 Polynya is a geographical term that is used to describe an area of unfrozen water surrounded by a large area of sea ice.  Researchers at the NYU Abu Dhabi Institute have discovered an atmospheric trigger for the occurrence of the Maud-Rise Polynya that appeared in September 2017 in the Lazarev Sea.  A much larger Polynya was spotted in the same location in 1974 and may also have had an atmospheric trigger.  Researchers have found that when intense cyclones occur over the ice pack, a mid-sea Polynya in a preconditioned oceanographic area can be initiated as the cyclonic winds push the ice in opposite directions away from the cyclone center.  The Maud Rise Seamount preconditions the near-surface ocean waters such that warm, deep water is brought close to the surface above the seamount.
