Chinese experts warn of sharp reduction in Arctic sea ice

Beijing, July 12 (IANS) Arctic sea ice cover is expected to decline to its second-lowest level since satellite observations began in 1979, scientists from the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) have warned. Based on an Arctic sea prediction system developed by our research team, the ice cover is expected to shrink to 4.1 million square kilometers (1.6 million sq miles) in September, EFE n...

Arctic winter warming events becoming more frequent

Washington, July 12 (IANS) Arctic winter warming events -- winter days when temperatures peak above minus 10 degrees Celsius -- are becoming more frequent and lasting longer than they did three decades ago, a new research has found. The study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, showed that since 1980, an additional six warming events are occurring each winter in the N...

Global warming may explain Arctic's green ice

New York, March 31 (IANS) Global warming may be responsible for massive blooms of phytoplankton growing under Arctic sea and more blooms in the future, potentially causing significant disruption in the Arctic food chain, suggests new research. Phytoplankton should not be able to grow under the ice because ice reflects most sunlight back into space, blocking it from reaching the water bel...

Sea ice sinks to record lows at both poles this year

Washington, March 23 (IANS) While Arctic Sea ice reached this year a record low wintertime maximum extent, sea ice around Antarctica also hit its lowest extent ever recorded by satellites at the end of summer in the Southern Hemisphere, scientists have said. In February this year, the combined Arctic and Antarctic sea ice extent was at its lowest point since satellites began to continuou...

Natural swings partly responsible for Arctic sea ice loss

Washington, March 14 (IANS) Rapid loss of Arctic sea ice in recent decades is partly driven by natural swings, not just global warming triggered by human activities, says a study. A shift in wind patterns is responsible for about 60 per cent of sea ice loss in the Arctic Ocean since 1979, the researchers found. Some of this shift is related to climate change, but the study showe...

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...

Russia to induct largest n-icebreaker in 2019

New Delhi, Feb 21 (IANS) Looking to expand its reach in the Arctic region, increase the transportation of cargo and conduct year-round navigation in the ice-covered polar waters, Russia is set to commission the 33,000 tonne Arktika, the world's largest nuclear-powered ice-breaker, in 2019, a top official has said. Not only that, Vyacheslav V. Ruksha, Director General of Atomflot that mai...

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...

NASA renews hunt for Antarctic meteorites

Washington, Nov 16 (IANS) To help learn more about the primitive building blocks of the solar system and answer questions about Earths neighbours like the moon and Mars, three federal entities in the US, including NASA, are reaffirming their commitment to search for Antarctic meteorites. NASA, the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Smithsonian Institution (SI) recently renewed the...

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...
