Expedition Arktika-2013 has successfully completed

Nuclear-powered icebreaker "Yamal" with members of the High-sea expedition "Arctic 2013" and evacuated drifting polar research station "North Pole-40" (SP-40) on board returned safely to Murmansk. 

Station SP-40 was established October 1, 2012 in the Arctic Ocean at latitude 85.2? north latitude 142.8? west longitude. The drifting ice floe about three kilometers wide and more than two meters thick landed 16 wintering. The search for a suitable ice base have been hampered by a record small amount of drift ice in the Arctic — an area of ice cover of the Arctic Ocean

In the Arctic, discovered a giant pool of fresh water

January 24. British Geophysics told about the huge pool of fresh water, which they found in the western Arctic Ocean. If over time the flow ENTERED entire amount in the North Atlantic, Europe is waiting for a serious climate change, says BBC.

The growing accumulation of atypical for the ocean of fresh water has reached a volume of about 8000 cubic kilometers. Fueled by the circulation of the Beaufort, it is only since 2002 has risen above the sea level by 15 centimeters.

Researchers from University College London (University College London) said that strong wind swirled flow

Arctic Ocean — the main theme of Expo 2012

The smallest of the oceans is a catastrophic threat to humanity.

These findings are increasingly scientists around the world. Arctic as part of a huge ocean will be the theme of the World Exhibition "Expo-2012" in the South Korean city of Yeosu.

Freshening of the Arctic Ocean and the melting of Arctic sea ice has led to the formation on the surface of the cold film that covers the warmer ocean currents. These changes are kept on their toes the entire international community, because they can lead to a radical change in climate. At the same time, the

The water in the North Atlantic has reached two thousand records

The water temperature in the North Atlantic, which is associated with the state of the Arctic Ocean, in the early 21st century has reached a record high values for the last two thousand years, according to a paper published in the journal Science.

Water from the North Atlantic Ocean, falling into the Arctic Ocean through Fram Strait (between Greenland and Spitsbergen), has a decisive impact on the entire Arctic basin, in particular, the area of ice. Until now, scientists have data on water temperature in the strait in just the last 150 years.

Arctic from the heat turned green

A perfect ice began to absorb more heat, and the tundra is covered with grass

Employees of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration USA (NOAA) concluded that the Arctic climate began a new phase, according to Associated Press. Ice, which darken in the process of melting, began to absorb more heat and solar radiation, and Tundra by increasing the temperature actively green.

Reports on the state of the Arctic published annually since 2006. They provide information about the atmosphere, ice and waters of the Arctic Ocean and the Arctic ecosystems and Greenland. This year, the report added
