The Arctic melt - 09/09/2016

Cyclonic Winds in the Arctic

Created by Sam Carana with cci-reanalyzer.org forecasts from September 8-16, 2016, for Arctic-news.blogspot.com




Arctic sea ice has become fractured into pieces. The pieces are getting pushed out of the Arctic Ocean, through Fram Strait into the Atlantic Ocean.



This process could speed up significantly due to strong anticlockwise-moving cyclonic winds that are forecast to move north through Fram Strait over the coming weeks.

This image shows the northern tip of Greenland, where some of the thickest sea ice is present, or rather what's left of it. This thicker sea ice has become fractured into pieces. The pieces are getting pushed out of the Arctic Ocean, through Fram Strait into the Atlantic Ocean.
