Given these caveats and stated objectives, this treatise is a great success This treatise is a great success and will undoubtedly stand as a benchmark in polar oceanography. Every serious polar scientist should encourage her/his library to purchase the two-volume set or, better yet, splurge for this worthwhile addition to a personal book Format: Hardcover.

The course aims to describe circulation and dynamics of the polar oceans, including the Norwegian- and Greenland Sea. The topics are discussed with respect to climatic variations and compared for the Arctic and Antarctic regions.

Content. The Polar Science Center is a group of dedicated investigators conducting interdisciplinary research on the oceanography, climatology, meteorology, biology and ecology of the ice-covered regions on Earth and elsewhere in the solar system. The polar regions have experienced some remarkable environmental changes in recent decades, such as the Antarctic ozone hole, the loss of large amounts of sea ice from the Arctic Ocean and major warming on the Antarctic Peninsula.

The polar regions are also predicted to warm more than any other region on Earth over the next century if greenhouse gas concentrations continue to rise.5/5(1). Polar Biology publishes Original Papers, Reviews, and Short Notes and is the focal point for biologists working in polar regions.

It is also of interest to scientists working in biology in general, ecology and physiology, as well as in oceanography and climatology related to polar life.

In comparison to midlatitudes, the Arctic Ocean internal wave field is weak; the few available microstructure observations suggest very small diffusivities, ∼10 −5 m 2 s −1 and less in the Arctic Ocean interior (e.g., Rainville and Winsor ; Fer ).

Introduction. Sea surface temperature (SST) has increased in most Arctic seas over the last century, with warming intensifying since (Steele et al., ).Arctic sea ice extent (Stroeve et al., ) and volume (Laxon et al., ) have declined during all seasons, and ice breakup has occurred progressively earlier (Stroeve et al., ).

Density Density refers to the amount of mass per unit volume, such as grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm 3).The density of fresh water is 1 g/cm 3 at 4 o C (see section ), but the addition of salts and other dissolved substances increases surface seawater density to between and g/cm density of seawater can be increased by reducing its temperature, increasing its salinity.

The heat required to evaporate liquid water into water vapor is the latent heat of vaporization which has a value of cal/g (Figure ). Figure Latent heat required for phase changes in water. Latent heat of fusion is the heat required to melt ice (80 cal/g), and latent heat of vaporization is the heat required to turn liquid water.

Types of Ice The ice that is seen floating on the ocean’s surface comes from one of two sources.

Glacial ice is formed from the accumulation and compression of snow into glaciers, that then break apart and release ice to the ocean. Because glaciers can be several kilometers thick the icebergs that break off of them can be very large; so the tall icebergs at sea always come from glacial.

Scientists in the Polar Biological Oceanography Section are building a new understanding of how polar ecosystems will respond to climate change.

Our research foci include. the biogeochemistry and ecology of sea ice, links to the pelagic system and environmental factors controlling these interactions. This book commemorates the 70th birthday of Eugene Morozov, the noted Russian observational oceanographer. It contains many contributions reflecting his fields of interest, including but not limited to tidal internal waves, ocean circulation, deep ocean currents, and Arctic oceanography.
