Improving the representation of surface emissivity in the Community Earth System Model reduces its Arctic winter cold bias from 7 to 1 Kelvin degree.
In Sweden’s wet heathland, scientists see how a sensitive ecosystem adapts to rising global temperatures.
Physical parameters may help scientists extrapolate Arctic carbon soil losses from the local to the regional scale, according to the results of a yearlong incubation experiment.
New findings highlight the need to account for large amounts of ground ice contained in frozen soil when assessing Arctic carbon cycling.
Climate change could spur greenhouse gas release from the Arctic. A new project will synthesize existing data to improve uncertain predictions.
Salty snow throws off satellite-based estimates of Arctic sea ice thickness by up to 25%. A new method seeks to fix that.
On-the-ground measurements are notoriously difficult in the harsh environment of the Arctic, but satellites could help close the gap in measuring sea surface salinity.

Significant spatial and temporal patterns emerge from the first pan-Arctic comparison of oxygen demand in marine sediments.
Aircraft measurements confirm that methane emissions from northern European wetlands exhibit a uniform regional carbon isotopic signature, despite considerable ground-level heterogeneity.
