Event description
First manmade ice free Arctic summer

About this event

Each year, Arctic sea ice expands as the sea surface freezes during the long, dark winter. At its maximum in March, the ice covers nearly the entire Arctic Ocean, almost 6 million square miles. It melts back during summer, reaching its lowest point in September. In July during the 1980s, the ice covered an average of about 3.8 million square miles, roughly the area of the U.S. or Canada. Last July, sea ice covered only about 2.8 million square miles.

Even with aggressive action, it’s between unlikely and impossible that this trend can be turned around before the region hits the point where summer ice is gone and doesn’t come back.
