Changes caused by global warming can be seen very clearly in the Arctic Ocean. For that reason, these areas of the world are important for climate research.
The sea ice, ocean currents and temperature changes affect methane releases from the ocean to the atmosphere.
Visit the following sites to view data which demonstrate these changes:
- Atmospheric gas composition
- Sea ice
- Air and ocean temperatures
- Temperature and salinity in the Norwegian fjords
- Ocean observatories from Statoil and Venus
- The Zeppelin Observatory
