The team provided visual highlights to accompany the latest installment of NOAA’s Arctic Report Card, released December, 15 2015.

Increasing air and sea surface temperatures, decreasing sea ice extent and Greenland ice sheet mass, and changing behavior of fish and walrus are among key observations released in the 2015 Arctic Report Card.

Funded by NOAA’s Climate Program Office, this year’s Arctic Report Card documents that air temperature in 2015 across the Arctic was well above average with temperature anomalies over land more than 2 degrees Fahrenheit above average, the highest since records began in 1900. The 2015 report features updates on key indicators as well as new reports on the status of walrus, the northward movement of fishes, increasing river discharge into the Arctic Ocean, and the importance of community-based monitoring.
