A new report takes a closer look at the models the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) used to measure the loss of sea ice for its latest report released earlier this year. The new research was conducted by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration oceanographer James Overland. Overland and a colleague used only the IPCC models that most closely matched satellite records and documented sea ice loss. The results were dramatic.
