This article explores the climate in the Arctic Ocean during the Cenozoic period. It examines extreme climate events and records to analyze changes in the region's climate. It also discusses the development and deployment of new techniques for paleoclimate reconstructions. In addition, the article presents the results of the Arctic Coring Expedition (ACEX) initiated under the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP). The identification of the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) hyperthermal analysis by the ICEX is noted.
