New video series from NOAA Ocean Today explores the role of sea ice in the ocean



The 2012 Arctic summer sea ice extent is the lowest since taking measurement. In a new three-part video series

Part I: What is sea ice and why is it shrinking?

Part II: How do we measure ice?

Part III: Shrinking ice: Impacts


CPO's John Calder, Kathy Crane, Rebecca Lindsey, and Diane Stanitski contributed to the production of these videos. They are available for download on the Ocean Today website

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
