Subjective analysis of Antarctic polynia by ATS member Ophiuchus 13...
Some things to be considered before analysis.
a) Does the polynia that has formed breach completely through the top ice sheet/shelf surface ice down into the continential shelf ground line?
b) Or does the vertical depth of the polynia stop before fully breaching the lower ice sheet/shelf before touching the ground?
I feel these questions are important in order to better grasp the "activity" going on there.
If the polynia does punch completely down through to the continental shelf there could be various activities causing it so far inland.
Activities such as:
New, forming or now active dormant volcanos releasing large amounts of heat from below the ice sheet/shelf.
The heat source or sources collectively are forming a hole or holes from multiple sub sheet/shelf ice volcanos.
The hole or holes combined heat from multiple heat sources breach the upper ice sheet/shelf above Antarctic continental ground forming the polynia
from continental shelf up to ice sheet/shelf surface...
Or there is some sophisticated intelligent activity going on down there. As a Conspiracy Theorists I will let your imagination decide
The scenario b)
Visualize the ice sheet/shelf horizontally fracturing in various areas. Over time the fractures seal and refill with sea water that freezes.
Now visualize a deep groove formed from a larger again horizontal fracture within the ice shelf that reaches deep into the ice sheet. This fracture
then allows warmer sea water to flow in further inland below the thicker ice shelf/sheet.
Since the warmer sea water is able to flow through the deep horizontal fracture or groove and not be sealed and refrozen the ice above it at a faster
rate melts, forming the polynia further inland perhaps until the sea water below freezes again.
