Notebook: Does the Disappearance of Sea Ice Matter?

The melting away of Arctic ice because of climate change won’t raise sea levels, but what it means for the world is one of the big, complicated questions in science right now.

Climate Change Deniers vs Climate Scientists – Who’s Right on Arctic Sea Ice?

In the never-ending non-contest between climate change deniers and climate scientists, there is plenty of gloating to go around. Tossing down the gauntlet once again, Peter Sinclair challenges Joe Bastardi, the King of Climate Change Deniers, to a six-year review of Bastardi’s 2010 prediction on Arctic sea ice behavior.

Ice library to get its first frosty deposit from French mountain

Just a couple of days ago, NASA announced that there is 40 percent less Arctic sea ice in the world than there was in the late 1970s. This followed the news that this January to June represented the hottest months in recorded history. Show More Summary

Global Warming Expedition Stopped In Its Tracks By Arctic Sea Ice

Submitted by Craig Boudreau via The Daily Caller, A group of adventurers, sailors, pilots and climate scientists that recently started a journey around the North Pole in an effort to show the lack of ice, has been blocked from further...Show More Summary

2016, The hottest year so far

last weekNews : The Raw Story

The first six months of 2016 have been the world’s hottest ever on record, according to NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration — the third year in a row to set a record. The heat has caused the Arctic sea ice to contract so rapidly that the ice cover may reach its lowest...

Hottest half-year on record sinks Arctic ice to new lows

Last month, scientists reported an earlier-than-normal annual melting of Arctic sea ice, and now NASA researchers taking further stock of the situation are providing a clearer picture of exactly how fast it is shrinking and the reasons why. Show More Summary

NASA science flights target melting Arctic Sea ice

This summer, with sea ice across the Arctic Ocean shrinking to below-average levels, a NASA airborne survey of polar ice just completed its first flights. Its target: aquamarine pools of melt water on the ice surface that may be accelerating the overall sea ice retreat.

This Year's Record Arctic Melt Is a Problem For Everybody

If your life has felt like a hot mess this year, you’re not alone. Same goes for the Arctic, which month after month has seen its ice cover contract to new lows. By late September, Arctic sea ice may reach its lowest extent since satellite record-keeping began. Read more...

2016 climate trends continue to break records

Two key climate change indicators -- global surface temperatures and Arctic sea ice extent -- have broken numerous records through the first half of 2016, according to NASA analyses of ground-based observations and satellite data.

Alaska Bakes In Heat Wave While Arctic Sea Ice Continues To Melt

One record showed Fairbanks' airport reaching 96 degrees Wednesday The post Alaska Bakes In Heat Wave While Arctic Sea Ice Continues To Melt appeared first on ThinkProgress.

Arctic sea ice hits a new low in June

Ice cover disappeared at an average rate of 29,000 miles a day.

Ice algae: The engine of life in the central Arctic Ocean

Bremerhaven, 12th July 2016. Algae that live in and under the sea ice play a much greater role for the Arctic food web than previously assumed. In a new study, biologists of the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and...Show More Summary

Ice algae: The engine of life in the central Arctic Ocean

Algae that live in and under the sea ice play a much greater role for the Arctic food web than previously assumed. In a new study, biologists show that not only animals that live directly under the ice thrive on carbon produced by so-called ice algae.

Arctic Sea Ice Disappearing - Drops to New Record Low in June

Ice coverage in the Arctic Sea dropped to a record low in June, according to data reported by the National Snow & Ice Data Center (NSIDC).

The World Is Melting But at Least We’ll Have Better Internet Because of It

Arctic sea ice once prevented ships from installing the undersea cables that support the internet. That’s no longer the case.

Will the Arctic be Ice-Free Within the Next Two Decades?

David Appell, Yale Climate Connections, is asking the question - Will the Arctic Be Ice-Free Within the Next Two Decades? When white sea ice melts, the ocean loses its reflective surface and the darker water absorbs more heat from the sun.

The Melting Arctic Ice Calls For Protecting What I Love

Last week I visited the Svalbard archipelago in the northern Barents Sea to bear witness to the rapid changes occurring in the Arctic. In many ways, the Arctic is the frontline of dramatic environmental changes that will impact everyone. Until...Show More Summary

Arctic Could Be “Free” Of Sea Ice This Year Or Next — 1st Time In 100,000 Years

A somewhat controversial statement was made 4 years ago by Professor Peter Wadhams, head of the Polar Ocean Physics Group at Cambridge University, that the Arctic Ocean could well be free of sea ice within only a few years. While it’s...Show More Summary
