"[Brave New Arctic] delves into the recent history of Arctic research, following a trail of scientific breadcrumbs from the late s to the present day to show how our understanding of the region’s response to climate and climate change has evolved over time Serreze succeeds on one important front: humanizing Arctic science. The Arctic is changing. As retreating ice cover makes this region more accessible, nations with Arctic real estate are thinking of developing these subzero landscapes and the resources below. As the Arctic evolves, a vast amount of resources will become more accessible and longer shipping seasons will improve Arctic logistics.

The sun would rise from the eastern horizon, and cut it's way across the empty sky, and sink below the western horizon. This was the only perceptible change in our surroundings. Future Arctic is a vivid tale of natural history populated with colorful characters, charismatic wildlife and remarkable landscapes. In it, Struzik illuminates the spirit and beauty of the Arctic and makes a compelling case for charting a new course to shape its future. Check out an excerpt from the book below.

With this book, photographer Ken Tape sets changes in the landscape in stark relief, pairing decades-old photos of the arctic landscape of Alaska with photos of the same scenes taken in the present. The resulting volume is a stunning reminder of inexorable change; divided into sections on vegetation, permafrost, and glaciers, the images show the startling effects of climate change.
He tells a powerful story, using the metaphor of the 'Arctic Messenger' – an imaginary being warning us all of the folly of ignoring Arctic environmental change.
This book will be of great interest to anyone concerned about the fate of the Arctic, including lifelong learners interested in the Arctic and the natural environment generally Author: David P. Stone. The University of Alaska Press releases its newest book, “The Changing Arctic Landscape” by Ken Tape.
Though it's generally understood that any landscape changes over time, particularly as the number of people it supports increases, these changes occur over such a span of time that they can go more or less unnoticed.
In never-before-seen photos from the world’s finest nature photographers, The Arctic introduces the reader to this region in three sections—the land and sea, the rich biodiversity, and the native peoples—and explores the challenges facing each in its rapidly changing environment.
While celebrated in this volume, these stunning images are a dramatic and timely demonstration of the constant transformation of the Arctic 5/5(5). This accessible and engagingly written book describes how national and international scientific monitoring programmes brought to light our present understanding of Arctic environmental change, and how these research results were successfully used to achieve international legal actions to lessen some of the environmental impacts.
David Stone was intimately involved in many of these. The Changing Arctic Landscape takes place as part of theCarbon Climate is Cultureexhibition + festival, a four-month long cultural engagement—through music, performing arts, talks, and a major exhibition at the ROM— with one of the most pressing issues of our time: climate change.

I guess this makes sense though For starters, and obvious reasons, it’s where the book started so this location brought it full circle. After taking this course you will have an understanding of Arctic landscapes, how they were formed and how they are changing.
You will also learn how scientists from countries around the North are working together to understand how these changes will affect the People of the North and the global Ratings: starsAverage User Rating.
The Arctic is warming at a rate of almost twice the global average. Without urgent action to cut greenhouse gas emissions, the world will continue to feel the effects of a warming Arctic: rising sea levels, changes in climate and precipitation patterns, increasing severe weather events, and loss of fish stocks, birds and marine mammals.
The changing landscape and unpredictability of weather is creating new challenges in the Arctic. researchers have documented historical and current trails created by the Inuit in the Pan Inuit Trails Atlas, finding that the change in sea ice formation and breakup has resulted in changes to the routes of trails created by the Inuit.
