    With On Sea Ice, geophysicist W.F. Weeks delivers a natural history of sea ice, a fully comprehensive and up-to-date account of our knowledge of its creation, change, and function. The volume begins with the earliest recorded observations of sea ice, from BC, but the majority of its information is drawn from the period after , when.   Disappearing Arctic sea ice is making polar travel nearly impossible, says author and adventurer Eric Larsen in his new book about what may have been the last trek to the pole.

How sea ice influences the oceanography of underlying waters and the influences that sea ice has on humans living in Arctic regions are also discussed. Featuring 12 new On sea ice book, this edition follows two previous editions ( and ), and the need for this latest update shows just how rapidly the science of sea ice is developing.

"Thus, I unconditionally recommend this book to the serious student of climate change as well as to the more experienced researcher involved in any aspect of sea ice research as a most valuable resource on the subject of sea ice and its role in the global system." (Polar Biol, ).

Peter Wadhams has been studying ice first-hand sincecompleting 50 trips to the world's poles and observing for himself the changes over the course of nearly five decades. His conclusions are stark: the ice caps are melting.

Following the hottest summer on record, sea ice in September was the thinnest in recorded s: The current book presents the theory, observations, mathematical modelling techniques, and applications of sea ice drift science. The theory is presented from the beginning on a graduate student level, so that students and researchers coming from other fields such as physical oceanography, meteorology, physics, engineering, environmental.

Over the past 20 years the study of the frozen Arctic and Southern Oceans and sub-arctic seas has progressed at a remarkable pace.

This third edition of Sea Ice gives insight into the very latest. Covering more than seven percent of the earth’s surface, sea ice is crucial to the functioning of the biosphere—and is a key component in our attempts to understand and combat climate change.

With On Sea Ice, geophysicist W. Weeks delivers a natural history of sea ice, a fully comprehensive and up-to-date account of our knowledge of its creation, change, and function. About this book. Over the past 20 years the study of the frozen Arctic and Southern Oceans and sub-arctic seas has progressed at a remarkable pace.

This third edition of Sea Ice gives insight into the very latest understanding of the how sea ice is formed, how we measure (and model) its extent, the biology that lives within and associated with. How sea ice influences the oceanography of underlying waters and the influences that sea ice has on humans living in Arctic regions are also discussed.

Featuring twelve new chapters, this edition follows two previous editions ( and ), and the need for this latest update exhibits just how rapidly the science of sea ice is developing.

Sea Ice, second edition, is an essential purchase for oceanographers and marine scientists, environmental scientists, biologists, geochemists and geologists. All those involved in the study of global climate change will find this book to contain a wealth of important information.

Increasingly sea ice is being used as a proxy for extraterrestrial ice covered systems. Sea Ice provides a comprehensive review of our current available knowledge of polar pack ice, the study of which is severely constrained by the logistic difficulties of working in such harsh and remote regions of the earth.

The book’s editors, Drs Thomas. The book is based on several decades of research related to sea ice in the Arctic and its variability, sea ice process studies as well as implications of the sea ice variability on human activities.

The chapters provide an extensive overview of the research results related to sea ice in the Arctic at paleo-scales to more resent scales of.

Even in a warmer world, it will get cold and dark in the Arctic winter and sea ice will form – likely for centuries. But that winter ice will melt away during summer. Sea ice will be but a seasonal feature of the Arctic Ocean.

Published by the University of Alaska Press This book is a global look at the changes in sea ice and the tools and techniques used to measure and record those changes. The first comprehensive research done on sea-ice field techniques, this volume will be indispensable for the study of northern sea ice and a must-have for scientists in the field of climate change research.

Sea Ice: Physics and Remote Sensing addresses experiences acquired mainly in Canada by researchers in the fields of ice physics and growth history in relation to its polycrystalline structure as well as ice parameters retrieval from remote sensing observations.

The volume describes processes operating at the macro- and microscale (e.g., brine entrapment in sea ice, crystallographic texture of. This book provides an advanced introduction to the science behind automated prediction systems, focusing on sea ice analysis and forecasting. Starting from basic principles, fundamental concepts in sea ice physics, remote sensing, numerical methods, and statistics are explained at an accessible level.

Sea Ice provides a comprehensive review of our current available knowledge of polar pack ice, the study of which is severely constrained by the logistic difficulties of working in such harsh and remote regions of the earth. The book’s editors, Drs Thomas and Dieckmann have drawn together an impressive group of international contributing.

In Sir Ernest Shackleton set out with his crew aboard the ship the 'Endurance'. He wanted to sail to Antarctica, but miles from the South Pole, the Endurance became trapped in a sea of ice. Against all odds, Shackleton undertook a journey that led to the rescue.

Sea, Ice and Rock is the story of this epic journey. With both Bonington and Knox-Johnston having little experience in the other’s craft, their expedition was not without difficulty. But through one another’s support, the two men and their team sailed from Britain to Greenland, going on to twice attempt the Lemon Mountain’s forbidding.

By exploring indigenous people’s knowledge and use of sea ice, the SIKU project has demonstrated the power of multiple perspectives and introduced a new field of interdisciplinary research, the study of social (socio-cultural) aspects of the natural world, or what we call the social life of sea.

Endurance was the three-masted barquentine in which Sir Ernest Shackleton and a crew of 27 men and one cat sailed for the Antarctic on the – Imperial Trans-Antarctic was launched in from Sandefjord in Norway; three years later, she was crushed by pack ice and sank in the Weddell Sea off Antarctica.

National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) scientists and colleagues predicted via a paper in The Cryosphere that the ice caps would melt out completely within the next five years, and recent images from NASA’s Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer have confirmed that this prediction was accurate.

Sea ice arises as seawater freezes. Because ice is less dense than water, it floats on the ocean's surface (as does fresh water ice, which has an even lower density).

Sea ice covers about 7% of the Earth's surface and about 12% of the world's oceans. Much of the world's sea ice is enclosed within the polar ice packs in the Earth's polar regions: the Arctic ice pack of the Arctic Ocean and the.

On Sea Ice begins with the earliest recorded observations of sea ice, from BC, but the majority of its information is drawn from the period afterwhen detailed study of sea ice became widespread.

Sea ice begins as thin sheets of smooth nilas in calm water (top) or disks of pancake ice in choppy water (2 nd image).

Individual pieces pile up to form rafts and eventually solidify (3 rd image). Over time, large sheets of ice collide, forming thick pressure ridges along the margins (4 th image). (Nilas, pancake, and ice raft photographs courtesy Don Perovich, Cold Regions Research and.

Per the University of Bremen: Thin sea ice occurs during the freezing season.

In the melting season, the thickness of sea ice is highly variable and the emission properties in the microwave change due to the wetness of the surface and occurrence of melt ponds in the Arctic.
