    The U.S. National Ice Center (NIC) is an inter-agency sea ice analysis and forecasting center comprised of the Department of Commerce/NOAA, the Department of Defense/U.S. Navy, and the Department of Homeland Security/U.S. Coast Guard components. Since , NIC has produced Arctic and Antarctic sea ice charts. This data set is comprised of Arctic sea ice concentration climatology derived from.   But with Arctic exploration snowballing and policy slow-as-usual to catch up, a resource like the Sea Ice Atlas could prove vital in helping Arctic vessels stay out of trouble.

    Most of high arctic Canada and the Canadian Archipelago is part of Nunavut. Baffin Island has almost everything that the Arctic has to offer, plentiful wildlife, enormous mountains, fjords, glaciers, sea-ice, modern Inuit culture and an extensive history of occupation by native peoples and visits by explorers. Additionally, the atlas includes a detailed glossary on types of sea ice and information on original data sources and how the data were compiled. Times Scales of Variability. One of the objectives of the project is to offer researchers a reliable tool to find time scales .

The inset illustrates the time series of total sea ice area (km 2) and unique ship count by vessel name Canadian Arctic sea ice domain from to The vertical dashed line indicates the significant step change in shipping activity identified by Pizzolato et al. [].Ship count data are from the Vessel Traffic Reporting Cited by: Over the past 20 years the study of the frozen Arctic and Southern Oceans and sub-arctic seas has progressed at a remarkable pace. This third edition of Sea Ice gives insight into the very latest understanding of the how sea ice is formed, how we measure (and model) its extent, the biology that lives within and associated with sea ice and the effect of climate change on its distribution.
