    Primary productivity in the Arctic has increased 30% over the last 10 years, indicating significant shifts in the base of the food web. Gaps in current knowledge As sea ice cover changes and more light is available for longer periods of time, the impact of increased phytoplankton and a second fall bloom on Arctic food webs is not well understood. Historical Sea Ice Atlas: Observed Estimates of Sea Ice Concentration in Alaska Waters This data set includes weekly (January to December ) and monthly (January to December ) midpoint historical sea ice concentration (0 - %) estimates at 1/4 x 1/4 degree spatial resolution for the ocean region around the state of Alaska, USA.

    The Atlas shows “snapshots” in time, as well as historical trends in arctic sea ice cover and extent. It is not designed for forecasting or prediction, but can provide useful historical context for future planning efforts. Challenges of data collection and interpretation. Collecting sea ice data has always been difficult and dangerous work.

Funded by the National Ocean Service at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) through AOOS grant #NA11NOS

      The Arctic lost , square miles of sea ice in the month of March alone—an area roughly the size of Alaska, according to National Snow and Ice Data Center records. Aug 6 (Reuters) - The last fully intact ice shelf in the Canadian Arctic has collapsed, losing more than 40% of its area in just two days at the end of July, researchers said on Thursday.

Arctic Web Map (AWM) is an Arctic-specific web mapping tool allowing researchers to customize map projections for scientifically accurate visualization and analysis, a function that is critical for arctic research but missing in existing web mapping platforms.

It provides a visually appealing tool for education and outreach to a wider audience. Don’t expect to hear this news from polar bear activists busy promoting the supposed threat to polar bears from declining Arctic sea ice but ice cover over Hudson Bay so far this summer has been very similar to what it was in the s – often promoted as ‘the good old days’ for Western Hudson Bay polar bears.

Kane Basin resides in the so-called ‘Archipelago’ sea ice ecoregion presumed to be more resilient to summer sea ice loss and but has lost days per year since or about 53 days total (just under 2 months). Yet, the polar bear population in Kane Basin has more than doubled between and (an increase of %) and body condition of bears improved.

The Annual Arctic Ice Atlas is part of a continuing series, prepared each year by the Canadian Ice Service since This collection of atlases documents Canadian Arctic winter sea ice conditions to provide a comparison from year to year.

And it is only one symptom of how uickly the region’s ecosystems are changing. The atlas compiles a wide variety of data into a single, accessible document that can be read in English, French and Inuktitut.

Ice atlas: Canadian Arctic waterways = Atlas des glaces: voies d'eau de l'arctique Canadien. [W E Markham; Canada. Atmospheric Environment Service.]. Areas of the ocean that have frozen are considered “sea ice,” and can vary from slushy, barely solid areas to sheets of ice that are meters thick.

Since the late s, satellites have been used to monitor both the extent and concentration of sea ice around the world, and the National Snow and Ice Data Center generates a sea ice extent.

As the use of Alaska’s Arctic waters increases, so does the need for timely and detailed information about sea ice conditions. Using powerful software and historical databases extending back to the s, AOOS is partnering with the Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) at the University of Alaska to produce a digital sea ice atlas for Alaska.

But with Arctic exploration snowballing and policy slow-as-usual to catch up, a resource like the Sea Ice Atlas could prove vital in helping Arctic vessels stay out of trouble.

False: My recent book, The Polar Bear Catastrophe That Never Happened, explains that the almost 50% decline in summer sea ice that was not expected until actually arrived inwhere it has been ever since (yet polar bears are thriving).That is an extraordinarily bad track record of sea ice.
