NSIDC: Arctic and Antarctic Sea Ice Standardized Anomalies and Trends Jan 1979 - Dec 2007Entry ID: NSIDC_ArcticAntarcticSeaIceExtent1979-2007
Abstract: Arctic and Antarctic Sea Ice Extent, 1979-2007: Although Arctic sea ice extent underwent a strong decline from 1979 to 2007, Antarctic sea ice underwent a slight increase. The Antarctic ice extent increases were smaller in magnitude than the Arctic increases, and some regions of the Antarctic experienced strong declining trends in sea ice extent. See the Arctic Sea Ice FAQ for more information. Image provided by National Snow and Ice Data Center, University of Colorado, Boulder.
