Super salty water leaking from the Indian Ocean may have helped end the last ice age

Jan 1, 2020
The geological climate of the Earth is still a 2.58-million-year ice age named the Quaternary Glaciation. The Earth is in a warm interglacial period that happens about every 100,000 years and lasts about 10,000 years, alternating with a cold glacial period of about 90,000 years. The name of the interglacial period we are in is the Holocene. The Earth still has around 200,000 glaciers and 11 percent of the land is permafrost. The ice age the Earth is in won't end and the climate won't officially change until all the natural ice melts.
