    More than that, those persistent warmer-than-average years only began around 2012 as the result of sustained winds blowing large amounts of thick, old ice through the Fram Strait. Given the opposite has happened this year—persistent strong southerly winds in large storms—have pushed the sea ice bordering northern Greenland into a centrally located, thick ice mass around the north pole with the same volume as in 2008, will we see an expansion next winter if the thick ice holds? Only time will tell.
