Arctic Sea Ice May Expand Or Contract Over Next Decade, Before Disappearing By Mid-Century

Arctic Sea Ice May Expand Or Contract Over Next Decade, Before Disappearing By Mid-Century

"One of the results that surprised us all was the number of computer simulations that indicated a temporary halt to the loss of the ice," says NCAR scientist Jennifer Kay, the lead author. "The computer simulations suggest that we could see a 10-year period of stable ice or even a slight increase in the extent of the ice. Even though the observed ice loss has accelerated over the last decade, the fate of sea ice over the next decade depends not only on human activity but also on climate variability that cannot be predicted." (Science Daily ) Kay points out that though the fate of sea ice over the next decade may be in question--in these simulations Arctic sea ice was equally likely to expand or contract in the short-term under the climate conditions of the late 20th and early 21st century--but the fact that we will see an ice-free Arctic some time this century is not.
