New research suggests that phytoplankton is blooming in arctic waters below sea ice. Due to rising temperatures in the Arctic, skylights are forming in sea ice that allow sunlight to pass through the ice and into the waters below. With similar conditions covering 30-percent of the ice-covered Arctic Ocean, micro-algae is booming as a result. But the team of researchers were stunned to discovery a sprawling bloom of the microscopic plants. But sea ice has thinned as average annual temperatures continue to rise. The researchers found that meltwater pools on top of the ice that allow light to pass through are becoming more prevalent. https://www.sciencenews.org/article/thinning-ice-creates-undersea-arctic-greenhouses http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Arctic sea ice is now drifting faster and farther than it used to, potentially transporting more pollution across national boundaries. This video shows ice traveling progressively farther afield between 1982 and 2012. Ice formed in Russian waters is light blue; Iceland, yellow; Greenland, green; Canada, red; United States, dark blue.

This video is about the TOPtoTOP Expedition, trapped in the Pack Ice in the Arctic near the East Greenland Coast in July 2017 for 16 hours. We were 12 people. Sabine is expecting our next child on the 21st of August: We were trapped for 16 hours in the Arctic pack ice on our attempt to make landfall close to Turner Island, where the Inuits have found a hot spring. Unfortunately, there were too many clouds to define the exact density of pack ice from the sat picture. The ice chart was about one week old and underestimated the pack ice. We could see a stretch of open water close to shore on the sat pic that leads finally to the settlement of Ittoqqotoormiit, but there was no way to pass the heavy pack. It was time-consuming and not easy to find a way out in the sometimes dense fog, that is created by the cold ice. We used all our senses and suddenly heard some surf, expecting it from the swell that crashes against the outer line of the pack. Like this, we had an idea about the shortest distance out of the pack and in which direction to navigate to get free and back in open waters. The radar was useless because the flat pack didn't reflect the signal very well. Close to the limit of the pack ice the fog disappeared. From the top of the mast, we could see the open sea but at first no way through the last barrier of ice. It took Dario a while to study the ice to define the most promising channel to risk an attempt. All hands were on deck, outfitted with fenders and a stick to push the ice. Thanks to the great team work of each crew member, we managed to come through. We changed our strategy and sailed Northeast in open waters along the edge of the pack. From an older satellite picture, we hoped that we have a chance to get through this belt of ice coming more from the North into Scoresby Sound. Unfortunately, it did not get better and we changed course on 70 N / 20 W towards Grimsey Island at the Arctic Circle.

(17 Jul 2017) More than a century has passed since the first successful transit of the treacherous, ice-bound Northwest Passage by Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen in 1906. Now The Associated Press is sending a text, video and photo team through the passage, where global warming is melting sea ice and glaciers at an historic rate, altering and opening up the Arctic in a way unprecedented in recorded history. Although the passage presents an attractive shortcut for maritime traffic between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, only a dozen or two vessels attempt to navigate the poorly charted Canadian Arctic Archipelago during the brief summer window each year. Many are sturdy coast guard icebreakers, adventure cruises and thrill-seekers in small, nimble boats hoping to pick their way through fields of floating ice that can easily strand unprepared mariners. Some also consider the Northwest Passage a future alternative for freighters aiming to save fuel on the route from Asia to Europe, and there have been several test runs over the years. The region has become a magnet for nations wanting to tap into the Arctic's rich oil reserves and other natural resources and for scientists seeking to understand global warming and its impacts on the sea and wildlife. The AP is accompanying an international group of researchers for a weeks-long expedition on MSV Nordica, a 27-year-old Finnish government-owned icebreaker, to view firsthand the changes taking place in one of the planet's most forbidding corners. The voyage began July 5 in Vancouver, British Columbia, entered the passage at the Bering Strait nine days later and ends in Greenland toward the end of July.

