Arctic Climate Emergency



Arctic methane workshop, Chiswick, 15-16 October



The  Arctic  Climate Impact Assessment is an International project of the Arctic Council and the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), to evaluate and synthesize knowledge on climate variability, climate change, and increased ultraviolet radiation and their consequences. The results of the assessment were released at the ACIA International Scientific Symposium held in Reykjavik, Iceland in November 2004.

It is also available at the Encyclopedia of Earth in a convenient format  published 2010

The Snow, Water, Ice, Permafrost in the Arctic (SWIPA) assessment was published in 2011 by the  Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP) .

 The  Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme (AMAP)  website has all the Arctic climate assessments and reports including
