It seems possible that naval war influence the flow of warm water in the Fram Strait.

SCIENCE DAILY reported recently (13 December 2009):

        High-resolution computer simulations performed by scientists at the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton (NOCS) are helping to understand the inflow of North Atlantic water to the Arctic Ocean and how this influences ocean climate.

         "We need to understand what is going on because changes in the Arctic Ocean can influence climate around the world," said Dr Yevgeny Aksenov of NOCS.


We would much better understand climate if science and models could explain what had caused the Arctic to warm at the end of WWI, after several years of devastating naval activities in highly sensitive waters that all went north to end up in the Arctic Ocean.
