Climate models reflect that parts of the Arctic that had once been blanketed in ice round the year are warming so fast that they will be ice-free for several months in about two decades. The changing climate in the Arctic will endanger numerous species in sub-zero temperatures.
Responding to reports from the US NSIDC that summer ice has reached its 12th lowest ever extent, and that the amount of “multi-year ice, is one of the lowest levels in the ice age record, which began in 1984”, the Clean Arctic Alliance called for urgent cuts to black carbon emission from shipping, ahead of the International Maritime Organization meeting MEPC 77 in November.
Fleet Data provides data acquisition, processing, uploading, and interface links between engine and Nautilus Labs’ fleet optimisation solution so that Mitsubishi Ore Transport and Diamond Bulk Carriers reap rewards of big data without hardware expense.
As a meeting of the IMO’s MEPC 76 opens today, IMO member states were called on to take urgent and immediate action to protect the Arctic from the impacts of shipping emissions and pollution.
Clean Arctic Alliance demands greater ambition on heavy fuel oil ban ahead of IMO meeting and calls for Arctic black carbon cuts of 90% and global greenhouse gas emissions by 60%
A new, free tool for oil spill response at sea is now available online for authorities and local response units. The aim of the tool is to minimize the environmental impacts of oil spills in the Arctic and around the world.
With temperatures reaching 38° Celsius north of the Arctic Circle in June, and Arctic sea ice melting faster than most climate models predicted, the Clean Arctic Alliance is calling on world leaders to take urgent action to curb the warming of the Arctic region.
The Arctic’s largest ice shelf has detached a 113 km2 area. The last few years have been incredibly warm in northeast Greenland and this appears to be a progressive disintegration.
The oldest and thickest Arctic sea ice is disappearing twice as fast as ice in the rest of the Arctic Ocean, according to new research.
