An information portal on the changing Arctic
The thawing and collapsing of the tundra, the shrinking profile of summer ice, and the thinning of the Greenland ice sheet and Antarctic ice caps are indications of a rapidly changing Arctic. Further Arctic warming could trigger climatic changes globally, making it more difficult to restore a stable climate. The consequences of Arctic warming, such as sea level rise, will affect us all.
