Climate science and the global shipping industry collide in an ice-poor Arctic.
By solving the nonlinear optimization problem, sea ice concentration in Greenland, Barents and Okhotsk Seas is found crucial for prediction of strong and long-lasting Ural blocking formation.
Recent research offers new insights on Antarctic sea ice, which, despite global warming, has increased in overall extent over the past 40 years.
The forecasting tool IceNet promises to be a useful tool for evaluating sea ice loss in the Arctic. But ethical and logistic considerations have to be taken before scientific and Indigenous communities start working together.
If climate change throws off the seasonal freeze-thaw cycle of Arctic sea ice, it could trigger a reinforcing cycle of sea ice melt in parts of the Canadian Arctic.
Estas intensas tormentas marítimas suponen una amenaza para las comunidades costeras y las actividades económicas de las altas latitudes y puede que influencien el clima y la circulación oceánica.
Last winter, an unprecedented high-pressure system over the Arctic drove nearly a quarter of old sea ice into warmer waters, putting it at greater risk of melting.
These intense maritime storms pose threats to high-latitude coastal communities and economic activities and may influence climate and ocean circulation.
The Siberian river’s creation caused a massive influx of fresh water into the Kara Sea and radically changed the Arctic Ocean and Earth’s climate.
