Offering new insights into our fragile polar regions, ESA’s CryoSat mission has provided three consecutive years of Arctic sea-ice thickness measurements, which show that the ice continues to thin.

Important Role In Polar Ocean Carbon Budgets Played By Micro-gels From Tiny Arctic And Antarctic Ice Algae
2013-09-10 10:47:21

Secretion of polysaccharides from the micro community living within the sea ice stick organism together and forms greater particles introducing a rapid transport of carbon to the seafloor.

Arctic Sea Ice Political Controversy

Bowhead and minke whale sightings, extensive ice floe measurements and the successful retrieval of important moored instruments are among the successes of a multinational team of ice engineering researchers and marine biologists during their first week off the coast of northeastern Greenland on the Swedish icebreaker Oden.

Sea Ice Decline Changing The Vegetation Of The Arctic

Sea ice decline and warming trends are changing the vegetation in nearby arctic coastal areas, according to two University of Alaska Fairbanks scientists.

2013 Ice Melt Will Not Be Record Year Despite Continuing Downhill Trends
2013-08-23 10:06:14

Arctic sea ice is reaching its annual "minimum" melt for the summer, but NASA says this year's low will unlikely be breaking any records and will not match 2012's record-breaking ice melt season.

A new paper co-written by UM associate professor Mark Hebblewhite details ecological changes caused by a loss of Arctic sea ice.

Wildlife Greatly Impacted By Arctic Sea-Ice Loss
2013-08-02 07:11:40

Because sea ice is at its lowest point in 1,500 years, scientists are questioning how ecological communities in the Arctic will be affected by this continued and perhaps accelerating melting process over the next two decades.

Slight changes in the timing of the annual loss of sea-ice in polar regions could have dire consequences for polar ecosystems, by allowing a lot more sunlight to reach the sea floor.

Polar Pool Not Extreme

Arctic Ocean
2013-04-18 22:31:23

The Arctic Ocean which is located in the Northern Hemisphere and mostly in the Arctic north polar region, is the shallowest and smallest of the world’s five major oceanic divisions. The International Hydrographic Organization recognizes it as an ocean, although, some oceanographers consider it as the Arctic Mediterranean Sea or simply, the Arctic Sea, classifying it a Mediterranean sea or an estuary of the Atlantic Ocean. Alternatively, the Arctic Ocean can be considered as the northernmost...
