About this book

The Arctic is the hotspot for climate change assessments and the sensitive barometer of global climate variability. This book includes the scientific observations in the Arctic region’s climate and the results obtained by scientists at the Indian Arctic station Himadri over the past decade. Designed and structured to incorporate multi-dimensional climate change research output, it is a significant contribution toward understanding, among other issues, the role of persistent organic pollutants and mercury, as well as the increase of carbon monoxide during ozone reduction in the Arctic.

Features include:
- Highlights the achievements of climate change research in the Arctic region
- Includes case studies of scientists in the Arctic and their significant achievements through the Indian research base Himadri
- Provides a thorough review of palaeoclimate change studies, the impact of climate change on biotic components and the impact of climate change on abiotic components
- Provides specific details on the study of ozone depletion phenomenon over the Arctic region
- Covers a wide range of research contributions
- Details sea ice variability in the context of global warming over the Arctic region
- Connects seismogenesis with the climate change in the Arctic region

This book will be an important read for researchers, students and all interested professionals.

Dr Neloy Khare is presently an Adviser and Scientist G to the Government of India at MoES and has almost 30 years of experience in the field of paleoclimate research using palaeobiology and palaeontology. He completed his PhD in tropical marine region and Doctor of Science on southern high latitude marine regions towards environmental and climatic implications and has made significant contributions in the field of palaeoclimatology of southern high latitude regions of the Antarctic and the Southern Ocean using micropalaeontology as a tool. Dr Khare is an Honorary Professor and Adjunct Professor at several Indian Universities. He has published 121 research articles in national and international scientific journals; 3 special issues as Guest Editor and Managing Editor for the Special Issue of Polar Science (Elsevier). He has authored and edited many books, articles and technical reports. The government of India and many professional bodies have bestowed him with many prestigious awards for his scientific contributions to climate change, oceanography, polar science and southern oceanography. In 2013 he received the most prestigious award Rajiv Gandhi National Award given by the Honorable President of India. Dr Khare has delivered many invited lectures, radio talks and published popular science articles. Dr Khare has sailed in the Arctic Ocean as a part of “Science PUB” in 2008 during the International Polar Year campaign for scientific exploration in the Arctic Ocean and became the first Indian to sail in the Arctic Ocean.
