Study predicts ice-free summers in the Arctic by the mid-century

Study predicts ice-free summers in the Arctic by the mid-century

Seasonal sea ice, which melts completely each summer rather than accumulating over years, is replacing thicker, multiyear ice and driving sea ice thinning trends, according to new research.
Over the past two decades, the Arctic has lost about one third of its winter sea ice volume, largely due to a decline in sea ice that persists over several years, called multiyear ice. The study also found sea ice is likely thinner than previous estimates.
According to the researchers, this was the first time…
