In this book the eminent authors analyse the ice cover variability in the Arctic Seas during the 20 th and early 21 st centuries. In the first two chapters, they show that multi-year changes of the sea-ice extent in the Arctic Seas were formed by linear trends and long-term (climatic) cycles lasting about 10, 20 and 60 years. The structure of temporal variability of the western region (Greenland - Kara) differs significantly from the eastern region seas (Laptev and Chukchi). In the latter region, unlike the former area, relatively short-period cycles (up to 10 years) predominate. The linear…mehr

In this book the eminent authors analyse the ice cover variability in the Arctic Seas during the 20 th and early 21 st centuries. In the first two chapters, they show that multi-year changes of the sea-ice extent in the Arctic Seas were formed by linear trends and long-term (climatic) cycles lasting about 10, 20 and 60 years. The structure of temporal variability of the western region (Greenland - Kara) differs significantly from the eastern region seas (Laptev and Chukchi). In the latter region, unlike the former area, relatively short-period cycles (up to 10 years) predominate. The linear trends can be related to a super-secular cycle of climatic changes over about 200 years. The most significant of these cycles, lasting 60 years, is most pronounced in the western region seas.

Rezensionen
From the reviews: "This brief, specialized, technical book by Frolov and colleagues (all, Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute, Russia) can be used by environmental science students and professionals in the field, especially those monitoring ice caps. ... The data harvested from the Eurasian Arctic shelf seas might be very useful for scientists ... . Summing Up: Recommended. ... Upper-division undergraduates through professionals in environmental sciences." (A. M. Hamza, Choice, Vol. 47 (7), March, 2010)
