Arctic Ocean freshwater bulge detected

UK scientists have detected a huge dome of freshwater that is developing in the western Arctic Ocean.
The bulge is some 8,000 cubic km in size and has risen by about 15cm since 2002.
The team thinks it may be the result of strong winds whipping  up a great clockwise current in the northern polar region called the  Beaufort Gyre.
This would force the water together, raising sea surface height, the group tells the journal Nature Geoscience.
