Arctic sea ice has reached its minimum extent for the year, setting a record for the lowest summer cover since satellite data collection began.

Record minimum for Arctic sea ice

Arctic sea ice reaches record low, Nasa says The Arctic has lost more sea ice this year than at any time since satellite records began in Nasa says. Scientists involved in the calculations say it is part of a fundamental change.

Poles apart: satellites reveal why Antarctic sea ice grows as Arctic melts

Two weeks after a new record was set in the Arctic Ocean for the least amount of sea ice coverage in the satellite record, the ice surrounding Antarctica reached its annual winter maximum—and set a record for a new high. Sea ice extended over 19.44 million square kilometers (7.51 million square miles) in 2012.

See how Arctic sea ice is losing its bulwark against warming summers

A Arctic sea ice shrinks, the oldest and thickest ice has either thinned or melted away, leaving the sea ice cap more vulnerable to the warming ocean and atmosphere.

Arctic Death Spiral Bombshell: CryoSat-2 Confirms Sea Ice Volume Has Collapsed

Scientists predicted a decade ago that Arctic ice loss would shift storm tracks and bring on worse western droughts of the kind we are now seeing. Recent studies find that Arctic sea ice loss may…

Melting Sea Ice Makes Arctic Drilling a Risky Business - Sea ice melting partly because of human-caused climate change could open previously inaccessible Arctic Ocean waters to expanded oil drilling, but the risks of drilling there will be extremely high.
