The Arctic Climate System

The Arctic Climate System

The Arctic can be viewed as an integrated system, intimately linked by its atmosphere, ocean and land. This comprehensive, up-to-date assessment begins with an outline of early Arctic exploration and the growth of modern research. Using an integrated systems approach, subsequent chapters examine the atmospheric heat budget and circulation, the surface energy budget, the hydrologic cycle and interactions between the ocean, atmosphere and sea ice cover. Reviews of recent directions in numerical modeling and the characteristics of past Arctic climates cover recent climate variability as well as projected future trends.


“Provides an extensive overview of the Arctic region and how it interacts with the global climate.”

"A wealth of valuable information about the recent climate of the Artic is presented...This is one of the best books on the Arctic climate system and should be required reading for all scientists and students engaged in the study of the Arctic environment."

'The authors demonstrate their expert knowledge and understanding of the topic of climate and provide a comprehensive coverage of this topic, which is likely to appeal to and be useful to many readers.' Journal of Glaciology

'Researchers and students will delight in The Arctic Climate System, and I can honestly report that if I could have only one text or resource on Arctic climatology, this would be it. Perhaps the best recommendation I can give is to report that I have already adopted this text for the graduate course that I teach in Arctic Climate Dynamics. I expect it will maintain this place for many years and future editions.' Arctic: Journal of the Arctic Institute of North America
