NASA shares time-lapse video of melting, shrinking Arctic sea ice over past three decades! - Watch

One of the reasons is that the multiyear ice used to be a pretty consolidated ice pack and now we're seeing relatively smaller chunks of old ice interspersed with younger ice.

Warming atmosphere reason behind Arctic sea ice vanishing parapet

Warming atmosphere reason behind Arctic sea ice vanishing parapet

A recent study conducted by NASA claims that arctic sea ice is swiftly losing its fortification due to warming atmosphere.

Arctic sea ice melt in September 2016 hits second lowest level on record!

Arctic sea ice melt in September 2016 hits second lowest level on record!

The scientists felt it was unlikely that this year's summertime sea ice minimum extent will set a new record, but, it seems that they've been proven wrong.

Here's why NASA calls low level of Arctic sea ice the 'new normal' – Watch!

Here's why NASA calls low level of Arctic sea ice the 'new normal' – Watch!

The melt slowed down in June, but scientists say the rate of ice loss picked up again during the first two weeks of August, and is now greater than average for this time of the year.  

Melting of Arctic sea ice strikes record high in June

Melting of Arctic sea ice strikes record high in June

Scientists warned that due to persistent warming this coming September, Arctic sea ice would set another record in melting of polar ice.

Greenland melting linked to shrinking Arctic sea ice

Greenland melting linked to shrinking Arctic sea ice

Both transport a lot of heat, moisture and clouds over the Greenland ice sheet, leading to more melting, the researchers pointed out.

Himalayan glaciers to ice in Antarctica!

Himalayan glaciers to ice in Antarctica!

The NASA study challenges the oft-repeated findings of the United Nation's panel on climate change, the Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that forecast a grim future for the melting ice sheets of the Antarctic.

Losing grip much? Arctic sea just hit 4th lowest level on record

Losing grip much? Arctic sea just hit 4th lowest level on record

Reaching its likely minimum extent for 2015, Arctic sea`s minimum ice extent was the fourth lowest in the satellite record since observations from space began.

Dutch polar explorers likely drowned: Canada police

Two Dutch explorers studying melting Arctic sea ice have apparently drowned after falling through thin ice, police said Monday.

Arctic sea ice hits record low: US officials

Arctic sea ice hits record low: US officials

Arctic sea ice has reached its lowest winter point since satellite observations began in the late 1970s, raising concerns about faster ice melt and rising seas due to global warming, US officials said Thursday.

Arctic sea ice hits record low: US monitor

Arctic sea ice has reached its lowest winter point since satellite observations began in the late 1970s, raising concerns about faster ice melt and rising seas due to global warming, US officials said Thursday.

Global sea ice diminishing: NASA

Global sea ice diminishing: NASA

The gains from sea ice increase in Antarctica do not cancel out the loss from the accelerated decrease in Arctic sea ice of the last decades, a study by NASA has found.

Loss of sea ice to impact polar bear populations by 2100

Loss of sea ice to impact polar bear populations by 2100

Polar bears may face starvation and reproductive failure by the year 2100 due to heavy loss of Arctic sea ice, a new study has warned.

Arctic Sea Ice melts to sixth lowest level ever on record

Arctic Sea Ice melts to sixth lowest level ever on record

A new study has revealed that Arctic sea ice had hit its annual minimum on record on Sept. 17.

Arctic sea ice depletion to result in rise of CO2 in atmosphere

Arctic sea ice depletion to result in rise of CO2 in atmosphere

A new study has revealed that Arctic Sea ice helps remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and its depletion would result in an increase of atmospheric concentration of the gas.

NASA to map Greenland ice sheet summer melt

For the first time, the Laser Vegetation Imaging Sensor, or LVIS, is set to fly aboard NASA`s new C-130 aircraft to map Greenland`s ice sheet and surrounding Arctic sea ice following a summer`s melt.

Freak cyclone delinked from record low for Arctic sea ice

A new study has delinked an unusually large summer cyclone originating in Siberia from last year`s record low for Arctic sea ice.

Ocean currents play key role in predicting extent of Arctic sea ice

Researchers at MIT have developed a new method for optimally combining models and observations to accurately simulate the seasonal extent of Arctic sea ice and the ocean circulation beneath.

Arctic sea ice shrinks while Antarctic grows

Last month the world witnessed two opposite records concerning sea ice.

Sea level rise `may pose imminent threat to island nations`

Low-lying island nations that are threatened by the rising sea levels this century could see the disastrous consequences of climate change far sooner than expected, researchers say.
