NOAA Artic Warming Annual Update

Record Winter Ice Loss in Bering Sea Courtesy NOAA Innovation Technology Detailing Melt from Space and on the Surface Declining Arctic sea ice and rapidly changing climate.  These are the key findings of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration  Annual report on the impact of climate change on the Arctic.  NOAA is using highly innovative and advanced technology to track, measure and provide perspective on the melt.  The technology includes NOAA polar-orbiting satellites flying over and documenting the polar region 28 times a day. And unmanned tech collecting data on the surface and monitoring conditions 24/7 over long periods of time. Key Findings This report contains the research and analysis of 81 scientists from 12 nations working for governments and universities.  The key findings include: Lowest recorded winter ice in the Bering Sea Second lowest overall sea ice in the Arctic on record Second warmest air temperatures ever recorded in the Arctic Ea
