Abstract:

The paper presents the results of a new report from the Arctic Council, “Snow, Water, Ice and Permafrost in the Arctic,” devoted to the evaluation of the current situation in the Arctic cryosphere. Climate change has become a major problem in the Arctic over the past decade. Climate change impacts including buildings, roads and pipelines damage, reduction of the possibility for hunting, fishing and herding, and the negative impact on the health of the population of northern territories require the development of the adaptation strategies.
