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.”
Feast your eyes on Beast, the first remotely operated vehicle to brave the Arctic for 1 year.
A “timelines of risk” model shows when and where population collapse begins as sea ice wanes in our warming future.
New research suggests an atmospheric connection between Arctic sea ice melt and anthropogenic aerosol pollution over the Tibetan Plateau.
Geoengineering strategies to slow sea ice melting would affect not only Earth’s climate but also the biology and chemistry of the oceans, atmosphere, and ice.
New research reveals that tiny single-celled organisms in the Arctic Ocean are growing more numerous as climate change thins the ice.
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.
Global climate models do not reproduce observed trends of the Southern polar ocean surface, but an increase in wind-transported sea ice that melts and inhibits mixing may account for the disparity.
El derretimiento del hielo significa que los fuertes vientos del Ártico están creando corrientes más energéticas en el giro de Beaufort.
