By combining demography data with permafrost maps, researchers provide a first count of the population on permafrost and predict its imminent decline.
The increase may be due to climate change, researchers suggest, but the trend hasn’t been observed in other lightning data sets.
A new book explores the geophysical processes that have shaped Iceland over 30 million years and continue to influence the landscape.
New instruments in the research tool kit bolster scientific understanding of the ecology of a greening Arctic.
Sea ice area in CMIP6 is similar to previous versions while its sensitivity to external forcing is subtly different and closer to observations, but still not in step with global surface temperature.
Analysis of a disrupted SOS signal during an early polar expedition showcases the importance of taking space weather into account when exploring new frontiers.
Changes in rates of Arctic coastal erosion detected from multi-decadal measurements are attributed to the shorter duration in the winter sea ice coverage and large-scale changes in the wind patterns.
New satellite instruments and data, plus a more comprehensive observing network, are key to increasing our understanding of past and future change in the Arctic Boreal Zone.
A new summary of past Arctic climate conditions gives insight into anthropogenic influences on today’s climate and on the need for future drilling studies to further improve our understanding of the past.
A never-before-published data set from the Cold War could help scientists unravel the mysterious western Arctic Ocean.
