climate change is yet to be proven.
