Unexpectedly cold and snowy winter, it was in 2009-2010, will soon become a common thing for people in Europe, East Asia and Eastern North America, according to Dr. James Overland Pacific Marine Laboratory of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Research, USA.
"Cold and snowy winters will be the rule rather than the exception … Extremely cold and snowy winter Of 2009-2010 in Europe, eastern Asia and eastern North America is connected to unique physical processes in the Arctic, "- said Overland, as quoted on the website of the conference dedicated to the results of the International Polar Year Oslo, the campaign "RIA Novosti".
As noted on the site, poteplevshy Arctic Climate affects the atmospheric pressure at the North Pole and the changes "routes" of winds on the planet. Furthermore, the continued reduction in the area of floating Arctic ice will cause significant changes in the world climate system. These factors lead to a cold and snowy winters.
According to Overland, the scientists first did not fully realize that the greenhouse gases in combination with the natural temperature fluctuations, decreased reflectivity of the ocean because of the reduction in area of ice, changes in wind direction destroy the stability of the Arctic climate system. The total area of the ice is declining even faster than predicted.
According to the site, the warming in the Arctic is two times faster than the rest of the world. This phenomenon is known as Arctic "strengthening".
"Change (in the Arctic) are irreversible" – says Overland.
Another phrase in the treasury of delirium – Arctic amplification. Arctic Oscillation is not satisfied.
