Aldri observert mindre sjøis i Arktis i begynnelsen av august

Siden midten av juli i år har det aldri tidligere vært observert mindre total utbredelse av sjøis i Arktis. Fortsatt er det cirka en og en halv måned igjen av smeltesesongen og årets absolutte minimum utbredelse av sjøis i Arktis som inntreffer i midten av september. Den tidligere årsminimumsrekorden inntraff i september i 2012 med en sjøisutbredelse på ca. 4,49 millioner kvadratkilometer.

ARCONOR: Arctic cooperation between Norway, Russia, India, China and US in satellite Earth observation and Education

Research and higher education related to sea ice, environment, climate change, and operational conditions in the Arctic Ocean focusing on the Northern Sea Route.

The Arctic Ocean has obtained increased international attention due to changing sea ice conditions facilitating the accessibility, as well as the exploitation of its natural resources (minerals, fisheries), energy (oil, gas), and new sailing routes that are creating new challenges and opportunities. Although transportation into, within and/or through the Arctic waters has been on the agenda for several decades, the Arctic is not yet an arena for large-scale international marine transportation.
