Abstract

After a brief outline of the known history of the Arctic ice and of its interactions with the general wind circulation, an account is given of the transport and redistribution of heat over the Earth which largely determines the Arctic climate and the patterns of climate prevailing at any given time over the rest of the globe. The remaining sections are concerned with the Arctic ice and other variables as an indicator of the state of the current global climatic regime. Recent climatic fluctuations (and some historic ones) are briefly reviewed in the light of these considerations.
