Short summary
This study has investigated the effect of retreating sea ice on Arctic cloud cover in historical simulations by the coupled atmosphere–ocean general circulation model, MIROC5. This study show that MIROC5 simulates retreating Arctic sea ice in September during the late 20th Century, which causes an increase in Arctic cloud cover in October. Sensitivity experiments using the atmospheric component of MIROC5 also proved that the increase in Arctic cloud cover is due to the retreating sea ice.
