To assess how the loss of Arctic sea ice and northern high latitude snow cover will invoke changes in Arctic's hydrologic cycle
J. Stroeve, J. Cassano
This effort is testing the hypothesis that the loss of Arctic sea ice and northern high latitude snow cover will invoke changes in the seasonality, spatial distribution and magnitudes of precipitation (P) and net precipitation (P-E) over the Arctic, which along with attendant changes in temperature, have ramifications for the freshwater budget of the Arctic Ocean and the mass balance of the Greenland ice sheet.
