Changes in climate are amplified in the Arctic region. An analysis of the CMIP5 state-of-the-art climate models reveals that temperature feedbacks are the dominant factor in this amplification, whereas the change in reflectivity of the Earth’s surface as sea ice and snow melt makes only a secondary contribution.