Driving across the Arctic Ocean in the dead of winter. A short clip of our expedition Land Rover 101 and Land Rover Discovery on the way to Tuktoyaktuk, DRIVE THE GLOBE | Overland Adventures went to the Arctic Circle and beyond! On March 8, 2007 we departed from Edmonton Alberta Canada and headed North. The ultimate goal was the Arctic Circle via the Dempster Highway. The trek continued over winter ice roads and ultimately reached Tuktoyaktuk, a small village on the Beaufort Sea (part of the Arctic Ocean). Along the way the expedition travelled through the beautiful scenery of Northern British Columbia to Whitehorse, a small town in the Yukon Territory. It then continued through the gold rush town of Dawson City and then on to Inuvik. A large distance was covered in a fairly short period of time. All told, over 4800 miles were driven on this adventure of a lifetime. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• SUBSCRIBE FOR MORE: https://www.youtube.com/drivetheglobe ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• CONNECT WITH US: https://www.instagram.com/drivetheglobe/ https://twitter.com/DriveTheGlobe https://www.facebook.com/drivetheglobe/ For more info about DRIVE THE GLOBE, please check out: http://www.drivetheglobe.com For swag, head on over to our GearShoppe: https://www.drivetheglobe.com/shop/

The Arctic sea-ice extent has shown a declining trend over the past 30 years. Ice coverage reached historic minima in 2007 and again in 2012. This trend has recently been assessed to be unique over at least the last 1450 years. In the summer of 2010, a very low sea-ice concentration (SIC) appeared at high Arctic latitudes---even lower than that of surrounding pack ice at lower latitudes. This striking low ice concentration---referred to here as a record low ice concentration in the central Arctic (CARLIC)---is unique in our analysis period of 2003--15, and has not been previously reported in the literature. The CARLIC was not the result of ice melt, because sea ice was still quite thick based on in-situ ice thickness measurements. Instead, divergent ice drift appears to have been responsible for the CARLIC. A high correlation between SIC and wind stress curl suggests that the sea ice drift during the summer of 2010 responded strongly to the regional wind forcing. The drift trajectori es of ice buoys exhibited a transpolar drift in the Atlantic sector and an eastward drift in the Pacific sector, which appeared to benefit the CARLIC in 2010. Under these conditions, more solar energy can penetrate into the open water, increasing melt through increased heat flux to the ocean. We speculate that this divergence of sea ice could occur more often in the coming decades, and impact on hemispheric SIC and feed back to the climate. http://18.104.22.168/aas/EN/10.1007/s00376-017-7066-6

t is being billed as the biggest single Arctic research expedition ever planned. Germany is going to sail its 120m-long research vessel, the Polarstern, into the sea-ice at the top of the world and just let it get stuck so it can drift across the north pole. The 2,500km (1,550-mile) trip, to begin in 2019, is likely to take a year. Researchers hope to gather valuable new insights on the region where Earth's climate is changing fastest. Last month the extent of Arctic sea-ice was the lowest ever recorded for a January (during the satellite era), with temperatures several degrees above the long-term average. Prof Markus Rex will lead the so-called MOSAiC project: "The decline of Arctic sea-ice is much faster than the climate models can reproduce and we need better climate models to make better predictions for the future. "There is a potential that in a few decades the Arctic will be ice free in summer. That would be a different world and we need to know about that in advance; we need to know is that going to happen or will that not happen? "Prof Rex outlined the plan for the Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate here at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). The German scientist, who is affiliated to the Alfred Wegener Institute in Potsdam, said the €63m (£54m; $67m) expedition was very nearly all funded, and would have key contributions from international partners. Other European states, such as the UK, are involved - so too the Americans, the Russians and the Chinese.

Witnessed by the Copernicus Sentinel-1 mission on 12 July 2017, a lump of ice more than twice the size of Luxembourg broke off the Larsen C ice shelf, spawning one of the largest icebergs on record and changing the outline of the Antarctic Peninsula forever. Over the following two months, systematic observations from Sentinel-1 showed that the A68 berg remained close, buffeting back and forth against the ice shelf. It was unclear what would happen to the berg because they can remain in one place for years. However, the mission has revealed that A68 is now on the move and drifting out to sea. Images from 16 September show that there is a gap of about 18 km as the berg appears to be turning away from the shelf. http://www.esa.int/spaceinimages/Images/2017/09/Giant_berg_on_the_move Credit: ESA Copyright contains modified Copernicus Sentinel data (2017), processed by ESA, CC BY-SA 3.0 IGO Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 IGO (CC BY-SA 3.0 IGO) Music credit: YouTube Audio Library It's Coming - Josh Kirsch & Media Right Productions

