Arctic Sea Ice Loss Not a Major Factor in Weather Extremes in the Lower Latitudes

There’s no doubt that Arctic sea ice is melting. However, new research finds little evidence supporting the idea that Arctic sea ice loss is a major factor behind weather extremes at lower latitudes. Research published in the Journal of Climate finds that sea ice loss accounts for only a small percentage of the warming in the Arctic atmosphere that

Better Forecasts for Sea Ice Under Climate Change

University of Adelaide-led research will help pinpoint the impact of waves on sea ice, which is vulnerable to climate change, particularly in the Arctic where it is rapidly retreating. Published today in the Proceedings of the Royal Society A, the research reports the first laboratory experiments testing theoretical models of wave activity in frozen oceans.

GOCE Reveals Gravity Dip from Ice Loss

Although not designed to map changes in Earth’s gravity over time, ESA’s extraordinary satellite has shown that the ice lost from West Antarctica over the last few years has left its signature. The strength of gravity at Earth’s surface varies subtly from place to place owing to factors such as the planet’s rotation and the

2014 Arctic Sea Ice Minimum Sixth Lowest on Record

 BOULDER, Colo., Sept. 22, 2014—Arctic sea ice coverage continued its below-average trend this year as the ice declined to its annual minimum on Sept. 17, according to the NASA-supported National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) at the University of Colorado, Boulder.

Sensors Help Track the Breakup of Arctic Summer Sea Ice

As sea ice begins to melt back toward its late September minimum, it is being watched as never before. Scientists have put sensors on and under ice in the Beaufort Sea for an unprecedented campaign to monitor the summer melt.
