The Pacific Arctic Region : Ecosystem Status and Trends in a Rapidly Changing Environment Hardback
Edited by Jacqueline M. Grebmeier, Wieslaw Maslowski
The Pacific Arctic region is experiencing rapid sea ice retreat, seawater warming, ocean acidification and biological response.
Physical and biogeochemical modeling indicates the potential for step-function changes to the overall marine ecosystem.
This synthesis book was coordinated within the Pacific Arctic Group, a network of international partners working in the Pacific Arctic.
Chapter topics range from atmospheric and physical sciences to chemical processing and biological response to changing environmental conditions.
Physical and biogeochemical modeling results highlight the need for data collection and interdisciplinary modeling activities to track and forecast the changing ecosystem of the Pacific Arctic with climate change.
