Book Description

The Arctic, the polar region, the northernmost part of Earth, is the hotspot for climate change assessments and the sensitive barometer of global climate variability. This book includes the scientific observations on the Arctic region climate and the results achieved by scientists at the Indian Arctic station Himadri over the last decade. Designed and structured to incorporate multi-dimensional climate change research output, the book is a significant contribution to understand among other issues, the role of persistent organic pollutants and mercury, as well as the increase of carbon monoxide during ozone reduction in the Arctic. It is an important work for researchers, students, and all interested professionals.
