Seaweed has been discovered in Antarctica!

It was found by a team of researchers, 100 metres beneath the surface. The type of seaweed that was discovered is called Palmaria decipiens. This type of seaweed grows well in low water temperatures.

Scientists say the depth at which the seaweed was found is an exciting discovery. This is because seaweed is known to store carbon.

It is good news because seaweeds play a “huge role” in protecting the environment.

Scientists say this discovery could help with their knowledge of what lies beneath Antarctica and the role it could play in tackling climate change.
