[1] The past two decades saw a steady decrease of summer Arctic sea ice extent. The 2007 value was yet considerably lower than expected from extrapolating the long-term trend. We present a quantitative analysis of this extraordinary event based on the adjoint of a coupled ocean-sea ice model. This new approach allows to efficiently assess the sensitivity of the ice-covered area in September 2007 with respect to any potential influence factor. We can trace back 86% of the ice area reduction to… CONTINUE READING
