Unprecedented low twentieth century winter sea ice extent in the Western Nordic Seas since A.D. 1200

Abstract:

We reconstructed decadal to centennial variability of maximum sea ice extent in the Western Nordic Seas for A. D. 1200-1997 using a combination of a regional tree-ring chronology from the timberline area in Fennoscandia and δ18O from the Lomonosovfonna ice core in Svalbard. The reconstruction successfully explained 59% of the variance in sea ice extent based on the calibration period 1864-1997. The significance of the reconstruction statistics (reduction of error, coefficient of efficiency) i...
