    The first century BCE fall of the Roman Republic and Ptolemaic Kingdom and subsequent rise of the Roman Empire were among the most important political transitions in the history of Western civilization. Volcanic fallout in well-dated Arctic ice core records, climate proxies, and Earth system modeling show that this transition occurred during an extreme cold period resulting from a massive.   Research Ship Attaches To Arctic Ice To Study Changing Climate A ship of researchers is crossing the Arctic for a year attached to an ice floe. But finding the right chunk of sea ice was a.

    1 day ago  A new study, published this week in the journal Nature Climate Change, supports predictions that the Arctic could be free of sea ice by High temperatures in the Arctic during the last interglacial – the warm period around , years ago – have puzzled scientists for decades.   Researchers begin expedition to study Arctic climate change. By Frank Jordans. Published pm PDT, the Arctic is the region of the planet where we understand the climate system .

      The study found that average temperatures in the Arctic had increased about 5 degrees Fahrenheit since “If there is one climate variable to rule them all, it is air temperature," Colgan. A shocking new study says that sea ice in the Arctic could completely disappear through September each summer if average global temperatures increase by as little as 2 degrees Celsius and climate.

4 hours ago  Arctic heat wave likely due to climate change Just 15 years from now, the Arctic Ocean may be functionally ice-free for part of the year, a new study.

A wealth of valuable information about the recent climate of the Arctic is presented [in] this excellent volume This is one of the best books on the Arctic climate system and should be required reading for all scientists and students engaged in the study of the Arctic environment.'Cited by: Arctic Climate System Study (ACSYS) - ACSYS Historical ice chart ().

The Arctic could be completely ice-free in summers byaccording to a new study that compared present-day conditions with those aboutyears ago. The study. New research says major climate threats to Arctic communities, ecosystems and infrastructure could come much sooner than expected as vast areas of permafrost continue to thaw.

The study, published. Changes in arctic climate will also affect the rest of the world through increased global warming and rising sea levels. The volume addresses the following major topics: Research results in observing aspects of the Arctic climate system and its processes across a range of time and space scales.

The Arctic climate system is characterized by its low thermal energy state and intimate couplings between the atmosphere, ocean and land. This makes the Arctic a challenging and fascinating region to study.

But given the complex nature of the Arctic climate system, where does one start in describing it. Hence, understanding this high climate sensitivity is most likely key to understanding why some CMIP6 models display such rapid loss of Arctic sea ice.

A recent study suggested this high sensitivity to be caused by stronger cloud feedbacks (Zelinka et al., ). Cambridge Core - Climatology and Climate Change - The Arctic Climate System - by Mark C. Serreze Due to high volumes of traffic at this time we are experiencing some slowness on the site.

Our teams are looking into this as we speak and we hope to be able to resolve this issue as soon as possible. Climate change in the Arctic is opening up access to sea routes of the Arctic region, and this could boost trade and consequently result in a sharp increase in shipping traffic in Norway.

Specifically, Northern Norway would become a focal point for port- and shipping-related activities. The Arctic Climate System Study was an opportunity for a productive coordinated application of existing technology to the study of the marine cryosphere and provided impetus for the development.

Chris Polashenski leads researchers preparing for the year-long MOSAiC expedition. If all goes according to plan, the Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate (MOSAiC). Climate change made Siberian heat times more likely, study says By Amy Woodyatt, CNN The Arctic's sea ice has shrunk dramatically in recent decades, particularly during summer.

The mission is known as the Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate, or overarching goal is to collect a vast trove of. Abrupt climate change is a striking feature of many climate records, particularly the warming events in Greenland ice cores. These abrupt and high-amplitude events were tightly coupled to.

“This volume contains a wealth of data stemming from the ten-year Arctic Climate System Study of the World Climate Research Programme. Each chapter is well illustrated with graphs and maps and includes a thorough set of references.

A four-page index supports the text. Effects of climate changes are very pronounced in the Arctic Ocean (IPCC, ), and the arctic ecosystems are very sensitive to these changes. Thus, it is a great challenge to study these ecosystems in order to evaluate the global consequences of the changes.

Anthropogenic climate change is already affecting various components of Earth’s climate system, especially in the northern high latitudes. According to satellite-based data, Arctic sea ice has been declining over the past three decades (Stroeve et al.

; Parkinson and Cavalieri ; Ding et al. ) with a reduction of annual mean ice cover of over 15% (relative to the first decade.

1 day ago  How soon will the northern polar ocean be ice-free. New research expects the end of Arctic sea ice by LONDON, 11 August, − The temperature of the Arctic matters to the entire world: it helps to keep the global climate fairly cool.

Scientists now say that by there could be an end to Arctic. Human-caused climate change is on track to make the Arctic Ocean functionally ice-free for part of each year starting sometime between andaccording to a study.

The Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate, or MOSAiC, involves roughly scientists and support staff rotating on and off the Polarstern for several months at.
