Increasing summer ice melt in the Arctic Ocean could shift global weather patterns and make polar waters more navigable. But scientists say forecasting Arctic ice and weather remains a massive challenge. The prospect of more ice-free water during Arctic Ocean summers has triggered efforts to improve ice and weather forecasts at the top of the world

The Polar Science Center is inviting applications for research scientists with principal investigator responsibilities.  We seek candidates who have completed their post doctoral research with a record that demonstrates high potential to develop their own well-funded program.  Initial research support over a nominal 2-year period will come from start-up funds and existing project funds.

A new modeling study conducted by Dr. Jinlun Zhang to be published in the Journal of Climate shows that stronger polar winds lead to an increase in Antarctic sea ice, even in a warming climate.
