Special Issue on Ocean Warming

On the Cover: The cover photo was taken in August 2015 north of Svalbard in the Arctic. Sailing through sea ice is the now retired Norwegian Polar Institute research vessel Lance. The expedition was part of a 2015 polar bear survey during which polar bear numbers were estimated in the Svalbard et Barents Sea regions. Taken from a helicopter, the photo shows late summer sea ice that is thin, fractured into small floes, and covered with melt ponds. An iceberg is in the foreground. Photo credit: © Nick Cobbing
