The Arctic Ocean is found at the top of the world at the
North Pole. The North Pole is the spot farthest to the north
on planet earth.
Not many scientists have visited the Arctic. It has not been
explored as much as other places on earth, so we don't understand
a lot about the Arctic. Some scientists believe that the weather
in the Arctic affects the world's weather, but until it is
studied we will not be able to say how.
New studies say that the atmosphere, ocean, and land in the
Arctic is changing. The changes that are happening are natural
changes. Humans did help cause the changes a little , and
humans are affected by the changes too. Greenhouse gasses
from automobiles, ships, and products have helped make the
climate change in the Arctic. Something called Arctic Oscillation
makes the climate change. When warm and cold air begin to
rotate like a fan it is called oscillation.
