2022 Arctic Report Card: Human-Caused Climate Change Fuels Warmer, Wetter, Stormier Arctic

Dec. 19, 2022

A typhoon, smoke from wildfires and increasing rain are not what most imagine when thinking of the Arctic.

CIMES Researcher Zack Labe, an AOS postdoc, contributed to the chapter on sea surface temperature.
