    Researchers uncover errors in Arctic Ocean climate models

    (ORDO NEWS) — Norwegian and American scientists compared the results of calculations of climate models of the Arctic Ocean with the results of real observations and identified errors. This applies to forecasts, descriptions of the structure of the ocean layers, as well as the nature of the movement of deep water flows. “At this point in time, we simply cannot give a reliable estimate of how fast Arctic sea ice…

    Arctic Ocean is acidifying four times faster than other oceans

    (ORDO NEWS) — Scientists have been shocked at the rate of change in seawater composition as the melting ice caps up CO2 and has “enormous consequences” for Arctic life. The study showed that the Arctic Ocean is acidifying four times faster than the rest of the planet’s oceans. This conclusion was reached by specialists from the Institute of Polar and Marine Research at Jimei University in China and the School…

    Thousands of years ago, the Arctic Ocean was fresh

    (ORDO NEWS) — Analysis of sediments in the Arctic Ocean showed that it was once insipid! True, in those days it was covered with a massive ice sheet, which kept fresh water from circulating. One of the authors of the work noted that their study is truly unique, because before no one could have imagined that the ocean waters could become completely fresh The Arctic Ocean surrounds the North Pole,…

    Unusual water bloom recorded in the seas of Arctic Ocean

    (ORDO NEWS) — An unusual water bloom was recorded in the seas of the Arctic Ocean, washing the shores of Russia. Due to the early melting of ice, a large amount of phytoplankton appeared in them, which protects the planet from global warming, said Roman Vilfand, scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center of Russia. Russia is washed by six seas of the Arctic Ocean: White, Barents, Kara, Laptev, East Siberian…
