    Arctic tundra are a surface manifestation of the ice wedges underneath. Such wedge shaped vertical sheets vary in width from 1/4 inch to 10 feet wide at the top and 4 to 30 feet deep when seen in vertical section. (See figure 2) The general theory for the origin of .

Though sea-ice loss has received most of the research and media attention, snow cover in spring and summer has decreased at an Arctic amplification occurs in all seasons, but is strongest in autumn and winter.

    The year was an astounding year for Arctic change. The summer sea ice volume smashed previous records, losing approximately 75 percent of its value since and half of its areal coverage. Multiple records were also broken when 97 percent of Greenland's surface experienced melt conditions in , the largest melt extent in the satellite.

    The lower-tropospheric cold bias in ERA was first documented by Bromwich et al. ().Its elimination in is mentioned by Bromwich and Wang () and is discussed in more detail by Bromwich et al. ().The problem is specifically mentioned in the ERA documentation (Uppala et al. ).However, despite this “known” shortcoming, ERA has been recently used to assess Arctic.
