Twenty-First-Century Climate Impacts from a Declining Arctic Sea Ice Cover

  title={Twenty-First-Century Climate Impacts from a Declining Arctic Sea Ice Cover},
  author={Joy S Singarayer and Jonathan L. Bamber and Paul J Valdes},
A steady decline in Arctic sea ice has been observed over recent decades. General circulation models predict further decreases under increasing greenhouse gas scenarios. Sea ice plays an important role in the climate system in that it influences ocean-to-atmosphere fluxes, surface albedo, and ocean buoyancy. The aim of this study is to isolate the climate impacts of a declining Arctic sea ice cover during the current century. The Hadley Centre Atmospheric Model (HadAM3) is forced with observed… CONTINUE READING
