"Even on the Beaufort side, beyond the shorefast ice, we're seeing a very active fracture zone now. We see from remote sensing that sea ice thickness in the Beaufort and northern Chukchi Sea is exceptionally thin compared to normal. There's (an area) 76 to 80 degrees north where, in the middle of ...

New Year's arrived before ice extent reached 95 percent of the Chukchi Sea basin, more than a month later than the average before the 1990s, according to the NOAA review. "A series of storms in the middle of February caused the loss of more than half of what ice had (formed)," the review states. "The ...
Autumn freeze up occurred late this year, particularly in the Chukchi Sea off Alaska. This occurred in part because of large amounts of ocean heat being transported into the area through the Bering Strait. In addition to the delayed freeze-up, air temperatures were persistently high in the Arctic, helping to ...

At the edge of an imperiled Alaska town, Dennis Davis sent a drone over a patchwork of ice covering the Chukchi Sea. “Some people think it's a toy, but a lot of people know that it's an actual tool,” he said of the $5,000, microwave-sized machine with a camera mounted to a carbon fiber frame.

The village has long had issues with the mine. Ore from Red Dog is transported by eighty-ton haul trucks along a 50-mile road that links the mine to a port on the Chukchi Sea south of Kivalina. There it's stored in buildings, then transferred via barges to awaiting offshore bulk carrier ships. The haul road runs ...
The draft proposes 19 lease sales in Alaska, including three sales in the Chukchi Sea, three sales in the Beaufort Sea, two sales in Cook Inlet, and one sale each in 11 other program areas.

At this time of year, sea ice should still be growing and expanding. But recent satellite observations have shown that two large gaps have somehow opened up in the ice. The first is in the Chukchi Sea, near Russia. The second, pictured below, is just north of Cape Morris Jesup in Greenland. The blue gaps ...
On the island of Shishmaref in Alaska's Chukchi Sea, a community of about 550 native Inupiaq people voted to relocate their village because of rising seas that have devoured any buffer between their homes and the habitually stormy ocean.

As Soto dove more into the research learning about small communities like Shishmaref, a town located in Western Alaska on Sarichef Island in the Chukchi Sea, he realized that people — especially youth — needed to be aware of the changes happening in the Arctic. “That's part of the reason why I wanted ...
Kotzebue sits roughly at the intersection of the Arctic Circle and the coast of the Chukchi Sea, and so does the nearby Red Dog Mine, which appears to be the world's largest producer of zinc.
