Record #188677:

Contrasting climate change in the two polar regions / John Turner, James Overland.

Title: Contrasting climate change in the two polar regions / John Turner, James Overland.
Author(s): Turner, John.
Overland, James.
Date: 2009.
In: Polar Research. (2009.), Vol. 28(2) (2009)
Abstract: Discusses remarkably different climatic changes in recent decades in two polar regions. Arctic has seen marked reduction in sea-ice extent throughout year, with peak in autumn. New record minimum event occurred in 2007, which was 40% below long-term climatological mean. In contrast, extent of Antarctic sea ice has increased, with greatest growth being in autumn. There has been large-scale warming across much of Arctic, with resultant loss of permafrost and reduction in snow cover. Bulk of Antarctic has experienced little change in surface temperature over past 50 years, although slight cooling has been evident around coast of east Antarctica since 1980.
