Climate change is increasing the frequency of moisture-dumping atmospheric rivers in the Arctic. The storms are pushing back sea ice at a time of year when it should be expanding.
How Thick Is Antarctic Ice, and What Is Underneath?
Scientists used electromagnetic fields to determine the thickness of fast ice.
El derretimiento del hielo marino del océano Ártico potencia las mareas
Si el cambio climático anula el ciclo estacional de hielo y deshielo, se desencadenaría un ciclo de retroalimentación de derretimiento del hielo marino en algunas partes del Ártico canadiense.
Third-Wettest Year in Arctic Wraps Up
The annual Arctic Report Card charts the rise in rain in northern latitudes and serves as a new “vital sign” of the region’s shifting climate.
Satellites Get First Full-Year View of Arctic Sea Ice Thickness
The AI-based monitoring method may unlock data that could improve shipping safety and climate predictions.
Capturing Ocean Turbulence at the Underbelly of Sea Ice
A specially designed instrument enabled researchers in the Arctic to measure turbulence within 1 meter of the interface where ice meets ocean.
Melting Sea Ice May Mean the End of Driftwood in Iceland
Driftwood floats thousands of kilometers from Siberia to Iceland, but it may drift no longer by 2060 due to climate change.
Satellites Remotely Measure Ocean Waves and Sea Ice Interactions
A new method for using satellite observations from multiple sensors improves measurements of ocean waves as they propagate through and interact with sea ice.
Arctic Shipping Routes Are Feeling the Heat
Climate science and the global shipping industry collide in an ice-poor Arctic.
Algal Mats May Be a Key to the Arctic Food Web
Melt ponds in sea ice have thriving algal communities with startlingly high levels of photosynthetic activity.
