Arctic Report Card 2011 Update - NOAA

This report by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration finds that  Persistent warming has caused dramatic changes in the Arctic Ocean and the ecosystem it supports.

Ocean changes include reduced sea ice and freshening of the upper ocean, and impacts such as increased biological productivity at the base of the food chain and loss of habit for walrus and polar bears.
