“Outside the window, there slides past that unimaginable and deserted vastness where night is coming on, the sun declining in ghastly blood-streaked splendour like a public execution across, it would seem, half a continent, where live only bears and shooting stars and the wolves who lap congealing ice from water that holds within it the entire sky. Stern, who studies climate and Arctic sea ice, researched Cook's journey for an essay the climate scientist contributed to the book "Arctic Ambitions: Captain Cook and the Northwest Passage.
Mostly this is a book about the rigors of fieldwork, about cohabitating in close quarters, being stranded for weeks by storms, floods and melting ice, rejiggering strategies, “aching. 2 days ago Toward the end of the month, a strong low pressure system moved into the ice in the Beaufort Sea region. Antarctic sea ice extent remains below average levels as it climbs towards its seasonal maximum, which is typically reached in early October. Overview of conditions. Figure 1. Arctic sea ice extent for July was million square.
The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern, now available in paperback from Penguin/Randomhouse, takes readers on a wondrous journey into the magic of stern has created an amazing world. In an extract from her new book Rising, Elizabeth Rush explains the threat from sea-level rise, which, for millions of Americans, is about to get very real, very quickly.

[JaapJan Zeeberg; Pieter Floore; Rijksmuseum (Netherlands)] -- Synthesizes several expeditions by archeologists connected with Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum in the Novaya Zemlya archipelago between and and their historical parallels of four centuries.
Sea ice begins as thin sheets of smooth nilas in calm water (top) or disks of pancake ice in choppy water (2 nd image). Individual pieces pile up to form rafts and eventually solidify (3 rd image).
Over time, large sheets of ice collide, forming thick pressure ridges along the margins (4 th image). (Nilas, pancake, and ice raft photographs courtesy Don Perovich, Cold Regions Research and Author: Michon Scott. But we need the books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide.
A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us. That is my belief. Tagged: Kafka on reading, literature, reading. The Arctic lostsquare miles of sea ice in the month of March alone—an area roughly the size of Alaska, according to National Snow and Ice Data Center records.
The major effects of the ice age are erosion and deposition of material over large parts of the continents, modification of river systems, creation of millions of lakes, changes in sea level. In The Ice at the End of the World, Jon Gertner explains how Greenland has evolved from one of earth’s last frontiers to its largest scientific laboratory.

The US and British navies sailed into the Barents Sea to conduct maritime security operations in the Arctic Ocean, US Naval Forces Europe-Africa said in a release Monday.
As ice melted at the end of the last glacial period of the current ice age, sea levels rose and the land began to tilt in an isostatic adjustment as the huge weight of ice lessened. Doggerland eventually became submerged, cutting off what was previously the British peninsula.
In real time, it took 30 minutes for an iceberg four miles long to break off and float away into the sea.
It’s hard to get a sense of scale from the video, but the researchers pointed out in a. Two children make an amazing find in a California tar pit. The Chronicles series of science-based adventure books introduces high-interest, scientific information within the context of an engaging story.
Students are drawn into action-packed, fictional tales by National Geographic writers and photographers. Lost continents. In the book Lost Continents by L. Sprague de Camp, he describes many modern writers who have speculated about ancient civilizations that existed on continents now deluged under the sea.
According to de Camp, there is no real scientific evidence for any lost continents whatsoever. The most famous lost continent is is, like Hyperborea and Thule, is ultimately.
The ice in one of the world’s highest concentrations of non-polar glaciers could see significant melting before the end of the century, potentially affecting sea levels around the globe, according to a new computer model from the NASA Sea Level Science Team.
The consequent influx of water, previously sequestered as ice, into the world’s oceans will dramatically raise sea levels, with potentially catastrophic consequences for humanity. I haven’t seen the film, but I’ve just read the book and found two scenes of interest.
In one, the mother-in-law Powtee is put out on the solid sea ice to die, only to be rescued soon after. In the other, the wife Asiak walks across the sea ice to drown herself in the open water.
Global warming - Global warming - Ice melt and sea level rise: A warming climate holds important implications for other aspects of the global environment.
Because of the slow process of heat diffusion in water, the world’s oceans are likely to continue to warm for several centuries in response to increases in greenhouse concentrations that have taken place so far.
This is the story of a ship attempting to go through ice and freezing temperatures to reach the north pole. I won't spoil by giving the results. The book is a bit long for the story line. I felt like I was frozen in ice, much as the ship was at times in the book.
A cyclical pattern emerges in which the snow and ice traps the Earth’s moisture, fueling the growth of these ice sheets as the sea levels simultaneously drop. An ice. 11 hours ago Its 10th-gen Ice Lake CPUs have a lower clock speed between GHz and GHz base clock, but they turbo up to GHz on one core and Ghz across all of them simultaneously.
Some fiction books read like not that exciting non-fiction, and some non-fiction books turn out to be really unputdownable. For me, this was the case with In the Kingdom of Ice. The story of the Jeannette and her crew who committed themselves to sail to the North Pole, terra incognita in the second half of the 19th century, is compelling.This third edition of Sea Ice gives insight into the very latest understanding of the how sea ice is formed, how we measure (and model) its extent, the biology that lives within and associated with sea ice and the effect of climate change on its distribution.
