Latest Sea ice Stories
New research by UM bioclimatology Assistant Professor Ashley Ballantyne models the influence of Arctic sea ice on Arctic temperatures during the Pliocene era.
Canada's Mackenzie River basin -- among the world's most important major ecosystems -- is poorly studied, inadequately monitored, and at serious risk due to climate change and resource exploitation.
There is growing recognition that reductions in Arctic sea ice levels will influence patterns of atmospheric circulation both within and beyond the Arctic.
NASA said its Operation IceBridge team has finished up another successful campaign to continue collecting data of Arctic ice measurements.
The development of the sea-ice ecosystem in the circum-Antarctic Southern Ocean may have triggered further adaptation and evolution of larger organisms such as baleen whales and penguins, according to a new study.
The question of ice-free summers in the Arctic, for most scientists, is not "if," but "when." A new study by two NOAA scientists says sooner than many thought.
The Arctic Ocean's ice cover shrank to its lowest extent on record last September at the end of the northern hemisphere summer. This continues a long-term trend diminishing the ice to about half the size of the average summertime extent from 1979 to 2000.
A growing number of studies have pegged global warming and climate change as a cause of sea ice decline in recent decades. However, a newly published study in the journal Nature Geoscience is showing a vastly different scenario.
Have you been experiencing the coldest spring weather in recent memory? Scientists say it may be due to global warming and rapidly melting sea ice in the Arctic.
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...
