Improved Understanding of the Cause of Arctic Sea Ice Decline


Two DOE- funded researchers are part of the team that has edited a new book on the decline of Arctic Sea ice.  The American Geophysical Union volume addresses the rapid decline of Arctic sea ice, placing recent sea ice decline in the context of past observations, climate model simulations and projections, and simple models of the climate sensitivity of sea ice.  The book will be of interest to researchers attempting to understand the recent behavior of Arctic sea ice, model projections of future sea ice loss, and the consequences of sea ice loss for the natural and human systems of the Arctic.
