Arctic ice

Measured as summertime sea ice, the Arctic region sees a decline of available ice year on year, now showing even 40% less ice compared to 1970s, since the observations of the ice began.

Greenland is the major land area covered with ice at the north pole. Its ice shield is thinning and melting, releasing more water in the oceans. Recent years demonstrate that the rate of ice thawing has accelerated in this region.