What is DRIFT ICE? What does DRIFT ICE mean? DRIFT ICE meaning - DRIFT ICE definition - DRIFT ICE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Drift ice is any sea ice other than fast ice, the latter being attached ("fastened") to the shoreline or other fixed objects (shoals, grounded icebergs, etc.). Drift ice is carried along by winds and sea currents, hence its name. When drift ice is driven together into a large single mass (70% coverage), it is called pack ice. Wind and currents can pile up that ice to form ridges up to several metres in height. These represent a challenge for icebreakers and offshore structures operating in cold oceans and seas. Drift ice consists of floes, individual pieces of sea ice 20 metres (66 ft) or more across. There are names for various floe sizes: small – 20 metres (66 ft) to 100 metres (330 ft); medium – 100 metres (330 ft) to 500 metres (1,600 ft); big – 500 metres (1,600 ft) to 2,000 metres (6,600 ft); vast – 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) to 10 kilometres (6.2 mi); and giant – more than 10 kilometres (6.2 mi). Seasonal ice drift in the Sea of Okhotsk by the northern coast of Hokkaido, Japan has become a tourist attraction of this area with harsh climate, and is one of the 100 Soundscapes of Japan. The Sea of Okhotsk is the southernmost area in the Northern hemisphere where drift ice may be observed. The two major ice packs are the Arctic ice pack and the Antarctic ice pack. The most important areas of pack ice are the polar ice packs formed from seawater in the Earth's polar regions: the Arctic ice pack of the Arctic Ocean and the Antarctic ice pack of the Southern Ocean. Polar packs significantly change their size during seasonal changes of the year. Because of vast amounts of water added to or removed from the oceans and atmosphere, the behavior of polar ice packs has a significant impact on global changes in climate.

Arctic sea ice levels hit a record low for a third consecutive year. Scientists with NASA and the National Snow and Ice Data Center measured sea ice covering 14.42 million square kilometers. According to recordkeeping dating back to 1979, that is the smallest maximum extent of arctic ice on record. Compared to last year's record low, ice covering the Arctic Ocean lost about 100,000 square kilometers. Satellite observations also showed that winter ice levels are also thinner when compared to recent years. Those observations suggest that unusually warm autumn and winter temperatures have had a global effect. https://www.sciencenews.org/blog/science-ticker/arctic-sea-ice-hits-record-wintertime-low http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

ALEXANDRA LAND, RUSSIA — Russia’s Defence Ministry has released a “virtual tour” of the country's new Arctic military base. The Arkticheskiy Trilistnik or “Arctic Trefoil” base has been built on the Russian territory of Alexandra Land, an island in the Franz Josef Land Archipelago in the Arctic Ocean. The 14,000 sqm base is built on stilts, which are designed to help it withstand extreme cold weather that can reach as low as minus 40 degrees Celsius. The base will house 150 personnel on a 18-month period of duty. The main components of the base remain top-secret but the Russian military said the facility is equipped with a clinic, library, chapel, gym and cinema, according to BBC News. Military experts said the new base will help Russia to control international shipping on the Northern Sea Route and protect the country’s oil and gas resources in the Arctic. Russia is building four more military bases in the Arctic region. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Crying dog breaks the internet’s heart — but this sad dog story has a happy ending" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4prKTN9bYQc -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Creatures living among the hydrothermal vents burbling under the Arctic Ocean's ice layer have been historically difficult to study, but an underwater vehicle, the Nereid Under Ice, can get close to the vents to peek in at the animals and their homes without disturbing their environment with icebreaking ships. Scientific American caught up with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution senior scientist, Chris German, on the R/V Neil Armstrong to discuss how studying these Arctic dwellers could shape our understanding of how life evolved. Subscribe to our channel: https://www.youtube.com/SciAmerican Transcript: The Arctic became a really interesting challenge because we know there are hydrothermal vents there...what's going to be living there? We know we can answer the question if we could just go down and look. We're standing on the back deck of Woods Hole's newest research ship the R/V Neil Armstrong and what we have behind us is the Nereid Under Ice. It's one of our newest robotic vehicles that's being designed specifically for studying ice-covered oceans here on Earth. We've got photographs of hydrothermal vents, but we haven't been able to go down and study them in detail and this is the only kind of technology that could do that. The way we've been able to study the unperturbed system in the past is using ice breakers where by breaking holes in the ice there's a danger you're perturbing the system just by getting there in the first place. And so what we've designed is a vehicle that you can launch from an ice breaker but it can then swim laterally under the ice to get to the unperturbed system and study it in new ways. The first thing you see on the back are the little black pods with the orange propellers on them. So those are the thrusters that's what we actually use to control how the vehicle moves left and right and forwards and back. We have the high-definition camera, so that's where we do our video sensing and what we also have in there is a whole science payload of things that can measure for example the basic physical parameters of the ocean -- how salty it is, its temperature...As you find hydrothermal vents on the seafloor in every different ocean, you don't find the same animals inhabiting that thing niche. There are different animals that have evolved to adapt to the same environmental conditions. If we could understand where the barriers are between the different populations where these biogeographic provinces are, that could actually teach us something not just about how hydrothermal vents work, but actually how evolution of biology works in the world's oceans so like a fundamental question of how does biological evolution exist

