arcticseaWITHIN 60 years the Arctic Ocean could be a stagnant, polluted soup. Without drastic cuts in greenhouse-gas emissions, the Transpolar Drift, one of the Arctic’s most powerful currents and a key disperser of pollutants, is likely to disappear because of global warming.

Pettersson from simulations with usage of global version of the Miami Isopycnic Coordinate Ocean Model (MICOM).
