The area known as the Sphinx (in Portuguese, “The Sphinx”) in Scotland has completely lost the century-old snow that covered Mount Preriach in the Kierngormus Range in Scotland. According to Ian Cameron, a historian in the area, the layer of ice recorded in the book “The Vanishing Eyes” has completely disappeared.
He explored the area for more than 25 years, noting that in the last 170 years, other melting has taken place, such as 1933, 1959, 1996, 2003, 2006, 2017, and 2018. The thing is, there is only a small part.
That said, it is a big challenge for this to happen so often. “The warmest and warmest climate seems to be the most logical explanation for climate change (…) In research we see smaller reefs and less snow. Now there is less snow in the winter than in the 1980s. In the winter. In the 1990s,” he declared in an interview with the Scottish BBC.
The Sphinx area is named after the nearby climbing path and is traditionally called the ‘most durable’ ice in the UK. According to Cameron’s own research, snow has accumulated less and less since the 1980s, which was commissioned by the Kearnorms National Park Authority last year. The results suggest that by 2080 the mountains may or may not have snow.
