declining arctic sea ice influences european weather -- but isn't a cause of colder winters

the dramatic loss of arctic sea ice through climate change is unlikely to lead to more severe winter weather across northern europe, new research has shown.a pioneering new study has explored how arctic sea-ice loss influences the north atlantic oscillation (nao) weather phenomenon, which affects winter weather conditions in northern europe, in places such as the uk, scandinavia and the baltic states.previous studies have suggested that arctic sea-ice loss causes the nao to spend longer in its 'negative phase' - generating more easterly winds that bring colder air from scandinavia and siberia to the uk. this might be expected to cause more frequent cold winters, such as the deep freeze exp...
