      About this book. Sea Ice in the Arctic provides in-depth information about the sea ice in the Arctic at scales from paleoenvironmental variability to more contemporary changes during the past and present centuries. The book is based on several decades of research related to sea ice in the Arctic and its variability, sea ice process studies as well as implications of the sea ice . Historical Sea Ice Atlas: Observed Estimates of Sea Ice Concentration in Alaska Waters This data set includes weekly (January to December ) and monthly (January to December ) midpoint historical sea ice concentration (0 - %) estimates at 1/4 x 1/4 degree spatial resolution for the ocean region around the state of Alaska, USA.

      The Arctic Ocean is the smallest and shallowest of the world's five major oceans It is also known as the coldest of all the oceans. The International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) recognizes it as an ocean, although some oceanographers call it the Arctic is sometimes classified as an estuary of the Atlantic Ocean, and it is also seen as the northernmost part of the all . This Ice Atlas follows from our previous Canadian arctic ice atlas published in The ice years through have been used for this publication and cover a climatological time period of 30 years, the standard for representing statistical averages and extremes.

        Polar bear survival contradictions: sea ice decline vs. documented harm; 10 fallacies about Arctic sea ice & polar bear survival refute misleading ‘facts’ Hudson Bay sea ice cover at early summer is similar to the s; Polar bear habitat in Canada and eastern Alaska compared at end of June It’s here – as promised and right on schedule — the sea ice atlas put together by University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) now has ice concentration maps for Alaska going back to — and for every year up to Several examples are included below: August vs August , and April vs. April and April

The atlas, found atis constructed from historical records, maps, trails and place names, and allows the first overview of the "pan-Inuit" world that is being fragmented as the annual sea ice diminishes and commercial mining and oil drilling encroaches.

Areas of the ocean that have frozen are considered “sea ice,” and can vary from slushy, barely solid areas to sheets of ice that are meters thick. Since the late s, satellites have been used to monitor both the extent and concentration of sea ice around the world, and the National Snow and Ice Data Center generates a sea ice extent.

Arctic Web Map (AWM) is an Arctic-specific web mapping tool allowing researchers to customize map projections for scientifically accurate visualization and analysis, a function that is critical for arctic research but missing in existing web mapping platforms.

It provides a visually appealing tool for education and outreach to a wider audience. The Atlas shows “snapshots” in time, as well as historical trends in arctic sea ice cover and extent. It is not designed for forecasting or prediction, but can provide useful historical context for future planning efforts.

As the use of Alaska’s Arctic waters increases, so does the need for timely and detailed information about sea ice conditions. Using powerful software and historical databases extending back to the s, AOOS is partnering with the Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) at the University of Alaska to produce a digital sea ice atlas for Alaska.

Most of high arctic Canada and the Canadian Archipelago is part of Nunavut. Baffin Island has almost everything that the Arctic has to offer, plentiful wildlife, enormous mountains, fjords, glaciers, sea-ice, modern Inuit culture and an extensive history of occupation by native peoples and visits by explorers.Primary productivity in the Arctic has increased 30% over the last 10 years, indicating significant shifts in the base of the food web.

Gaps in current knowledge As sea ice cover changes and more light is available for longer periods of time, the impact of increased phytoplankton and a second fall bloom on Arctic food webs is not well understood.Friday, ApAM - The new official map of Canada is raising some eyebrows this week, as - contrary to reality - it appears to show an increase in Arctic sea ice over the previous.
