Arctic Warming and Increased Weather Extremes: The National Research Council Speaks
Arctic warming is happening at twice the average level of global warming in a process called arctic amplification, where more warming occurs as ice is lost because less of the sun’s energy is reflected back into space
Ocean Acidification - Effects of melting glaciers are part of PWS research
Ocean scientists who have been studying Prince William Sound for the past five years are hoping to determine by fall the maximum distribution of glacial melt water and its impact on the saturation state of carbonate minerals.

Researchers examine glaciers' effects on ocean acidification in Prince William Sound
Three unmanned vessels called “gliders” and a tour boat equipped with special scientific equipment will be cruising Prince William Sound this summer gathering data about acidification and the effects of glacial melt on it.
Climate models show carbon emission mitigation could slow Arctic temperature increases
PMEL-led research using climate model predictions concludes the Arctic climate will continue to show major changes over the next decades.
