For five months in 2015, a team of researchers drifted with polar ice, their ship tethered to an ice floe as they collected data to help them better understand how the loss of sea ice will affect the planet. The air above the Arctic Ocean has warmed on average about 5°F in the past century—more than twice the global average—and sea ice covers less and less of it. Most researchers study the ice during the summer. This team, battling bone-chilling cold, tracked it from when it formed in winter until it started melting in spring. And occasionally found time to kick a soccer ball around the floe. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe About National Geographic: National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure.

NASA is preparing to launch two missions to explore the Arctic following data that showed 2015 to be the warmest year on record. According to the US space agency, 2016 so far appears to be hot on last year's heels, prompting sea ice to grow at an exceptionally slow rate. NASA scientist Walt Meier says the effects could be wide-ranging: "The Arctic has been kind-of like an air conditioner, a cool region that helps keep the planet cooler, and we're losing the efficiency on that.

This visualization shows the seasonal variability of the weekly sea ice age between 1984 and 2016, growing in the Arctic winter and melting in the summer. Changes from year to year are also evident. Ice age is depicted in different colors. Younger sea ice, or first-year ice, is shown in a dark shade of blue while the ice that is four years old or older is shown as white. A color scale identifies the age of the intermediary years. One significant change in the Arctic region in recent years has been the rapid decline in perennial sea ice. Perennial sea ice, also known as multi-year ice, is the portion of the sea ice that survives the summer melt season. Perennial ice may have a life-span of nine years or more and represents the thickest component of the sea ice; perennial ice can grow up to four meters thick. By contrast, first year ice that grows during a single winter is generally at most two meters thick. A graph in the lower, right corner the quantifies the change over time by showing the area in millions of square kilometers covered by each age category of perennial sea ice. This graph also includes a memory bar - the green line that here represents the current maximum value seen thus far in the visualization for the particular week displayed. For example, when showing the first week in September, the memory bar will show the maximum value seen for all prior years' first week of September since the beginning of the visualization (January 1, 1984). A graph in the lower, left corner the quantifies the change over time by showing each age category of sea ice as a percent of total ice cover in the Arctic Ocean. The lavender outline on the map indicates the spatial region covered by the Arctic Ocean and thus included in the graph.

Our climate system has destabilized. Our fossil-fueled emissions have changed the chemistry of our atmosphere and our oceans, changing the heat balance between the equator and Arctic. This has fractured the jet streams, and brings us closer to a new planet with zero snow and ice in the Arctic. Here is what is happening...

The Arctic is warming up at twice the rate of the rest of the globe. Summer sea ice has receded by almost 25 percent since 1979, with the sea change becoming ever more apparent and Arctic-native animals now visibly struggling in their prolonged search for shelter, ice and food. Offshore oil exploration and increased tourism have also contributed to the speed at which environmental changes are occurring in the Arctic, with the fear of an ice-free summer on the horizon looming over the fate of the area. These changes have also been spotted on land, with melting permafrost causing entire patches of land and man-made structures to sink as the earth softens. Proximity to land and resources also presents a challenge, not only in times of emergency on the water, but also in executing the research required to understand and attempt to combat the effects of global warming on the Arctic. This is where the Polar-class icebreakers factor in. The United States owns only two icebreakers that are able to breach the density of ice formations the Arctic is known for. Weighing it at 16,000 tonnes and with the abilitiy to reach 30,000 horsepower, they are a force to be reckoned with on the open seas. These vessels are used not only as a coast guard, but also to aide in sceintific studies. Missions often include unmanned vehicles - a safety precaution - including drones and others that explore not only the view from the air, but also what is happening in the water and life under the ice. Levels of carbon dioxide in the air and the sea, water salinity, temperature, oxygen and chlorophyll blooms - a potentially dangerous situation where algae multiplies and decomposes on the surface of the water, using up oxygen resources from the rest of the sealife - are all deliverables that can be quantified using the unmanned vehicles. Scientists from the Arctic Domain Awarness Centre at the University of Alaska Anchorage are also working on an 'isotope sniffer' amongst other experiments and unmanned 'drones'. A snout hangs out from the bow of a Polar-class icebreaker as a means of atmospheric sampling, and feeds the information down to isotope analysers below deck, in seconds-long intervals. The ultimate vision is to understand the effects of potentially environmentally-damaging activity, such as offshore rigging by the Shell oil company, creating technology that can accurately register important data in extreme temperatures and conditions - 'guardians' of the water - without endangering the lives of crew members. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

