Arctic Climate Change

24th January 2019

Dr Yueng-Lenn Djern, co-lead investigator of the PEANUTS project, gave a live TV interview to the BBC News Channel on Thursday 24 January 2019.

The interview focused on observations of how the Arctic Ocean is affected by climate change, with increasing incursion of warm, salty Atlantic waters into the colder, fresher Barents Sea.

The interview touched on the implications of this “Atlantification” of the Arctic Ocean for the formation of sea ice, regional weather and climate, and the exchange of gases with the atmosphere.
