Climate Change- Case Study Arctic
1 Area around the North Pole- Ice is melting and permafrost is moving north and shrinking and so is the tree line
2 Environmental Impacts- ice melting means more water in the sea cause change in density and ocean currents loosing natural sinks because of loss of permafrost
3 Ecological Impacts- habitats are being reduced and lost there are few species so could cause devastating effects. As sea ice coverage is reduced temperatures increase
4 Socio-economic impacts- could open new shipping routes in the summer new natural resources may be found increase opportunities for farming and forestry.
