Arctic Sea Ice Minimum Volumes 1979-2018

“The rate of ice loss in the Arctic is staggering. Since 1979, the volume of Summer Arctic sea ice has declined by more than 80% and accelerating faster than scientists believed it would, or even could melt.

Watch the latest visualization of the startling decline of Arctic Sea Ice up to 2018, showing the minimum volume reached every September since 1979, set on a map of New York with a 10km grid to give an idea of scale. It is clear that the trend of Arctic sea ice decline indicates that it’ll soon be ice-free for an increasingly large part of the year, with consequences for the climate.