It’s almost the size of Antarctica. For most of its part, the region is inhospitable. In the summer, the weather can rise above the melting point, yet, in the winter, it can plunge down to minus 45 degrees Celsius. This situation, however, is not to last. In the coming decades, climate change will make the Arctic passages and resources become more accessible. Given the abundance of resources and critical trade routes, it should come as no surprise that the Arctic will turn into a new geopolitical flashpoint.

A time-lapse video released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration shows a distinct change in old Arctic ice from 1990 to 2015. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has released a time-lapse video showing the relative age of Arctic ice week-by-week from January 1990 until September 2015, based on data provided by Mark Tschudi from the University of Colorado-Boulder. Seasonal ice appears darkest blue while older ice (over nine-years-old) appears white. Once the video ends, it's clear the older ice is running considerably lower after 25 years of climate change.

The United States Armed Forces are the federal military forces of the United States. CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. - Marines with 3rd Platoon, Truck Company, Headquarters Battalion, 1st Marine Division, conducted a Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacement and High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle driving course aboard Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms, Calif., from Aug. 19 - Sept. 2. The course was in preparation for Exercise Black Alligator, an annual exercise that allows U.S. Marines, Royal Marines and Dutch Marines to work side by side and complete multiple mission-based scenarios over close to eight weeks. The U.S. Marines assisted the British Royal Marines and Dutch Marines in honing their skills behind the wheel of U.S. military vehicles. Over two weeks, the Marines of 3rd Platoon, with help from Marines from G-4 Motor Transport Section, 1st Marine Division tested more than 150 Royal Marines and Dutch Marines on their operational skills. While hands-on driving time is needed during the course, training started in the classroom, said Gunnery Sgt. Jorge Careaga, the Licensing Staff Non-Commissioned Officer in Charge for 1st Marine Division. “The training is conducted in a sort of crawl, walk, run method just like in driver’s education to drive a civilian car,” Careaga said. “You have to start learning the basics in the classroom before you just jump behind the wheel of a car.” During the classes, the Royal Marines and Dutch Marines learned everything from assembling the vehicles to carry troops, to conducting functions checks for the vehicles. The environment and location also made the training more challenging for the visiting forces, who were not familiar with the desert environment, explained 2nd Lieutenant Brian Berling, the platoon commander for 3rd platoon. “Being from England, a lot of these guys have never experienced anything like this,” Berling said. “Being out here in the heat and driving on the opposite side of the road is a completely new experience and it just makes the training they get that much better.” By teaching the courses for the Royal Marines and Dutch Marines, the course helped the Marines of 3rd Platoon expand their knowledge. “The Marines from 3rd Platoon did an absolutely fantastic job out here,” Berling said. “I’m really proud of how successful they have been in training their foreign counterparts, but I’m also excited to see them improving in their own ways and having a good time out here.” Video description credit: Lance Cpl.

The FRAM-2014/15 expedition arrived in Longyearbyen on August 22nd 2015 with the hovercraft Sabvabaa after drifting across the inaccessible Arctic Ocean during one year. Prof. Yngve Kristoffersen and Audun Tholfsen have during the FRAM-2014/15 ice drift station has made unique geological, sea ice, ocean and atmospheric measurements from the inaccessible Arctic Ocean during all four seasons. The hovercraft and the ice drift station were deployed off the East Siberian coast by the German icebreaker Polarstern on 30. August 2014. The station has drifted 1900 kilometres across the Arctic Ocean until it ended in the Fram Strait one year later. On 18th August the ice drift station was recovered by the sealer Havsel and Sabvabaa was escorted back to Longyearbyen. This completes the exceptional Norwegian FRAM-2014/15 ice drift station hosted by the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center in Bergen, Norway.
What is the role of sea ice as an element of the climate system? Is sea ice an indicator for climate changes? Is it possible to conclude from changes in sea ice to climate changes? All these are questions that we aim to answer with our work in the sea-ice physics section. Here you can see how we approached our main questions during a summer expedition into the Arctic with the research vessel POLARSTERN.

