The effect on the
Arctic on global and local warming are that most of the sea ice that covers areas of the Arctic Ocean will have less sea ice
coverage especially during the summer. Where this happens there will be an increase in the upper sea surface and a decrease
in the normal alebedo of the region. For these changes will have a big hit on habitats, especially for the creatures that
depend on ice.
Another major effect that the global and local warming has on the Arctic Ocean is that the average
air temperatures are rising in the area where the ocean is located. This is very bad because it is making everything warmer,
which makes things like permafrost melt.
The permafrost melting from the global warming is becoming a big problem
because the permafrost area is where the polar bears live. With the permafrost decreasing the polar bears are losing there
habitat. Therefore in the future polar bears could/may become extinct.
Global and local climates are rising way more then what they should be
because of human activities like greenhouse gases.
Long Range Plans
There are two major goals scientists want to happen in the next three
to five years. One is to examine the areas of the Arctic Ocean to get an up to date model.
The other goal is to identify problems and try to fix them.
