Join Frontier Scientists studying oceans and sea ice.
Sea ice is 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; those changes impact global climate conditions and sea levels.
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. They’re modeling Arctic waters.
