Warm Winter Cyclone Damaged Arctic Sea Ice Pack

272 ratings | 32297 views
A large cyclone that crossed the Arctic in December 2015 brought so much heat and humidity to this otherwise frigid environment that it thinned and shrunk the sea ice cover during a time when the ice should have been growing.

NASA, I'm sorry most of these comments are stupid and weird. There are people that aren't like that who enjoy your content. Keep up the good work

thank you so much NASA!!!!! We will miss you.

Some Context on sea ice prior to the 1979 satellite record. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6ZHfkDjveZzXzVnTllQVm91RFk/view?usp=sharing "It will without doubt have come to your Lordship's knowledge that a considerable change of climate, inexplicable at present to us, must have taken place in the Circumpolar Regions, by which the severity of the cold that has for centuries past enclosed the seas in the high northern latitudes in an impenetrable barrier of ice has been during the last two years, greatly abated.(This) affords ample proof that new sources of warmth have been opened and give us leave to hope that the Arctic Seas may at this time be more accessible than they have been for centuries past, and that discoveries may now be made in them not only interesting to the advancement of science but also to the future intercourse of mankind and the commerce of distant nations."  President of the Royal Society, London, to the Admiralty, 20th November, 1817 [13]

So why did the low move northwards? Wouldn't the warm low produce cloud cover thus generating snow?
NASA Goddard (2 years ago)
Snow doesn't happen much above 40 degrees F.

Do you totally understand global warming ... let's start with the universe and how earth travels thru the galactic plane... each time it travels thru it changes where the magnetic fields from the Milky Way hits earth moving the poles slightly allowing for the ice caps to melt as they rearrange their positions . Then the ionosphere reproduction was thought to come from the sun... wrong! The ionosphere is or was created from the inside out from our thunderstorms ! Now you have or had military projects using Nikola Tesla's HAARP technology that sends up a radio signal that returns back to earth a million times stronger than it went up! It's removing the protection from the sun making a normal event out of control !

Nothing you have said is scientifically valid.

No me lo puedo creer, que horror

and how do scientists know that the melt isn't a good thing? what will we find buried up there? this is a planet after all and massive changes come due to tiny changes with our sun and the earth's tilt.

We'll find water buried up there.
Dumb Turtle (2 years ago)
maxcap60 the problem is is that you are a random guy on the internet with theories. NASA is a government agency with orbital research tools and funding and has amassed (along with other nonprofit organizations, government and intergovernmental agencies) mountains of research science articles and papers. All following the same process of hypothesis, observation, experimentation, and conclusion.

the ice reflects sunlight, and dark water absorbs it.. that isn't good

Super informative video! It's scary to think what the future might bring.

Sooo don't have kids cause we're all gona be burning soon? I don't really want kids but this is a good point I can make to my wife to not have any. 😎💪🏻

It's amazing how far the Chinese will go to perpetuate this global warming/climate change hoax. /s
Collin MacInnis (2 years ago)
kcthewanderer rofl.. the Chinese.. go live there.. see what humanities effect upon an environment can become... the fact there actually speaking up.. may just want to pay attention to a society that is mired in ill effects

kcthewanderer like me throw rock up.. if i stand there.. odds rock hits me
Collin MacInnis (2 years ago)
kcthewanderer to quantify something does not support one side or the other.. its data to be used.. if it leads in a general direction that supports a analytical assumption.. well I'm glade i do not ask you for investment advice :p

Greenland plays a major roll in North Atlantic winds.. being a machinist that owes there pay to work in Ocean science.. nice to see feed back into something I may have played a hand in

forget the numbers.. but something like 2 to 4 %

Don't worry its freezing and it will be OK.

There's a radical solution to global warming, a miniature nuclear winter. I believe this subject should be studied very well and very fast.

wealthy people will be JUST fine, in their communities. with better air conditioning. protected. watch as the death tolls rise each summer.
kim weaver (7 months ago)
The Total Solar Irradiance has been falling for more than 35 years...... WHILE the Global Average Surface Temperature has been RISING during the same period. Care to explain THAT? So, no chance of a cooling climate, possibly not for 16,000 years, and perhaps not even then.

Well there you go !

+Took the Red Pill we're passed solar maximum, it's output has actually been pretty quiet lately.   Solarham.net   check it out for up to the minute imagery.   and you can even verify it yourself with a filtered telescope.

+1900stratoliner Excellent point

Air conditioning is great. The hot wind out of liberal idiots is the danger.
