NSIDC scientists contributed to a new report from the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Program (AMAP), an international scientific organization. The report, entitled "Snow, Water, Ice and Permafrost in the Arctic", compiled scientific observations of the impact of climate change in the Arctic region. The assessment highlights observed changes in snow cover, sea ice, and permafrost, along with future projections for climate change in the Arctic.
The full report will be available on May 12, 2011. An executive summary of the report, and additional information for journalists, are currently available from the AMAP Web site at http://amap.no/Conferences/Conf2011/press.html.
