Climate of Svalbard

Svalbard archipelago, a high Arctic region is undergoing rapid climate change. At the Polish Polar Station Hornsund over the last 40 years temperatures have increased by 4.5 degrees Celsius - six times above average global warming. The increasing air temperatures go hand-in-hand with the decline of the Arctic sea-ice extent.
