Arctic settles into new phase – warmer, greener, and less ice

Arctic settles into new phase – warmer, greener, and less ice | Climate Change and Data Rescue | Scoop.it

An international team of scientists who monitor the rapid changes in the Earth’s northern polar region say that the Arctic is entering a new state – one with warmer air and water temperatures, less summer sea ice and snow cover, and a changed ocean chemistry. This shift is also causing changes in the region’s life, both on land and in the sea, including less habitat for polar bears and walruses, but increased access to feeding areas for whales.

 

Changes to the Arctic are chronicled annually in the Arctic Report Card, which was released today. The report is prepared by an international team of scientists from 14 different countries.

Ice photos from NOAA Ships.

 

Among the 2011 highlights are:

 

Atmosphere: In 2011, the average annual near-surface air temperatures over much of the Arctic Ocean were approximately 2.5° F (1.5° C) greater than the 1981-2010 baseline period.


Sea ice: Minimum Arctic sea ice area in September 2011 was the second lowest recorded by satellite since 1979.


Ocean: Arctic Ocean temperature and salinity may be stabilizing after a period of warming and freshening. Acidification of sea water (“ocean acidification”) as a result of carbon dioxide absorption has also been documented in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas.


Land: Arctic tundra vegetation continues to increase and is associated with higher air temperatures over most of the Arctic land mass.
