Climate Change: Arctic
a guide addressing some of the serious issues threatening the planet
What people don't understand about the Arctic is that this isn't just about those other people, those Eskimos that have nothing to do with us. The Arctic drives the climate of the whole globe. -- Gretel Ehrlich
Here we show how variability and change in sea ice cover in the Barents Sea, the largest shelf sea of the Arctic, affect the population dynamics of a keystone species of the ice-associated food web, the polar cod (Boreogadus saida).
This portal contains scientific and management information including real-time sensor feeds, operational oceanographic and atmospheric models, satellite observations, and GIS datasets that describe the biological, chemical, and physical characteristics of Alaska and its surrounding waters.
These include weather stations, stream gauges, webcam images, moorings, etc. Measurements and predictions include air temperature, air pressure, conductivity, water currents, water level, ground temperature, precipitation, humidity, salinity, snow depth, snow water equivalent, stream flow, stream gauge height, stream temperature, tides, waves, wind, and acidity (pH).Metadata url: http://www.aoos.org/aoos-data-resources/
This archived "real-time" data set can be used as a quick way to find and download data from the recent past that is not available on the source website, which often only displays data from the past week. However, it does not represent all of the available historical data that may be available by contacting the source directly (e.g., NOAA, USGS).
The ShoreZone mapping system has been in use since the early 1980s and has been applied to more than 40,000 km of shoreline in Washington and British Columbia (Berry et al 2004; Howes 2001). Through partnerships with other agencies and organizations, portions of southeastern and centr...
The calculated means encompass all longitudes from 60°N to 90°N latitudes and use all available data regardless of year of measurement. Data presented here are monthly statistical means on a 1/4° grid that extend from the surface to 1500 meters in depth. However, NODC hosts additional data including seasonal and full-year averages (which extend to 4000 meters in depth), 1 degree grids, and supporting statistical data such as the number of observations in each bin, standard deviations, location of grid points, etc.
