Abigail Crane's curator insight, June 24, 2015 3:28 PM

Over previous years sea ice has declined due to higher air temperatures. Trees are growing further into the Arctic Circle and snow cover is decreasing 1-2% each year. People from Norway released a report on some main issues.

LAND:

  • Permafrost melting rapidly
  • Temperature rising in Northern Alaska
  • Nearly all glaciers are decreasing in mass

SUMMER SEA ICE:

  • 23% less than the previous record low of 5.6m sq kilometers in 2005, and 39% below the 1979-2000 average
  • Ice is much thinner than in previous years

GREENLAND:

  • Temperatures above previous averages
  • Higher percentage of melting
  • Higher amount of days of melting

WARMER WATERS:

  • 5*C warmer at edge of ice than previous averages
  • More solar radiation absorbed by dark waters due to loss of reflective, white ice

BLACK CARBON:

  • When burnt creates haze which absorbs sunlight
  • Is deposited on snow, making surface darker to absorb more sun
