changes in sea ice thickness and the relative amounts of open water on surface air temperatures through the year. Figure 2 shows that the impact on the surface air temperatures is rather small during the summer; however, during the winter, when there is a large difference between the surface temperature of ocean water and of sea ice, the impact of small changes in the area of open ocean on surface air temperature is large. When areas of open ocean are eliminated, during the winter, the… CONTINUE READING
