The global trend for rising temperatures ...

The global trend for rising temperatures is 0.17 degree Celsius per decade, but in the Arctic it's more than 0.6 degrees Celsius per decade, more than three times the global trend, said Josefino C. Comiso, a senior research scientist at the Cryospheric Sciences Laboratory at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.

Getting accurate temperature measurements of the Arctic from satellites is a challenge, in part because the signature of snow is very similar to that of clouds, Comiso said. The result is that it's difficult to compare satellite measurements with "in situ" measurements made with weather stations on the ground - which face their own set of problems in harsh conditions.
"You get a big scatter, because some data points aren't really dependable," Comiso said.
In the end, temperature data from ground instruments is limited because sampling in the Arctic is limited. Meanwhile, temperature trends are not uniform across the Arctic, and increases in surface melt could cause instabilities in the Greenland ice sheet, Comiso said.
Still, long term "in situ" data (on the ground) indicates an acceleration of warming during the last century by more than three times, Comiso said.
