Paper Abstract

The hypothesis to explain observed warming climate is proposed. It is assumed that land existed in the past at the location of the Arctic Ocean, which lowered under the weight of the Arctic ice sheet. As a result of the lowering the altitude of the land, ocean began to wash the glacier, which led to its melting. Nowadays, the final stage of the process is observed. Melting of outer polar regions of the Northern Hemisphere ice is the main cause of the observed warming. The details of the proposed mechanism and a number of additional effects are discussed.
