Sea Ice Extent (Global Antarctic and Arctic) – Day 150 – 2017

Day 150 2017. Global Sea now 2nd lowest.

Antarctic now 3rd lowest. 1986 and 1980 were lower.

Arctic 6th lowest – but 800,000 km2 above 2016.

South / North



  1. Given the below normal SST’s across most of the NH right now, Arctic sea ice decline is likely to be muted, as is Antarctic sea ice expansion. This follows the opposite-but-in-tandem growth/decline at either pole.
