Heatwave in Kara Sea

Not quite sure what all is going on here but I think excess methane coming up from the peat bogs and thaw lakes have something to do with it. Also, the warmer waters from the peat bogs and thaw lakes are draining into the Arctic Ocean. heating up the Kara and Barents Seas. 

Overall rise in Arctic temperatures are also probably contributing. Siberian fires are probably contributing
