Spring coming sooner to Arctic due to climate change

New York, Feb 24 (IANS) Nature's clock is running fast in the Arctic, thanks to climate change. Due to diminishing sea ice cover, spring is coming sooner to some plant species in the low Arctic of Greenland, while other species are delaying their emergence amid warming winters, says a study. The timing of seasonal events, such as first spring growth, flower bud formation and blooming mak...

Sea ice in Arctic and Antarctic hit record lows in November

New York, Dec 7 (IANS) Warm temperatures have led to record decline in the extent of sea ice in the Arctic and off the coast of Antarctica in November this year, say scientists. While unusually high air temperatures and a warm ocean have led to a record low Arctic sea ice extent, in the Southern Hemisphere, Antarctic sea ice extent also hit a record low for the month, caused by moderatel...

Antarctic hasn't lost much sea ice in last 100 years

London, Nov 24 (IANS) The area of sea ice around Antarctica has barely changed in size in the past 100 years, researchers have found. According to estimates by climate scientists at the University of Reading in London, Antarctic has lost ony 14 per cent summer sea ice since the early 1900s. It may be because Antarctic sea ice is much less sensitive to the effects of climate chang...

Sea ice at record lows at poles: Report

Washington, Nov 19 (IANS) Sea ice in the Arctic and Antarctic are at record lows this time of year, the first time since scientists began keeping track, a report revealed. It looks like, since the beginning of October, that for the first time we are seeing both the Arctic and Antarctic sea ice running at record low levels, said Walt Meier, a research scientist with the Cryospheric Scienc...

Arctic Sea ice losing its bulwark against warming atmosphere

Washington, Oct 29 (IANS) As the extent of Arctic Sea ice, the vast sheath of frozen seawater floating on the Arctic Ocean and its neighboring seas, shrinks, its oldest and thickest ice has either thinned or melted away, leaving the sea ice cap more vulnerable to the warming ocean and atmosphere, a NASA study says. What we've seen over the years is that the older ice is disappearing, sai...
