Abstract: Since reliable ice extent estimates from satellite data became available in 1979 the Arctic sea ice cover has followed a declining long term trend. Over the last decade the decline has accelerated with record low sea ice extents recorded in 2002, 2005, 2007 and 2012. In order to explain the mechanisms behind the observed ice cover decline it is critical to gain a better understanding of the climate system as a whole which in turn requires detailed studies of the involved processes. The main obje... more
