Arctic Sea Ice Sets New Record Low For July:

Arctic Sea Ice Sets New Record Low For July:

NSIDC on the conditions through July: Sea ice declined at an average pace of 90,200 square kilometers (34,800 square miles) per day, which is slightly faster than the average for 1979 to 2000 of 84,400 square kilometers (32,600 square miles) per day. Ice loss slowed towards the end of July as a high-pressure cell centered over the northern Beaufort Sea broke down and a series of low-pressure systems moved over the central Arctic Ocean. This change brought cooler conditions and likely pushed the ice apart into a thinner but more extensive ice cover. Continuing a trend as least as important as the diminishing extent of sea ice, NSIDC reports that the oldest and thickest sea ice continues to decline : Until recently, the central Arctic Ocean and Canadian Archipelago served as refuges for some of the oldest, thickest ice. However, the new data show that ice age is now declinin...
