Fig. 1: Periods of large sea ice loss in the Arctic coincident with large midlatitude cooling.

From: Midlatitudes unaffected by sea ice loss

Fig. 1

Time series of winter average (December, January and February) sea ice extent averaged over the Barents–Kara Sea (black curve; left axis) and surface air temperature averaged over Eurasia (blue curve; right axis). Linear trends have been removed to accentuate winter-to-winter fluctuations. The grey shadings and thicker lines illustrate periods within which large Arctic sea ice loss is coincident with large midlatitude cooling.
