    US National Snow and Ice Data Centre, Boulder CO The extent of seasonal sea ice around the Antarctic is expected to decline in the long term as global warming continues, but this decline has not started yet. It can be hardly denied that Friedrich's various "sea of ice" paintings must be seen in relation to this traumatic experience. Daily Arctic sea ice extent on September 10,the reported minimum extent for the year. But in recent years this cycle has shifted as melt has increased and the sea ice has crept back to unprecedented lows.

    Remote sensing also revealed a reduction of 3 percent per decade in Arctic sea ice extent fromwith particularly rapid losses occurring from the late s. As a result, the polar regions are the most susceptible places to climate change on the planet. As the first book, it is of course where you should start reading, as it introduces all of the characters. In other words, it is ice that grows in the fall and winter after it has gone through the new ice — nilas — young ice stages and grows further but does not survive the spring and summer months it melts away. In rough water, fresh sea ice is formed by the cooling of the ocean as heat is lost into the atmosphere.

    But in recent years this cycle has shifted as melt has increased and the sea ice has crept back to unprecedented lows. Whereas snow-covered sea ice is an effective insulator that restricts heat loss from the relatively warm ocean to the colder atmosphere, there is significant turbulent heat and mass transfer from leads and polynyas to the ocean and atmosphere during the winter months. The thickness of this ice typically ranges from 0. The Arctic Ocean gets so cold that it freezes, forming sea ice. Besides its deterrence to the exchange of energy between the ocean and the atmosphere, the formation of sea ice generates vast quantities of cold water that help drive the circulation of the world ocean system.

The physical boundary between fast ice and drift ice is the fast ice boundary. This image, taken on Aug. In winter, leads freeze quickly.

Pack ice drift and thickness The large-scale drift of sea ice in the Arctic Ocean is dominated by the Beaufort Gyre a roughly circular current flowing clockwise within the surface waters of the Beaufort Sea in the western or North American Arctic and the Transpolar Drift the major current flowing into the Atlantic Ocean from the eastern or Eurasian Arctic.

By contrast, icebergs, glaciers and ice shelves all originate on land. Together, the Beaufort Gyre and Transpolar Drift strongly influence the Arctic Ocean ice thickness distribution, which has been determined largely from submarine sonar measurements of the ice draft.

Sea ice expanded slowly during much of August, with the extent even decreasing at certain points of the month. The Arctic Ocean gets so cold that it freezes, forming sea ice.

In the freezing process, much of the salt in ocean water is squeezed out of the frozen crystal formations, though some remains frozen in the ice. She's a bit moony over Torka and he can be a jerk sometimes, but her heart's in the right place and she's a hard worker.

The bold attempt by man to burst the bounds of his allotted sphere ends in death. Then the sea ice grows downward and thickens. Other terms, such as grease ice and pancake iceare used for ice Sea-ice information services in the world book accumulations under the action of wind and waves.

Measured routinely using data obtained from orbiting satellite instruments, the minimum and maximum sea ice Sea-ice information services in the world book figures vary annually and by decade.

In Antarctica, where cold, relatively low-salinity seawater flows out from beneath ice shelvesplatelet ice grows both in the water column and at the bottom of the sea ice on the ocean surface.

And Umak, well he's got a bit of an ego and can be superficial, but deep down he too has a good heart.

Old ice is commonly divided into two types: second-year ice, which has survived one melting season, and multiyear ice, which has survived more than one. Today's Arctic sea ice coverage is at its lowest sinceand the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration anticipates further loss of Arctic sea ice in the next 30 years.

Interactions with the oceansatmosphereand climate The growth and decay of sea ice influences local, regional, and global climate through interactions with the atmosphere and ocean. A pressure ridge is composed of a sail above the waterline and a keel below. The Antarctic sea ice extent will continue to expand into September until the annual maximum extent occurs and the annual melt season begins.

Both this growth and the current unusual low could just be the result of natural variability, says climatologist John Turner of the British Antarctic Survey in Cambridge, UK. As the ice melts it lowers the albedo thus causing more heat to be absorbed by the Earth and further increase the amount of melting ice.

Only the sail the part of the ridge above the ice surface is shown in this photograph — the keel is more difficult to document.

New ice such as nilas has the highest average salinity 12—15 parts per thousand ; as ice grows thicker during the course of the winter, the average salinity of the entire ice thickness decreases as brine is lost from the ice.

That was the lowest minimum since record keeping began in Changes in the Arctic can influence weather globally, and small temperature increases at the poles lead to greater warming of the Earth over time. For instance, when the summer melt pushes sea ice unusually far from land over deep waters, walruses swarm onto beaches.

Sea ice is classified according to whether or not it is able to drift, and according to its age. What is Causing the Melt?Beyond the Sea of Ice is the first book in a prehistoric series by William Sarabande.
