Arctic Sea Ice Is the Thinnest and Youngest It’s Been in 60 Years

seaicemin_2016_withaveext-1360

Working from a combination of satellite records and declassified submarine sonar data, NASA scientists have constructed a 60-year record of Arctic sea ice thickness.

Right now, Arctic sea ice is the youngest and thinnest its been since we started keeping records. More than 70 percent of… Continue reading “Arctic Sea Ice Is the Thinnest and Youngest It’s Been in 60 Years”
