This quantity addresses the fast decline of Arctic sea ice, putting contemporary sea ice decline within the context of earlier observations, weather version simulations and projections, and straightforward types of the weather sensitivity of sea ice. Highlights of the paintings offered the following contain

  • An appraisal of the function performed by way of wind forcing in riding the decline;
  • A reconstruction of Arctic sea ice stipulations ahead of human observations, in accordance with proxy information from sediments;
  • A modeling technique for assessing the effect of sea ice decline on polar bears, used as enter to the U.S. Fish and natural world Service's choice to checklist the polar endure as a threatened species lower than the Endangered Species Act;
  • Contrasting reviews at the lifestyles of a "tipping point," past which Arctic sea ice decline becomes (or has already turn into) irreversible, together with an exam of the position of the small ice cap instability in worldwide warming simulations;
  • A major summertime atmospheric reaction to sea ice relief in an atmospheric basic flow version, suggesting a good suggestions and the opportunity of non permanent weather prediction.

The booklet can be of curiosity to researchers trying to comprehend the new habit of Arctic sea ice, version projections of destiny sea ice loss, and the implications of sea ice loss for the usual and human structures of the Arctic.

In the Arctic Ocean, the calcareous shells of Np often record large oxygen isotope offsets from theoretical equilibrium values, assuming that carbonate precipitation occurs at approximately mid pycnocline depth between the cold and dilute surface water layer and the underlying warm and saline water mass, originating from the North Atlantic Ocean [cf. , 1996; Volkmann and Mensch, 36 Reconstructing Sea Ice Conditions in the Arctic Figure 6. Examples of sea ice cover reconstruction for the last hundreds of years based on cores from the Chukchi Sea and northern Baffin Bay having exceptionally high sedimentation rates (for core location, see sites A and B in Figure 10 and Table 1).
