As Greenland Warms, Nature’s Seasonal Clock Is Thrown Off-Kilter…

For millennia, ecosystems in Greenland and throughout the Arctic have been regulated by seasonal changes that govern the greening of vegetation and the migration and reproduction of animals. But a rapidly warming climate and disappearing sea ice are upending that finely tuned balance… This full article is at Yale Environment 360, read it here: https://e360.yale.edu/features/as-greenland-warms-natures-seasonal-clock-is-thrown-off-kilter

Alien Waters: Neighboring Seas Are Flowing into a Warming Arctic Ocean…

The “Atlantification” and “Pacification” of the Arctic has begun. As warmer waters stream into an increasingly ice-free Arctic Ocean, new species — from phytoplankton to whales — have the potential to upend this sensitive polar environment… Read the article here at Yale Environment 360: https://e360.yale.edu/features/alien-waters-neighboring-seas-are-flowing-into-a-warming-arctic-ocean
