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.
Over a 13-year period, almost a thousand flights surveyed land and sea ice across the Arctic, Antarctic, and Alaska, providing unique insights into how the polar regions are changing.
An ongoing project in northern Alaska is using pulses of laser light to monitor anthropogenic activity, ice quakes, and marine wildlife.
Every summer, most of the sea ice near Antarctica melts away, but its saltiness leaves a permanent record that scientists can trace back for millennia.
Researcher Jackie Richter-Menge has reported on the status of the melting Arctic for the past 15 years. Her observations tell a story of “mind-blowing change.”
