CURRENT AFFAIRS: INTERNATIONAL

Arctic sea ice hits second-lowest level on record

  • This year, Arctic sea ice shrank to its second-lowest extent in more than 40 years of satellite measurements. On 15 September, ice covered just 74 million square kilometres of Arctic waters at its annual summer minimum. In only one other year — 2012 — has the annual minimum Arctic sea-ice cover dropped below 4 million square kilometres (see ‘Thin ice’).
  • As global temperatures rise, the minimum Arctic sea-ice extent has shrunk by an average of 13.4% per decade since 1979. The ice that remains is often thinner and more fragile than before, making it more vulnerable to melting the following year.
  • This year’s near-record low — reported by the US National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) in Boulder, Colorado on 21 September — got its start last winter, when winds blowing offshore along Russia’s northern coast allowed only thin sea ice to form there; much of this ice melted away when spring came.
  • And from May to August, Siberian heatwaves caused strong melting in the Kara and Laptev seas. The ambitious MOSAiC research expedition, which is examining the Arctic climate from the German icebreaker Polarstern, reached the North Pole on 19 August, in lighter-than-usual ice conditions.
  • The final blow came near the end of the melting season, in early September, when air temperatures over north-central Siberia soared as much as 6 ºC above normal. Some of this warm air leaked north, leading to further ice loss. For six days starting on 31 August, nearly 80,000 square kilometres of sea ice melted each day, a record loss rate for this period.
  • Shrinking sea ice marks part of an overall transition to a new Arctic climate, researchers reported this month1. Warmer air temperatures are already causing a greater proportion of Arctic precipitation to fall as rain rather than snow — meaning a warmer and slushier environment than Arctic ecosystems are used to.

India, Nepal launch website on post-earthquake reconstruction

  • Indian Ambassador to Nepal Vinay M Kwatra and Sushil Gyewali, CEO of Nepal’s National Reconstruction Authority, launched a dedicated website for post-earthquake reconstruction of education sector projects in Nepal.
  • “In a virtual launch ceremony, Ambassador Kwatra and Sushil Gyewali, CEO NRA jointly unveiled a dedicated website on GOI assisted post-earthquake reconstruction projects in the education sector in Nepal,” Indian Embassy stated.
  • The Embassy further stated both countries — India and Nepal — are partners in development.
  • The devastating earthquake of 2015 that shook the Himalayan nation of Nepal had claimed nearly 10,000 lives, injuring thousands and displaced over half-a-million people. Gorkha, Sindhupalchowk and Dolakha were the epicentres of the earthquake. Hundreds of families were forced to sleep under the open sky or in the temporary settlement.
  • Post the earthquake, the Indian Government had committed USD 1 billion for the reconstruction of Nepal in form of grant and Line of Credit. Around USD 150 million was allocated for reconstruction in the housing sector, USD 100 million as grant and USD 50 million to be drawn from Line of Credit.
