A new study shows how shifting patterns of humidity may bring about changes in the Arctic atmosphere. The study is from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
As temperatures rise and sea ice melts, scientists suspect that system feedback cycles may further speed up the warming process.
The new study compiled data from the 1950s through the present to examine the subtle changes in the Arctic atmosphere over time.
The team then incorporated the data into six new weather models.
The study appeared in the October issue of EARTH Magazine.