Burning Earth Radio - November 16th 2016 SAVE THE ARCTIC !!! 1) Sea ice is once again struggling to form in the Arctic. Sea ice is now at all time lows for this time of year. 2) Warming water in the Atlantic is being transported into the Arctic by the gulf stream ocean currents. This is generating huge temperature gradients and massive cyclones as the warm air mixes with cooler air in the Arctic. This is bringing crazy weather and rainstorms into the high Arctic regions. 3) The slow formation of the sea ice indicates a that climate feedback system has been engaged. In the coming years, we will likely see a complete melting of the Arctic as well as a reconfiguration of the ocean currents over the Arctic basin.

Audley Specialist Megan ventured to The Arctic and recorded this amazing footage using a GoPro. This is what she had to say about her adventure. The Arctic: one of the last frontiers on Earth, home to colossal glistening icebergs and vast arrays of wildlife. With a brief stop in Oslo, one of Scandinavia’s most stylish cities, I flew north to the small town of Tromso. The remote town is nestled on the far northern coastline of Norway. Discussions with locals show Tromso is clearly proud of its location, situated comfortably inside the southern edge of the Arctic Circle. The town has a distinct yet unfamiliar charm, with friendly residents and some impressive architecture making the stop an unexpected highlight. From Tromso my twelve night expedition voyage to Svalbard began, via reindeer-herding Norwegian Sami tribes and the misleadingly titled Bjørnøya (Bear Island). A Polar Bear sighting is in fact a near impossibility here outside of the impassable winter months, but the rugged cliffs are a much more popular destination for millions of nesting sea birds. On approach to Svalbard’s main island of Spitsbergen, the vast expanses of ocean unhurriedly transform into sea and drift ice. During the next nine days it became clear to me why Svalbard is a high priority destination for the wildlife enthusiast. Most notably the area has the world’s highest concentration of the usually elusive polar bear, and after multiple sightings on both land and ice there was no disappointment. If that wasn’t enough, the frequent polar bear sightings were interspersed with lounging walrus colonies, timid groups of reindeer, predatory arctic foxes and swarms of frantic seabirds. After soaking in the spectacular surroundings and scenery on foot, by kayak and zodiac cruise, we arrived at the departure point. The once thriving mining town of Longyearbyen is the perfect place to try out husky-sledding, which is certainly one of the most exhilarating and unique methods of transportation I have had the pleasure to undertake! Time to go home.

Arctic ABC is a collaborative project involving an international consortium of Marine research institutions. This introductory short film explains what this new research project will do, and why it matters. Arctic ABC will focus on providing essential new insight into a hitherto poorly known system, and to develop realistic projections relevant for ecosystem services and geopolitical consequences under circumstances of reduced ice cover. Virtually nothing is known about the overwintering strategies of key species in the Arctic Ocean, and their dependence on sea ice during the polar night and winter period, and predictions of their future under a decreasing ice-cover are frequently contradictory. Arctic ABC will fill these knowledge gaps by developing new autonomous observational platforms that will be deployed in the Arctic drift ice. This will for the first time allow real-time monitoring of the succession of ice associated communities in the Arctic Ocean during the polar night and winter-spring transition. By combining this novel approach with the well documented drift patterns of the Arctic pack ice and ocean circulation within the Arctic Ocean, we will utilize state-of-the-art modelling tools to provide much needed projections as to how climate-induced changes at the base of the food chain are likely to propagate through the Arctic ecosystem.

