An example of a positive feedback loop Warming leads to a decrease in sea ice cover which in turn leads to a decrease in albedo over the ocean, the result of which is further warming and further decreases in the sea ice cover

Sources Title (cont.)In the reverse situation, if sea ice cover, and hence albedo, were to increase, the feedback would lead to cooler air temperatures, thus promoting greater sea ice cover. In either case, the feedback loops are positive, i.e. the change is am