Climate change continues to make its presence felt on our planet. One area that's warmed-up more than other parts of the globe is the Arctic. That warming has caused ice in the region to thin, leaving polar bears nowhere to turn. CGTN's Hendrik Sybrandy reports. Merav Ben-David, a professor at the University of Wyoming, has been studying polar bears for years now. From Russia to Alaska, their arctic habitats are melting under their feet. They hunt on sea ice. Ocean currents and the wind push that ice to the west, away from landmasses like Alaska. “They always had to walk against the drift to remain in Alaska,” she said. That thinning ice doesn’t weigh as much. According to Ben-David, that means that the polar bears have to walk more, or faster, because the ice drifts faster. It’s like walking down an up escalator. It’s not a normal action. You expend a lot more effort than if you were going in the opposite direction and you don’t get very far. It’s a real challenge for female polar bears with cubs.

For hundreds of years, European explorers sought a direct sea route from Europe to Asia. Now as Arctic ice melts, just such a route is opening across northern Russia. In August a Russian-owned tanker carrying liquefied natural gas made the trip from Norway to South Korea - the first time a ship of this kind did so without an icebreaker. Though the route is still closed by ice much of the year, the ice is thawing rapidly - and Russian President Vladimir Putin hopes it will transport lots of Russian oil and gas and eventually become "the Suez of the north."

Our climate is changing, with industrial production, habitat, transport and everyday human activities acknowledged as causes of global warming. The Gulf Stream and the Next Ice Age is a one-hour documentary which explores the results of a recent American government report that believes the collapse of thermohaline circulation will take place around the year 2010 and impose a minor ice age on Europe. Could Dublin acquire a climate like Spitzberg, and London like that of Siberia? The Gulf Stream is a powerful surface current, driven by the Trade Winds. Its origins lie in the Gulf of Mexico and it carries the tropical waters from the Florida Strait to the great banks of the United States, where it heads eastward, carrying its warm waters to the borders of the North Atlantic. As soon as the tropical waters hit the Arctic Ocean, they cool abruptly and plunge towards the abyssal zone to form a loop, known as "thermohaline circulation." Then, like an immense conveyor belt that slows down in the ocean depths, it sets out again southward to rejoin the beginning of the Gulf Stream.

As more freshwater flows into the Atlantic Ocean, it weakens the Gulf Stream, and that could be bad news for the global climate.

