In addition to ice extent and thickness, ice age is an important parameter for the characterisation and formation of sea ice! After all, as sea ice ages, physical characteristics like thickness, salin
But this expedition won’t proceed entirely as planned, either – like so many things in the on-going coronavirus pandemic. In mid-December, the research ship Polarstern, with the new overwintering team
As our colleagues at the German overwintering station Neumayer III can attest, that doesn’t necessarily mean the weather will get warmer, but at least towards the end of the month they can look forwar
In the course of the past few decades, the sea-ice extent in the Antarctic has been characterised by significant variability – both spatially and chronologically. For example, for the observational pe
If we review the sea-ice extent in the Antarctic over the past few weeks, we can see an exciting trend – and not just in our potential interpretations, but also when we compare the current situation t
The record-breaking journey began when Stefanie Arndt and Leonard Rossmann from the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) in Bremerhaven placed the buoy on the
The sea-ice extent in the Arctic is broadly considered to be an important indicator for the on-going climate change. This year, the month of October, in which the freezing season begins and new ice is
The air temperature, humidity, pressure and wind fields determine the circulation, and with it, the inflow of warm air masses from the temperate latitudes. In addition, the ocean temperature is the mo
