Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Incidents like U-boots surfacing and meeting at the North Pole, ships using the East-North passage and the break-off of the Larsen Ice Shelf or other ice shelves alerted the public about changes in sea-ice. Sea-ice is one of the hardest systems to model as it is affected by the ocean and atmosphere. Furthermore, the sea-ice extend changes strongly in response to the atmosphere and ocean currents. Recent studies also show links between sea-ice and vegetation. The goal of this special issue is to discuss newest findings of the role of sea-ice in the climate systems, its feedback to other parts of the climate system, sea-ice processes as well as the climatology related to temporal and spatial changes in sea-ice extend.

Prof. Dr. Dr. Nicole Mölders
