It is found in Greenland, but right now writhing naturalists their brain to solve the riddle that has brought forth the pink snow in the Alps in Italy.
more specifically, at the Presena glacier has the pink color taken hold. Therefore, samples naturalist Biagio Di Mauro from Italy's National naturforskningscenter at the time of writing to be wiser in the snow, that is anything but white.

The colored snow comes most likely from the plants that causes the ice to melt faster, why the phenomenon can also be linked back to climate change, reads the explanation from Di Mauro.
- the Plant puppets for the most part up, when the heat in the snow accumulates. And it causes certain organisms to proliferate, says Di Mauro.
It writes The Guardian.

the Plant by the name of Ancylonema nordenskioeldii are also to be found in Greenland by the so-called Dark Zone, where the ice in the higher degree melts more than usual.
the plant Itself contains a rich presence of algae, points to the Italian researcher. However, the source is not just dangerous.
- the Algae is not dangerous, it is a natural phenomenon that especially occurs during the spring or summer, primarily on the middle latitudes but also at the poles, says Di Mauro.
Usually reflect the snow more than 80 percent of the sun's rays back into the atmosphere, but with the appearance of the algae that colors the ice darker, absorbed the sun's rays and thus get the ice to melt faster.
It is in this process that the ice, go and get the pink color, but what specifically makes the snow change color, researchers have yet to be clued in.
