surface albedo

ice sheet elevation

CO2

sea level

ocean circulation

vegetation change

Click and drag

growth of ice impacts vegetation and thus CO2 levels

ice reflects sunlight, cooler air makes more snow and ice (negative feedback)

more ice melt means there is more water

increased precipitation at higher altitudes

temperature distribution around the earth influences the amount of melting and therefore the cold currents in the ocean

ice does not absorb CO2 so there can be cooling of the atmosphere
