Latest Arctic shrinkage Stories
Arctic sea ice is melting away far more rapidly than experts had previously predicted, with more than 215 cubic miles (900 cubic kilometers) worth disappearing from the Arctic Ocean over the past year.
Temperatures are rising four times faster in the Artic than the global average, a new University of Melbourne study shows.
The dramatic melt-off of Arctic sea ice due to climate change is hitting closer to home than millions of Americans might think.
Even if the current weather situation may seem to speak against it, the probability of cold winters with much snow in Central Europe rises when the Arctic is covered by less sea ice in summer.
These researchers assert that the Arctic is already suffering some of the effects that, according to The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), correspond with a "dangerous climate change". Currently, the rate of climatic warming exceeds the rate of natural adaptation in arctic ecosystems.
A new report from a group of multination scientists says that the planet’s Arctic is moving into a warmer phase compared with previous years. And as with most all major environmental changes, there are both winners and losers as temperatures rise.
The UN’s World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has issued a new report, the annual World Meteorological Organization Statement on the Status of the Global Climate.
A new report shows that Arctic sea ice continues to shrink each summer to nearly record low levels.
Relatively accurate predictions for the extent of Arctic sea ice in a given summer can be made by assessing conditions the previous autumn, but forecasting conditions more than five years into the future depend on understanding the impact of climate trends on the ice pack, new research shows.