This 1965 unclassified U.S. Navy training film MN-10167 provides details about three oceanographic prediction systems: Sea-Ice Forecasting, Wave Forecasting, and ASWEPS. With the advent of rocket launches such as Polaris A-1 (1:04-1:15) from nuclear submarines, new oceanographic methods were needed for the Arctic Ocean. The Sea-Ice Forecasting Program supported Thule Air Base in Greenland (3:17) and early warning sites (3:23). Nuclear Skate-class submarines such as the Nautilus, Sargo, and Sea Dragon needed to prevent damage when surfacing through ice (4:26). The Naval Oceanographic Office (Navoceano) gathered data from various above and below sources for its Forecasting Center (5:23). These included a DC3 airplane (5:46), a GB5 icebreaker ship (6:41), nuclear submarines, the ARLIS II manned drifting ice station (7:06), experimental portable automatic weather stations (7:35), and joint weather satellite projects with the US Weather Bureau and the Canadian government (8:00). The data was received on high-speed teleprinters (8:45). In 1964, data collection was extended to the Antarctic Ocean to support Operation Deep Freeze, the Navy’s logistic support for the scientific probe at Antarctica. The HMNZS Endeavour (10:51) is shown unloading at the McMurdo Station on Ross Island. Such ships received information from radio teletypes (11:27). On the flying laboratory planes, new equipment includes an infrared temperature sensor (13:12) and buoy tracking devices (13:15). This information is sent to an IBM 7074 (13:37-13:47) data processor. Wave forecasting was needed for creating synoptic and prognostic wave charges and long-range forecasts. Data was sent to computers (15:53) and an Alden Flat Copy Scanner (16:03) distributed charts by radio facsimile broadcasts. NASA also requested wave charts for the barge Promise (16:47-17:10), which transported the Saturn rocket boosters down the Mississippi River. Wave information was also gathered from Argus Island, a Naval research platform 22 miles off Bermuda. Tools shown to transmit data to the lab are a current meter (17:49), a thermistor chain (17:59), and a wave staff (18:13). Another project used sensors to measure both direct solar and reflected radiation (18:45). Airplane stereo photography needed aerial readers to view the photos (19:27). Data continued to be sent to high speed computers and XY plotters, such as the CALCOMP 565 (20:23). ASWEPS (anti-submarine warfare environmental prediction service) was created in the late 1950s to provide oceanographic and meteorological factors. One of its first new projects was to develop a sea surface temperature model. A mechanical bathythermograph (22:15), also known as a BT, was used to measure water temperatures at various depths. An airborne expendable BT is dropped from an aircraft (23:23-24:12) and a shipboard expendable BT is deployed (24:15-24:40). Also used is a near surface reference temperature device (24:51-25:24) and an airborne wave profiler (25:32). A NOMAD buoy (25:44-26:16) gathers information. Data is sent to IBM computers using magnetic tapes (27:50) and a curved follower printer is used for printing (28:07). The success of these new ways of gathering information were proven aboard the USS Gillis ship in 1964. In 1966, a new Oceanographic Air Survey Unit was formed (29:04) under CDRM H.R. Hutchinson.

Satellite altimetry with high inclination orbit allowing an optimal coverage in high latitudes, enables to determine variations in Arctic and Antactic sea ice throughout the year and over longer periods. The use of Ka-band observations from Saral/AltiKa are giving scientists new tools for analysis. In the last 20 years, the extent of sea ice has decreased significantly as a result of climate change. The decrease of the sea ice extent is a problematic phenomena since the ice reflects the sun energy. Without ice, the sun radiations are absorbed by the ocean, thus increasing the warming.In Arctic Ocean, the decline of the sea ice extent has accelerated since 2006. Here is an animation of the proportion of sea ice measurements from Saral/AltiKa waveforms classification from Oct. 2014 (available by playing the animation). Waveform classification in function of the return echo shape enables to discriminate sea ice from ocean and allows to deduce sea ice fraction. Areas with low proportion of ocean measurements (in white) highlight sea ice which is minima at the end of summer. Credits CLS/CNES.

In 1845 Franklin and 128 crewmen sailed from England in search of the North-West Passage through the Arctic. The men and their two ships, Erebus and Terror, would never return. Why was Franklin chosen to lead the expedition? He was 59 when the expedition set sail from Greenhithe in Kent and had been 'out of action' in terms of Arctic exploration for some time. He was however a popular figure and a leading magnetic scientist. That Franklin brought his two ships to Magnetic North was an unprecedented feat of navigational skill. However disaster would strike when the crew were forced to abandon the ships after they had become stuck in the ice. All 129 men would perish in what has become an enduring mystery. One which we are only now starting to unravel. In 2014 the wreck of HMS Erebus was discovered under the Arctic ice, followed by the discovery of HMS Terror in 2016. The Death In The Ice exhibition at London's National Maritime Museum displays items recovered from the ships - many on display for the first time. These items along with other art, artefacts and curiosities help to piece together the story of Franklin and his lost men. Until January 2017.

SAMS is leading two major UK Arctic research projects that will help us better understand and predict the rapid environmental changes in the region. The two SAMS projects, Arctic PRIZE (www.sams.ac.uk/arctic-prize) and DIAPOD (www.sams.ac.uk/diapod) aim to help us understand these changes in the Arctic and how they will affect the climate, ocean properties, marine life and food stocks across the northern hemisphere. They will benefit from SAMS’ expertise in marine biology, physical oceanography and marine robotics. The Arctic region has seen the most dramatic changes in climate over the past few decades, with ice melting at a quicker rate each year because of rapid warming. While the daily average global temperature rose by 0.55 degrees Celsius from 1979 – 2000, the temperature in the Arctic rose by 6.42 degrees Celsius for the same period. The average Arctic sea ice cover for November 2016 set a record low, leading to suggestions that sea ice cover could be at a tipping point, from which that the region may not recover.
