The polar regions are changing more rapidly than any other place on Earth. In this talk, we examine evidence to see how scientists are monitoring global climate change and its effect on the arctic environment. Starting from the oldest climate record in the Arctic captured in a sediment core, through evidence frozen into ice cores to real-time observations from cabled observatories, we explore data that capture Earth’s climate history and allow us to monitor today’s conditions. How are observations, models and measurements used together to make predictions about the coming years? How can we adapt to the impacts of change and what are the risks we face?
