Record Sea Ice Minimum

On September 15, 2007, at the time of the Arctic sea ice minimum, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured an unusually clear view of the open Northwest Passage. Although clouds appeared over some of the Arctic in mid-September, skies were clear enough to allow Terra’s MODIS sensor to observe much of the sea ice and open ocean throughout the Arctic.

This image is a mosaic of Terra observations of the Arctic, taken on September 15-16, 2007. Overlain onto the image are sea ice minima from 2007 (medium blue), the previous record from 2005 (light blue), and the long-term average from 1979-2000 (gray). The 2007 minimum, which correlates closely with the ice visible through clouds in this image, fell substantially below previous records. In 2007, all Arctic sea ice records were broken in August, more than a month before the end of melt season.

The high-resolution version of this image appears at a resolution of 500 meters.

Our weather changes are speeding up. All of us will now notice differences in our temperatures and climate. A warning for the East Coast and Florida - if the ice melt continues along this path there will be drastic changes in store for the coastal areas. My Grandmother foretold of Florida becoming a wasteland. She prophesied that it would be completely covered in water, but the land would reappear in places to become a total waste filled area.


U.S. cites 'rapid changes' in Arctic
Temperature and sea ice indicators marked in red — as in alert


MSNBC staff and news service reports
Updated: 3:26 p.m. CT Oct 17, 2007

WASHINGTON - While some indicators have stabilized, the Arctic is seeing significant changes from warming temperatures and shrinking sea ice, the Bush administration said Wednesday in an annual report card on the region.

Sea ice fell well below the previous record, caribou are declining in many areas and permafrost is melting, according to the State of the Arctic report issued by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

"The bottom line is we are seeing some rapid changes in the Arctic," said Richard Spinrad, assistant administrator for oceanic and atmospheric research at NOAA.

And unlike Las Vegas, "what happens in the Arctic actually does not stay in the Arctic," he added, playing on a well-traveled slogan of the gambling mecca.

Scientists have expected polar regions to feel the first impacts of global warming and the 2006 State of the Arctic report provided a benchmark for tracking changes.

Red and yellow marks
Wednesday's follow-up was the first update, marking the atmosphere and sea ice indicators in red. The other indicators — Greenland, ocean, biology and land — were marked in yellow, or caution.

Winter and spring temperatures were all above average throughout the whole Arctic, said James Overland of NOAA's Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory in Seattle.

"This is unusual and looks like the beginning of a signal from global warming," Overland said in a telephone briefing.

If you go back 100 years, it would be warm in one part of the Arctic and cold in another, Overland said. "We're not getting that now."

Sea ice cover this year is 23 percent smaller than the past record low set in 2005 and 39 percent less than average, said Jacqueline Richter-Menge of the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory in Hanover, N.H.

She noted that the amount of older ice in the Arctic is significantly reduced, which makes it much more sensitive to change.

Vladimir Romanovsky of the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska at Fairbanks, said the warming is affecting the permafrost in Siberia, Alaska and other regions.

"This similarity of very different regions shows the changes are not local, they are on at least a hemispherical scale," Romanovsky said.

The report card did note that some permafrost areas appear to be stabilizing and that the deep waters off Alaska appear to be cooling.

But it emphasized that "collectively, the observations indicate that the overall warming of the Arctic system continued in 2007."

Some Caribou declines
Mike Gill, of the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Program in Whitehorse, Canada, said the largest declines in caribou are centered over Canada and parts of Alaska.

The herds are sensitive to changes in their range and sometimes have problems migrating in changing conditions, meaning that calving occurs before they get to new feeding grounds, resulting in higher mortality.

The tundra itself is "shrubifying," he said and the increased shrub cover over many regions affects habitat and local climate, since it tends to absorb more solar radiation.

The global goose population has been on the increase, he added, resulting in overgrazing in some areas.

Two as soon as things slow down around here I am going to start putting the prophecies in writing. I really need to do that. I can see more and more signs and events being realized. I need to do this before it is too late.

Hopefully I will get some free time next week.
