    The article focuses on polar bear's survival in the face of climate warming. The gradual melting of the ice habitats of polar bears in the Arctic regions is pointed out to have profound negative effects on the animals. Due to the early breakup of ice, related data have shown a decline in the...

    A band of cooling that extends across mid-latitude Eurasia is identified in the wintertime surface air temperatures of the latest ECMWF reanalysis. This cooling is related to extreme warming around the Kara Sea through changes in the meridional temperature gradient. Surface temperatures in the...

    The areal extent, concentration and thickness of sea ice in the Arctic Ocean and adjacent seas have strongly decreased during the recent decades, but cold, snow-rich winters have been common over mid-latitude land areas since 2005. A review is presented on studies addressing the local and remote...
