Waves rearing as high as the second-floor windows of a building have been detected in the Beaufort Sea for the first time.

Arctic waves are normally kept in check by sea ice, which has traditionally covered large areas of the Arctic Ocean even in the summer. But warmer temperatures as a result of climate change are melting away more and more of that ice.

A wave gauge deployed in the Beaufort Sea in the western Arctic in 2012 has already measured some of the consequences, recording wave heights of almost five metres during a September storm.

Higher waves also means faster ice erosion as well.

This is actually quite fasinating. All these things we didn't know of that would happen because of climate change.

Evidently the holes in Siberia may be due to climate change (permafrost) and they think Canada may also see these pop up (or drop down).
