    Climate change is crucial to Arctic geopolitics and has led to a renewed interest in the region's resources. According to the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), the Arctic is experiencing the fast and drastic climate change with a temperature increase of degrees C in the last 30 years. Climate change causes receding ice sheets, rising air and marine temperatures, melting of. Brave New Arctic is Mark Serreze’s riveting firsthand account of how scientists from around the globe came together to find answers. In a sweeping tale of discovery spanning three decades, Serreze describes how puzzlement turned to alarm as researchers concluded that the Arctic is rapidly thawing due to climate change—and humans are to blame.

    The evolution of knowledge about the Arctic and its climate -- Physical characteristics and basic climatic features -- The basic atmospheric heat budget -- The atmospheric circulation -- The surface energy budget -- Precipitation, net precipitation and river discharge -- Arctic ocean--sea ice--climate interactions -- Climate regimes of the Arctic -- Modeling the Arctic climate system -- Arctic paleoclimates -- Recent climate variability. "This second edition brings this definitive book completely up to date with the many advances in our understanding of Arctic climate since the first edition was published in The book has also been extensively reorganized to weave issues of Arctic change throughout the text, rather than confining them to a single chapter.

      Underscoring the book is concern for the Arctic’s imperiled future, and how climate change is altering this fantastical landscape forever. Helen Macdonald, Vesper Flights The author of the transcendent H is for Hawk returns with Vesper Flights, a revelatory essay collection. The Arctic Climate System provides an overview of the subject for researchers and advanced students in a wide range of disciplines.

The Arctic can be viewed as an integrated system, characterised by intimate couplings between its atmosphere, ocean and land, linked in turn to the larger global system. This comprehensive, up-to-date assessment begins with an outline of early Arctic exploration and the growth of modern research.

Using an integrated systems approach, subsequent chapters examine the atmospheric heat budget and. This second edition brings this definitive book completely up to date with the many advances in our understanding of Arctic climate since the first edition was published in Arctic - Arctic - Climate: The climates of polar lands vary greatly depending on their latitude, proximity of the sea, elevation, and topography; even so, they all share certain “polar” characteristics.

Owing to the high latitudes, solar energy is limited to the summer months. Although it may be considerable, its effectiveness in raising surface temperatures is restricted by the high. Many of the geographic place names in the Arctic honor these explorers (Figure ).

To appreciate our present understanding of the Arctic, we need to step back and review some of this rich history over the past four or five centuries, recognizing, of course, that there have been indigenous populations in the Arctic for many thousands of by: 1.

The course kicks off with content around Arctic geography, climate, and exploration history, and then walks learners through the basics of the components of the Arctic system: atmosphere, ocean, sea ice and ecosystems.

You will also learn how the data collected during MOSAiC will be used to improve climate model projections. There are few persons in the world that know the Arctic and its role in the climate system as well as professor Peter Wadhams. This is an excellent book that should be considered a must-have-read on the topics.

The book covers the following topics: First, the polar regions (with emphasis on the Arctic) with their specific features of the Cited by: The climate of the Arctic is characterized by long, cold winters and short, cool summers.

There is a large amount of variability in climate across the Arctic, but all regions experience extremes of solar radiation in both summer and winter. Some parts of the Arctic are covered by ice (sea ice, glacial ice, or snow) year-round, and nearly all parts of the Arctic experience long periods with.

This comprehensive, up-to-date assessment begins with an outline of early Arctic exploration and the growth of modern : $ The Arctic is a key part of the global climate system because the net positive energy input to the tropics must ultimately be resolved through substantial energy losses in high-latitude regions.

The Arctic influences the global climate system through both positive and negative feedbacks that involve physical, ecological, and human systems of the Arctic.

The balance of evidence suggests that. Due to climate change the Arctic is heating up twice as fast as anywhere else on the planet, shrinking the Arctic sea ice cover by 14% per decade. Compared to the median sea ice cover recorded betweenwe have lost aboutsquare miles, an. The Arctic Climate System, by Mark Serreze and Roger Barry, could not be more timely.

A basic foundation is needed, provided in the present chapter through an overview of some of the basic physical characteristics of the Arctic.
