Arctic Ocean changes driven by sub-Arctic seas

New research explores how lower-latitude oceans drive complex changes in the Arctic Ocean, pushing the region into a new reality distinct from the 20th-century norm.

Ice melting Arctic cyclones more common than previously thought

Remember the Arctic cyclone that chopped up the Arctic sea ice in 2012, resulting in a new record low summer extent for the satellite era? It turns out they are…

A Theory Ready for Extinction

Don’t worry too much over those warmist predictions that millions of species will soon be lost to climate change. Judging by their methods it is the doomsayers who are the…

Negative feedback? Storing CO2 in the Arctic

From the Massachusetts Institute of Technology: While the Arctic Ocean is largely a carbon sink, researchers find parts are also a source of atmospheric carbon dioxide For the past three…

NASA says Arctic sea ice 'Unlikely To Break Records' in 2013

A video animation follows. Note also that Dr. Walt Meier is now with NASA Goddard, after leaving NSIDC at the end of July. This is his first report from NASA.…

Remarkable correlation of Arctic sea ice to solar cycle length

This is interesting, especially since Solar Cycle 23 was quite long. The Hockey Schtick writes: A paper published by the Danish Meteorological Institute finds a remarkable correlation of Arctic sea…

Avaaz! Save the world from a slushy death, just £2

People send me stuff. This is an email solicitation claiming that if you send Avaaz £2 a week (About $3.07 USD at current exchange rate) they’ll somehow be able to help…

Modeling sea level rise is an 'uneven' proposition

From the British Antarctic Survey New projections of ‘uneven’ global sea-level rise Reporting in the journal Geophysical Research Letters researchers have looked ahead to the year 2100 to show how…

Ice loss model verification via satellite observations

European satellite confirms UW numbers: Arctic Ocean is on thin ice By Hannah Hickey (via university of Washington press release) The September 2012 record low in Arctic sea-ice extent was…

Dust in the wind: Melt ponds in the Arctic hasten overall melting

I’ve often wondered if carbon soot plays a role in this. See our recent WUWT story about how black carbon’s role has been underestimated, and note that Arctic melting is…
