    The article reports on the migration of about 40,000 walruses due to the melting Arctic sea ice in the Russian Arctic. The scientists believe that the melting of Arctic sea ice is a result of global warming, and reveal the reduction of sea-ice thickness by 40% in the last 30 years. As such, the...

    The article discusses research on Mediaeval Warm Period (MWP) and Little Ice Age (LIA) in the central Canadian Arctic Archipelago. It references the study "Sea Ice Variations in the Central Canadian Arctic Archipelago During the Holocene," by L. L. Vare and colleagues, published in a 2009 issue...

    The temporal characteristics of Arctic sea ice extent and area are analyzed in terms of their lagged correlation in observations and a GCM ensemble. Observations and model output generally match, exhibiting a red-noise spectrum, where significant correlation (or memory) is lost within 2--5...

    Recent ocean warming and subsequent sea ice decline resulting from climate change could affect the northward shift of the ecosystem structure in the Chukchi Sea and Bering Sea shelf region (Grebmeier et al., 2006b). The size structure of phytoplankton communities provides an index of trophic...

  • Phytoplankton distribution in the Western Arctic Ocean during a summer of exceptional ice retreat. Coupel, P.; Jin, H. Y.; Ruiz-Pino, D.; Chen, J. F.; Lee, S. H.; Li, H. L.; Rafizadeh, M.; Garçon, V.; Gascard, J. C. // Biogeosciences Discussions;2011, Vol. 8 Issue 4, p6919 

    A drastic ice decline in the Arctic Ocean, triggered by global warming, could generate rapid changes in the upper ocean layers. The ice retreat is particularly intense over the Canadian Basin where large ice free areas were observed since 2007. The CHINARE 2008 expedition was conducted in the...

    Substantial uncertainties have emerged in Arctic climate change projections by the fourth Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change assessment report climate models. In particular, the models as a group considerably underestimate the recent accelerating sea ice reduction. To better understand...

    The article presents the author views on the events witnesses global climate change. It states that after record keeping began in 1880, 2012 has been the warmest year in the contiguous U.S. It further discusses changes that occurs at faster rate in the Earth system including the extent of the...

    The Amundsen Sea low (ASL) is a climatological low pressure center that exerts considerable influence on the climate of West Antarctica. Its potential to explain important recent changes in Antarctic climate, for example, in temperature and sea ice extent, means that it has become the focus of...

    The mid-Pliocene Warm Period (mPWP) bears many similarities to aspects of future global warming as projected by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC, 2007). Both marine and terrestrial data point to highlatitude temperature amplification, including large decreases in sea ice and...
