Polar scientists are calling for an urgent intensification of national and international research and observational capabilities in view of rapid Arctic and Antarctic change. The latest call to action is from the SCAR/CliC Expert Group on Antarctic Sea-Ice Processes & Climate (ASPeCt) and the CliC Arctic Sea Ice Working Group (ASIWG) in response to continuing observations of record low sea-ice extents, with the same messages heard strongly at the Antarctic Treaty Consultative Meeting that concluded in Helsinki last week.
