IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

ACCELERATING ARCTIC SUMMER Sea ice processes DECLINE DRIVEN BY THE DIPOLE ANOMALY
Author : Jia Wang*, Xuezhi. Bai , John Bratton , Bingyi Wu , and Charles H. Greene
Since the beginning of the satellite era (1979), record lows and highs of Arctic summer Sea ice processes extent are found to be caused not only by dynamically-forced meridional wind advection, but also by the intensified ice/ocean albedo feedback, both of which are triggered by the Arctic atmospheric Dipole Anomaly (DA) pattern. This local, secondary mode of anomalous sea-level pressure (SLP) in the Arctic produces a strong anomalous meridional wind, which was responsible for driving more Sea ice processes out of the Arctic Ocean from the western to the eastern Arctic into the northern Atlantic during the summers of 1995, 1999, 2002, 2005, and 2007-2012 during its positive phase. In September of 2012, a new record
