[1] The extent of perennial sea ice in the East Arctic Ocean (0–180°E) decreased by nearly one half with an abrupt reduction of 0.95 × 106 km2, while the West Arctic Ocean (0–180°W) had a slight gain of 0.23 × 106 km2 between 2004 and 2005, as observed by satellite scatterometer data during November–December. The net decrease in the total perennial ice extent is 0.72 × 106 km2, about the size of Texas. Perennial ice in the East Arctic Ocean continued to be depleted with an areal reduction of 70… CONTINUE READING
