Just published: Long-term study of winter sea ice extend in Bering Sea

A recently published study on sea ice extend in the Bering Sea suggests that winter sea ice, previously thought to be relatively stable, may be in decline as well. Using oxygen isotope signatures in peat moss from St. Matthew Island the researchers created a long-term climate record spanning over 5000 years.

The paper was co-authored by Alaska Stable Isotope Facility (ASIF) director Matthew Wooller and published in Sciences Advances: High sensitivity of Bering Sea winter sea ice to winter insolation and carbon dioxide over the last 5500 years

This study was also featured in an article by Reuters UK.
