Making Arctic Sea Ice Loss Real

Making Arctic Sea Ice Loss Real

Making Arctic Sea Ice Loss Real Posted on 24 December 2011 by Daniel Bailey It is said that a picture can tell a story that a thousand words can't. When it comes to the ongoing demise of Arctic Sea Ice, the ice-loss numbers have gotten quite large. Here's a graphic taken from Dr. Jeff Masters' Wunder Blog , that quite elegantly puts the big numbers into visual context: The extent of Arctic sea ice loss in the summer July - August - September period in 2007 was about 1.4 million square miles (3.6 million square kilometers) greater than in 1980, according to the University of Illinois Cryosphere Today . For comparison, the lost ice coverage (orange colors) was equal to an area about 44% of the size of the contiguous U.S., or 71% of the non-Russian portion of Europe.
