Sea ice News

With no place to rest, 35,000 walrus gather on Alaska beach

It can get very tiresome swimming around the Arctic Ocean without having any place to take a rest. And if you are a Pacific walrus, and spend your winters in the Bering Sea, it's essential that sea ice be present to use as a resting place.

NASA: Antarctic sea ice grows – but the climate’s still changing

A NASA study has reported a rise in Antarctic sea ice. For cherry picking climate change deniers, it may be a neat counterweight to Arctic ice melt but, as the NASA study shows, Antarctic ice expansion is another worrying trend in global climate change.

Arctic ice cap continues record melt

New data from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSDIC) reveal that Arctic ice is continuing to melt at an alarming rate. Summer ice in the Arctic may all but disappear over the next few decades, much earlier than scientists had previously predicted.

Walrus moms, national security, and thin ice

(Mother's Day) - As global climate change continues to affect the sea ice conditions in the Arctic, the world faces conflicts over ocean rights, while wildlife struggles to adapt. The U.S. Government hopes ratifying the U.N. Law of the Sea is a solution.

Op-Ed: Polar bears eating polar bears, what's new?

Anthropocentric climate change proponents suggest polar bear cannibalism is increasing due to the lack of sea ice formation and the humans causing the warming.

Op-Ed: Cairn Energy’s Arctic oil spill response plan its own disaster

Edinburgh - As the oil and gas industry plows into the Arctic's frigid and inhospitable waters, a member's oil spill response plan has found the light of day, despite best efforts to keep it secret, and gives credence to concerns over the next great catastrophe.

Exxon and Rosneft reach agreement to develop Arctic Ocean

Irving - ExxonMobile and state-controlled Russian oil behemoth OAO Rosneft have reached a $3.2 billion deal to develop Arctic and Black Sea hydrocarbon resources, as well as in other countries across the globe, and will share their expertise in technology.

Global temperatures in May 10th warmest on record

Washington - The planet’s warming trend continued in May, with records showing combined global land and ocean surface temperature almost one degree warmer than the 20th century average, making it the 10th warmest May on record.

Increasing Antarctic sea ice extent linked to the ozone hole

Increased growth in Antarctic sea ice during the past 30 years is a result of changing weather patterns caused by the ozone hole according to new research.

The extent of Arctic sea ice on Aug. 26, 2012, the day the sea ice dipped to its previous smallest extent before the release of the data for September 2012.The line on the image shows the average minimum extent from the period covering 1979-2010, as measured by satellites. Every summer the Arctic ice cap melts down to what scientists call its “minimum” before colder weather builds the ice cover back up.