Additional images: At mark 2:47, we see ice mountain thunder into the sea at the edges to float in silent ice range lagoons. They then make their way southwards. At mark 3:15, we have the Antarctic continent the region of forbidden ice Range Mountain peaks. At mark 4:04 we have the icebergs which are sometimes 100m long. But even in this region there is still life. At mark 4:27, we have penguins, whales etc. there was a time when the names of some men are leading the way. Today, men come as scientists- oceanographers gathering information for all mankind about the ice, the sky and the deep sea currents as seen at mark 6:12. At mark 6:51, we have a diver going for exploration in the deep sea. At mark 7:01, we have tiny organisms in the depth with more concentration. There are mysteries whose answers may point new understanding for men. At mark 8:00, we have seals; how do seals find a breathing hole in the deep sea and how do whales dive 100 of ft in seconds and with the enormous change in pressure. At mark 9:26, we have scientists from various continents coming together to explore at the end of each winter. Navy brings in tones of equipments to enable living in such areas. New Zealand cooperates with the United states in scientific and logistic programs as seen at mark 9:50. At mark 10:10, we have their base. At mark 10:56, we have the scientist moving to explore a the arctic ocean. Unlike the Antarctic, it is mainly sea covered with ice. At mark 11:28, we have the director of the arctic program for the naval research who goes by Dr. Max Britton. He explains how the research program works. At mark 12:15, we have oceanographers learning secrets from the oceans with various experiments. We have Dr. Tom English who is interested in the distribution of animals in the sea, seasons in the sea and the various food chains and food webs. At mark13:05, we have experiments on the effect of sound in the region, the effect of sonar. The scientists collect organisms from the deep to learn about the effect of sonar at mark 13:35. Dr, Kevin Hunkins of Colombia University at mark 13:50 is conducting research on the shape and structure of the Arctic Ocean bottom, the drift of the ice and currents. At mark 15:48, we see a nuclear submarine which can stay in the thick ice for months. At mark 15:59, we have Admiral J.F. Covad, commanding officer to the submarine. He explained what they needed submarines for n exploration. Oceanographic studies are also done from far above the land as seen at mark 17:05. Gathering information of raw data in the field is only the beginning, the results are then brought back to the lab for analysis and evaluation as seen at mark 8:05. At Stanford research institute we have Dr. Thomas Potter at mark 18:18 who study mammals. At University of Alaska we have the analysis of sea water samples from the arctic as seen at mark 19:15. Studies into the relationships of polar environment and their animal populace are directed Dr. Max Dumbar of McGill University at mark 20:10. Change of heat in the atmosphere is been studied at various centers and this was done by Dr. Max Dunbar of McGill University. We have various simulations by scientists. At mark 23:50 we have one of the largest oil potential industry in Alaska, the oil is there but exploitation. From these labs, new knowledge has been gathered due to effort of scientists from different continents. At mark 25:40, we have the oceanographer of the Navy Rear Admiral O.D. Waters Jr. This film is part of the Periscope Film LLC archive, one of the largest historic military, transportation, and aviation stock footage collections in the USA.

