Abstract

It is shown that the mean sea-ice limit in the Greenland and Barents Seas during the period April–August is a substantial measure of both the sea-surface temperature near the Faroes and the east coast of Iceland, and the air temperature at Iceland, during the subsequent period September–February.

Furthermore, it is shown that decadal variations of Arctic ice are a measure of decadal trends of ocean phenomena and weather in the region of the northern North Atlantic Ocean.
