Figure 3: Time series and trends of surface skin temperature and broadband albedo in winter (DJF), spring (MAM), summer (JJA) and Autumn (SON) over the period of 1982 to 2004 for the Arctic region north of 60°N. Numbers in parentheses are the trend slope per year (“S”) with its standard deviation and the F test confidence level (“P”). The first pair of S and P denotes the surface temperature trend (blue) and the second pair is for the surface albedo (red).
