Arctic Sea Ice and Permafrost Status Report 2017

The Arctic is warming faster than anywhere else on Earth, affecting people in the region, fish and wildlife they depend on for food, and their environment. This unprecedented change has ramifications far beyond the region for the global economy, weather, climate, sea level, trade and security. Watch the full Arctic Report 2017 AGU press conference…

NASA’s Mission to Explore Greenland’s Ice Melt (Raw)

The Oceans Melting Greenland mission seeks to understand how ocean water is contributing to ice loss in Greenland. In October 2017, mission scientists and crew dropped 240 ocean probes from a C-130 aircraft into the waters around Greenland to measure ocean temperature. Footage includes interior and exterior shots of the aircraft with crew and scientists…

Arctic Sea Ice Extent 2nd lowest on Record for the Date

Another “warm” and slow freeze season in the #Arctic. Sea ice extent is the 2nd lowest on record for the date (2016 – lowest) & 1.9 million km^2 below the 1980s average… https://twitter.com/ZLabe/status/932663163476045825

What’s Happening to the Greenland Ice Sheet? (October 2017)

The Greenland ice sheet is one of the largest contributors to global sea level rise, and if completely melted, could add ~7 meters to sea level. In recent years, the imbalance of the ice sheet has increased with warmer atmospheric conditions. In this talk, Visiting Assistant Professor Samiah Moustafa describes the field’s current knowledge on…

Largest Glacier East Antarctic may add to Sea Level Rise (Totten Glacier)

Totten Glacier, the largest glacier in East Antarctica, is being melted from below by warm water that reaches the ice when winds over the ocean are strong — a cause for concern because the glacier holds more than 11 feet of sea level rise and acts as a plug that helps lock in the ice…

Arctic Climate Feedbacks [peer-reviewed]

This peer-reviewed educational video introduces feedbacks that are important in the Arctic climate system. It is aimed at an undergraduate non-science major level. The video was produced by a team of CIRES scientists in collaboration with CIRES Education and Outreach. Video production was funded by Professor Jennifer Kay’s CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation…

Scientist Explains Climate Ice Core Proxies (2017)

This talk by Lonnie G. Thompson, focuses on glaciers as recorders and early indicators of climate change. The ongoing widespread melting of high-elevation glaciers and ice caps, particularly in low to middle latitudes, provides strong evidence that a large scale, pervasive and in some cases, rapid change in Earth’s climate system is underway. On Thursday…
