      The material has been digitised and organised geo-spatially, with trails mapped out over satellite imagery using global positioning systems. But when sea ice melts, it exposes the dark ocean surface, which reflects less light and causes Arctic temperatures to rise further. This year looks unlikely to set a record for melting, with more than four million square kilometres of ice remaining, less than the average in the s and s, but more than in the record low years of and Ice thickness measurements and their implications with respect to past and present ice volumes in the Canadian High Arctic ice caps. Arctic sea ice helps to keep the polar regions cool and helps moderate the global climate. You will not receive a reply.

This year looks unlikely to set a record for melting, with more than four million square kilometres of ice remaining, less than the average in the s and s, but more than in the record low years of and However, this is an assumption that we can now say is not supported by scientific evidence see summary of that evidence here.

      The amount of sea ice around Antarctica has been increasing in recent years, contrary to predictions.
