The melting of ice sheets and permafrost easily eroded soil could destabilize the delta of the North Pole, new research shows.

According to a new study in the journal Geophysical Research Lenses, sea ice and frosty soil are working to stabilize channels in the North Pole Delta.

The glacier is expected to decline in the North Pole, while permanent melting of ice along the banks of the Arctic is expected due to climate change.

The new study found that these changes could destabilize the delta in the far north of the world, making it less resistant to sea-level rise, and the less stable delta could also affect Arctic ecosystems.

Previous research on the Arctic River Delta found that the frosty soil along the banks of the rivers affected the erosion rate of the river bank and thick ice sheets led to the flow of a strait river.

The authors of the study found that when the ice sheet is more stable along the banks of the river, the delta of the river tends to have deeper and more stable channels and transfer sediments to the ocean.
