The Arctic can be viewed as an integrated system, intimately linked by its atmosphere, ocean and land. This comprehensive, up-to-date assessment begins with an outline of early Arctic exploration and the growth of modern research. Using an integrated systems approach, subsequent chapters examine the atmospheric heat budget and circulation, the surface energy budget, the hydrologic cycle and interactions between the ocean, atmosphere and sea ice cover. Reviews of recent directions in numerical modeling and the characteristics of past Arctic climates cover recent climate variability as well as projected future trends.

The Arctic can be viewed as an integrated system, characterized by intimate couplings between its atmosphere, ocean and land, linked in turn to the larger global system. This comprehensive, up-to-date assessment begins by outlining early Arctic exploration and the growth of modern research. Reviews of recent field studies and past Arctic climates set the stage for detailed discussion of recent climate variability and trends, and projected future states. The Arctic Climate System provides an accessible overview of the subject for researchers and advanced students in a wide range of disciplines.About the Author:
Mark C. Serreze received a PhD in Geography from the University of Colorado, Boulder (1989) for his work on understanding Arctic sea ice variability. He has subsequently been a research scientist at the University of Colorado, at the National Snow and Ice Data Center within the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences and is an Associate Research Professor in Geography. His Arctic research interests are wide-ranging, and include atmosphere-sea-ice interactions, synoptic climatology, hydro-climatology, boundary layer problems, numerical weather prediction and climate change. Dr. Serreze has conducted field work in the Canadian Arctic on sea ice and ice caps, and on the Alaskan tundra. Service includes contributions to the National Science Foundation, the World Climate Research Programme, the United States Navy and the Arctic Research Consortium of the United States.
