Improved Predictability of Sea Ice Break-Up and Freeze-Up for Arctic Coastal Communities and Ecosystems

A new COM-funded Arctic sea ice study improves predictions of sea ice freeze-up and break-up in coastal regions by identifying local indicators.

Solid aerosols in Arctic atmosphere could impact cloud formation and climate

New research demonstrates the presence of solid organic-coated ammonium sulfate particles in the Arctic boundary layer. As the Arctic loses ice, researchers expect to see more of these unique particles formed from oceanic emissions combined with ammonia from birds, that can change how clouds form and climate.

Understanding natural climate variability can improve predictions of sea-ice coverage at short and long term scales, study says

A CPO-funded study published on Nature Climate Change demonstrates how understanding natural climate variability can improve predictions of sea-ice coverage at short and long term scales.

Sea ice loss predicted to slow in the Atlantic, says new CVP-funded research

“There is little doubt that we will see a decline in Arctic sea ice cover in this century in response to anthropogenic warming, and yet internal climate variations and other external forcings could generate considerable spread in Arctic sea ice trends on decadal timescales,” begins a newly released article by Yeager et al., in Geophysical Research Letters.
