Fear of a faster melting process is causing the alarm due to the appearance of the ‘Blood-Red’ Siberian Glacier.

On Monday, Russian scientists cautioned that the crimson red color of a Siberian glacier caused by algae bloom could lead to faster ice melting than the current rate is.

Tomsk State University’s Faculty of Geology and Geography announced that red algae is responsible for covering glaciers in the Altai Mountains near Russia’ s borders with Kazakhstan and Mongolia annually.

Alexander Yerofeyev, the head of TSU’s Laboratory of Glacioclimatology, stated that there has been no evidence of such a significant phenomenon in over 10 years.

A large portion of the Vodopadny glacier was covered in red streaks during the recent expedition, which was captured on video and posted on the university’s YouTube page.
