What is really happening in the Arctic regions of the world - some of the most mysterious, beautiful, and essential places on the planet? Peter Wadhams is Professor of Ocean Physics at Cambridge University and the world's leading expert on sea ice, having made forty-five journeys to polar regions during his professional life. This book examines the natural properties of sea ice, explaining how it is able to act as an air and water cooling system for our oceans. It gives a brief history of ice on our planet and explains what is happening to it now. Using the latest research from the Arctic Ocean, he shows that change is occurring much faster than previously predicted. The implications for our world are immense.