Recently, the cruise ship 'The Crystal Serenity' became the first passenger liner to successfully run through the Northwest Passage. As climate change melts Arctic sea ice twice as fast as models predicted, more and larger ships have made their way along this area. According to Michael Byers, a professor in the political science department at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, the terrible irony with the Crystal Serenity's voyage is that it's taking place only because of climate change and the melting Arctic. The Passage, which connects the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, has long been blocked by ice. But melting brought on by climate change is now allowing passengers to cruise through it. http://hosted2.ap.org/APDEFAULT/386c25518f464186bf7a2ac026580ce7/Article_2016-09-09-US--Historic%20Arctic%20Cruise/id-a4e0c30aea6040e18fd43916872fd651 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor. An ice breaker is a special-purpose ship or boat designed to move and navigate through ice-covered waters, and provide safe waterways for other boats and ships. Although the term usually refers to ice-breaking ships, it may also refer to smaller vessels, such as the ice breaking boats that were once used on the canals of the United Kingdom. For a ship to be considered an icebreaker, it requires three traits most normal ships lack: a strengthened hull, an ice-clearing shape, and the power to push through sea ice. Ice breakers clear paths by pushing straight into ice pockets. The bending strength of sea ice is so low that usually the ice breaks without noticeable change in the vessel's trim. In cases of very thick ice, an icebreaker can drive its bow onto the ice to break it under the weight of the ship. Because a buildup of broken ice in front of a ship can slow it down much more than the breaking of the ice itself, icebreakers have a specially designed hull to direct the broken ice around or under the vessel. The external components of the ship's propulsion system (propellers, propeller shafts, etc.) are at even greater risk of damage than the vessel's hull, so the ability of an icebreaker to propel itself onto the ice, break it, and clear the debris from its path successfully is essential for its safety. Function of icebreakers. Finnish icebreaker Otso escorting a merchant ship in the Baltic Sea. Today, most icebreakers are needed to keep trade routes open where there are either seasonal or permanent ice conditions. While the merchant vessels calling ports in these regions are strengthened for navigation in ice, they are usually not powerful enough to manage the ice by themselves. For this reason, in the Baltic Sea, the Great Lakes and the Saint Lawrence Seaway, and along the Northern Sea Route, the main function of icebreakers is to escort convoys of one or more ships safely through ice-filled waters. When a ship becomes immobilized by ice, the icebreaker has to free it by breaking the ice surrounding the ship and, if necessary, open a safe passage through the ice field. In difficult ice conditions, the icebreaker can also tow the weakest ships. Some icebreakers are also used to support scientific research in the Arctic and Antarctic. In addition to ice breaking capability, the ships need to have reasonably good open water characteristics for transit to and from the polar regions, facilities and accommodation for the scientific personnel, and cargo capacity for supplying research stations on the shore. Countries such as Argentina and South Africa, which do not require icebreakers in domestic waters, have research icebreakers for carrying out studies in the polar regions. As offshore drilling moves to the Arctic seas, ice breaking vessels are needed to supply cargo and equipment to the drilling sites and protect the drill ships and oil platforms from ice by performing ice management, which includes for example breaking drifting ice into smaller floes and steering icebergs away from the protected object. In the past, such operations were carried out primarily in North America, but today Arctic offshore drilling and oil production is also going on in various parts of the Russian Arctic.

MUSIC: KYGO with firestone, norwegian talented artist. This song is just beautiful :) Kygis music goes so well with this, a lovesong, and this is a lovesong about my polarbears, my arctic culture...about SOULMATES... :)) This video, made me happy because arctic world are truly beautiful, I live in a part of it myself....SAD because we manage to destroy so much of our nature, our land with industri, wars and polution. Watch these majestic animals, in a truly majestic part of our world....look at the beauty, do we want to loose this? ;( ___________________________________________________ Consisting of deep ocean covered by drifting pack ice and surrounded by continents and archipelagos around the Earth's North Pole, the Arctic is the planet's largest and least fragmented inhabited region. But by the end of this century, the Arctic will be a very different place. Temperatures are warming more than twice as fast as they are for the planet as a whole. Sea ice is melting. Arctic wildlife and people are beginning to live altered lives. The polar bear or the sea/ice bear are the world's largest land predators. They can be found in the Artic, the U.S. (Alaska), Canada, Russia, Denmark (Greenland), and Norway.

Captain James Cook’s logs and maps give insight to late-18th century sea ice conditions north of Bering Strait. Polar Science Center mathematician Harry Stern used these records to plot the sea ice edge that Cook encountered in 1778. These earliest records of summer ice extent underscore the dramatic recent changes in Arctic climate.

NOME, ALASKA — High-end tourism came to one of the last wildernesses on the planet on Tuesday, when a huge luxury cruise ship entered Arctic waters. The Crystal Serenity is carrying 1,000 passengers, who have each paid at least $22,000 each for the privilege. The ship docked in Nome, Alaska on Monday, according to Capital Berg. Environmentalists say the cruise is taking advantage of climate change to sail in waters where ice has melted. The Crystal Serenity is accompanied by an ice-breaking boat and two helicopters but is expected to be able to navigate the Northwest Passage by itself. The green lobby says a successful voyage for the Crystal Serenity could open the floodgates to more cruise ships and therefore make climate change in the Arctic even worse. Residents of small settlements along the ship’s route aren’t complaining however. They’re ready to cash-in on the presence of free-spending tourists loaded with pockets full of dough. The mayor of Nome reported a brisk trade in products made of walrus ivory and sealskin before the Crystal Serenity left port on Tuesday, according to Capital Berg. ------------------------------------------------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.
