A few years ago, experts announced that the thick, multi-year ice had disappeared from the Arctic
Multiyear Arctic Ocean ice is effectively gone, expert says
David Barber, Canada’s Research Chair in Arctic System Science at the University of Manitoba, said the ice was melting at an extraordinarily fast rate. “We are almost out of multiyear sea ice in the northern hemisphere,” he said in a presentation in Parliament.
The amount of thick multi-year ice in the Arctic has increased by 75% over the last four years, and now covers nearly half of the Arctic basin. Green is three year old ice. Yellow is four year old ice. Red is five year old ice.
This is the big story in the Arctic. Why is NSIDC ignoring their own data in their press releases, and instead opting for BS about “record low maximums?”
