Melting in the Artic and the Effects of climate Change



So far this winter, the weather has been unseasonably warm. Many people are celebrating the reduced shoveling, the glove-free days, and the lower heating bills. At the same time, some of us are quietly concerned about the implications, and wondering if the unusual weather is related to changes in the global climate system.

The presentation will include current measurement data of the Arctic sea ice that are raising concerns about the possible loss of the polar ice cap in the near future. More info
