Marine Climate Change Produced by Arctic Ice Melt

November 20, 2008

 

Andy Pershing of the School of Marine Sciences and the Gulf of Maine Research Institute together with Chuck Greene of Cornell have produced a new assessment and prediction of marine climate change effects produced by ice melt in the Arctic, whose propagation into the Gulf of Maine depends on atmospheric circulation in the Arctic and on coastal currents that form from the fresh water released through the Canadian Archipelago into the Labrador Sea.  For further details, see the press releases from the National Science Foundation and the Ecological Society of America.
