Modeling Arctic Waters — The realities of sea ice are changing, with Arctic sea ice extent decreasing by about 12% per decade since the late 1970s. Arctic sea ice is losing area, thickness, and volume. Scientists are using innovative data gathering methods and high-tech computational models to decode these changes and to help predict the future of Arctic waters and Arctic sea ice in our changing climate.
Modeling Arctic Waters
Scientists can model how sea-ice melts, the movement of glaciers, Arctic weather conditions and much more with supercomputers. These models help us understand Arctic trends and help predict the future of climate change.
