The Annual Arctic Ice Atlas is part of a continuing series, prepared each year by the Canadian Ice Service since This collection of atlases documents Canadian Arctic winter sea ice conditions to provide a comparison from year to year.

Annual release. Description. This atlas is part of a continuing series of annual publications graphically depicting the mid-winter arctic ice conditions using satelite pictures and maps. This product is primarily prepared as a climate record of the mid-winter ice conditions and as a general interest document for arctic travelers.

Satellite-based passive microwave images of the sea ice have provided a reliable tool for continuously monitoring changes in the Arctic ice since Every summer the Arctic ice cap melts down to what scientists call its "minimum" before colder weather begins to cause ice cover to increase.

The ice parameters derived from satellite ice concentration data that are most relevant to climate. Satellite-based passive microwave images of the sea ice have provided a reliable tool for continuously monitoring changes in the Arctic ice since Every summer the Arctic ice cap melts down to what scientists call its "minimum" before colder weather begins to cause ice cover to increase.

This graph displays the area of the minimum sea ice coverage each year from through We can plan for the future by studying the past. If you live in an Alaska coastal community, hunt or fish in a marine environment, work in shipping or oil and gas, serve with the US Coast Guard, research Arctic ecosystems or are otherwise interested in Arctic sea ice data and climate change, this atlas is for you.

Now you can simultaneously view multiple sources of historical sea ice data from. The climate of the Arctic is characterized by long, cold winters and short, cool summers.

There is a large amount of variability in climate across the Arctic, but all regions experience extremes of solar radiation in both summer and winter.

Some parts of the Arctic are covered by ice (sea ice, glacial ice, or snow) year-round, and nearly all parts of the Arctic experience long periods with. Definitions. The Arctic Ocean is the mass of water positioned approximately above latitude 65° N.

Arctic Sea Ice refers to the area of the Arctic Ocean covered by ice. The Arctic sea ice minimum is the day in a given year when Arctic sea ice reaches its smallest extent, occurring at the end of the summer melting season, normally during Sea ice maximum is the day of a year.

“There it was, the land under 80 degrees, a land of stern magnificence, where icebergs rear up almost to the very mountaintops, and mountain rises above mountain; there it was, inviolate, alive to the raucous voice of millions of birds, the continuous staccato bark of foxes, the castanet click as the hoofs of great herds of deer fell in a swinging trot; there it was, surrounded by waters.

So, this focus on Arctic ice as an important parameter for global temperatures can actually be crucial for the pro-IPCC team.

Any year things can take a turn aproximately as they did Any year the death of AGW can be the result of the massive focus on Arctic ice.

Then “desperate” seem like the correct word. Arctic sea ice reached its annual maximum extent on Ma after a brief surge in extent mid-month. Overall the Arctic maximum was the fifth lowest in the to record. Antarctic sea ice reached its annual minimum on Febru and was the.

The loss of Arctic sea ice has myriad consequences, but one of the most troubling effects involves the overall impact of this change on the climate system as a whole.

Towards this end, the actual year-round data on the ice extent from – were used to derive an equation to calculate the annual average ice extent in the region.(enabling) the missing annual ice-extent means from – (to be) calculated.

A guest article by Florence Fetterer, principal investigator at the National Snow and Ice Data Centre (NSIDC) in the US. Sea ice cover in the Arctic has undergone a widely reported decline in recent decades. The decrease has been greatest during summer, with sea ice extent reducing by around 12% per decade since the satellite record began in   The sea ice in the Arctic Ocean is approaching its annual nadir.

By early September each year about two thirds of the ice cap has melted, then the sea begins to freeze again. This year looks unlikely to set a record for melting, with more than four million square kilometres of ice remaining, less than the average in the s and s, but.

Robert Grumbine has a discussion of the timing for an ice-free arctic September. He estimatesplus or minus seven years, based on a probabilistic prediction.

Arctic Sea Ice Graphs. Search this site. Daily graphs and maps. Concentration maps. There was no persistent ice to speak of, and annual average temperatures hovered in the mids Fahrenheit.

There may have been rare dustings of snow or intermittent frost, but for the most part. Arctic sea ice now starts melting 11 days earlier and it starts refreezing 26 days later than it used to, on average (see Figure 3).

The most reliable observations are Fig Overview map of the Arctic and adjacent regions showing the extent of Cited by: In the golden age of polar exploration (from the mids to the early s), many an expedition set out to answer the big question―was the Arctic a continent, an open ocean beyond a barrier of ice, or an ocean covered with ice.

No one knew, for the ice had kept its secret well; ships trying to penetrate it all failed, often by: 1. This book discusses as well the phytoplankton associations and relative phytoplankton production in the area between the m depth contour and the edge of the ice in summer.
