Arctic observation, sea ice

Research Area: Arctic observation, sea ice

The Arctic is presently experiencing the greatest regional warming anywhere on Earth. Glaciers are melting, permafrost is thawing and sea ice is retreating. These changes are transforming the physical properties of the Arctic Ocean such as temperature, mixing and light and, in turn, its ecosystems are being transformed.
