Any reduction in emissions means shorter open-water periods

A new study be the University of Manitoba, finds that for every degree of global warming, the open water period in the Arctic will increase by roughly one month. The study, Arctic open-water periods are projected to lengthen dramatically by 2100 – published in the Nature journal Communications Earth & Environment, notes: The shrinking of Arctic-wide…

Climate on Steroids in the Arctic, Blue Ocean Event 2020?

It has long be debated, estimated, projected when the Arctic Ocean becomes essentially ice free, in terms of the so called Blue Ocean definition – typically defined as less than 1 million square kilometers of ice, or less than 10% of the basin. YALE: Relentless high pressure and cloud-free skies have allowed the Arctic Ocean’s sea…

Further Evidence suggests Arctic Ocean Methane Storage getting Unstable

Experts of the field in studying one of the most puzzling regions in the Arctic for methane emissions, the East Siberian Arctic Shelf (ESAS) reported last October about the largest readings since studies started there 15 years ago. The region is known to be particular important due to it’s size, and low water depth, with…

Video: Enhanced Seismic Activity Observed in Alaska Due To Climate Change

With news breaking that Alaska just had its warmest March to May on record with a statewide average temperature of 32.6°F, 8.6°F above the long-term average – the previous warmest spring in Alaska was in 2016, one must ask how this performs in relation to seismicity. Read the study excerpts of, Enhanced Seismic Activity Observed in Alaska Due…

NASA’s Permafrost Special “All Hell Breaks Lose”

This week, #NASAExplorers head back in time…by going underground. In the Arctic, a frozen layer of soil – permafrost – trapped dead plants and animals for thousands of years. As the climate warms, that soil is beginning to thaw, releasing carbon dioxide and methane. Release via https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7ZbghndiwQ
