GENICHESK. TAVRIA. Scientists concluded in their study that the melting of polar ice leads to changes in the rate of rotation of the Earth, which affects the global calculation of time, reports Nature.

It is noted that the data from satellites mapping Earth’s gravity showed that accelerated melting of ice in Greenland and Antarctica led to the fact that the angular velocity of the Earth's rotation decreased in a shorter period of time than before.

According to scientists, this will create an unprecedented problem for synchronizing computer networks.

"Global warming is already affecting global timekeeping. It may be necessary to make changes to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) earlier than planned," said the publication.

The article concludes that global warming and timekeeping have become inextricably linked and it is possible that this link will only increase in the future.
