Mar 23, 2018 · Sea ice in the Arctic grew to its annual maximum extent last week, and joined 2015, 2016 and 2017 as the four lowest maximum extents on record, according to scientists. On March 17, the Arctic sea ...
Jul 16, 2017 · By Paul Homewood Quick Arctic update. DMI have now issued the June sea ice data, which shows a steady recovery in extent since the low in 2010. Significantly, this year’s extent of 11.52 million sq km is greater than in 2006, which was 11.50. Sep 15, 2018 · I have been for 3 years tracking and reporting on the plateau in Arctic ice extent since 2007. I have also been attacked for not analyzing the decline in ice prior to 2007, though that pattern is obvious to everyone. The lack of ice decline since 2007 is inconvenient and they prefer it hidden, especially as the Paris Accord goes into crunch time.
Sep 12, 2007 · Regardless of what “most climate scientists expect” with regard to ice at the poles, the measurements are showing 57 cubic miles of ice loss per year in Greenland and another 36 cubic miles of ice loss per year from the Antarctic ice sheet. Sea ice extent isn’t nearly as important a measure of climate change at the poles as is net ice loss. More Record Gains for Greenland’s Ice Sheet November 15, 2019 November 15, 2019 Cap Allon On the back of substantial surface mass balance (SMB) gains over the past few years, the Greenland ice sheet looks set to continue that trend in 2019-20. Dec 10, 2019 · Temperatures in the Arctic region remained near record highs this year, according to a report issued on Tuesday, leading to low summer sea ice, cascading impacts on the regional food web and growing concerns over sea level rise.
large areas of Greenland’s ice sheet have experienced increased surface melting during summer, adding several hundred billion tons of meltwater to the ocean. 1 When land ice melts, it contributes directly to sea-level rise, a growing threat for coastal cities and communities world-wide. Jul 16, 2015 · Closer to the coast, darker and sometimes ice-filled water from the Arctic Ocean heads south. According to observations from satellites, 2015 is on track to be another low year for arctic summer sea ice cover. The past ten years have included nine of the lowest ice extents on record.
