Arctic sea ice is on track to be among smallest winter max on record.
The end-of-summer minimum extent in 2016 tied for the second-smallest on record. In November, the usual seasonal expansion of the ice cover actually reversed course for nearly a week. This retreat shows up in this animation: watch the ice cover between Greenland and Russia. The area fills in with white as ice concentrations approach 100% in mid-November, but then shades of blue return in late November and early December as the growth halts.
Arctic sea ice extent reaches its maximum winter extent in late February or early March. Following a record-low January extent, this year's winter maximum is lining up to be among the smallest on record. The final frame shows how much the sea ice would need to grow in coming weeks to reach normal winter maximum extent.

Arctic sea ice, the vast sheath of frozen seawater floating on the Arctic Ocean and its neighboring seas, has been hit with a double whammy over the past decades: as its extent shrunk, the oldest and thickest ice has either thinned or melted away, leaving the sea ice cap more vulnerable to the warming ocean and atmosphere.

This week we take you to Siberia! Sentinel-2A brings us over the snowy landscape of the #PutoranaPlateau in northern #CentralSiberia. Kind of looks like a tree doesn't it? 🌳🌱 weirdnature perspective
The area pictured actually shows part of the #PutoranskyStateNatureReserve, which is listed as a #UNESCOworldHeritageSite. Situated about 100 km north of the #ArcticCircle , the site serves as a major reindeer migration route – an increasingly Rare natural phenomenon – and is one of the very few centres of plant species richness in the Arctic.
Virtually untouched by human influence, this isolated mountain range includes pristine forests and cold-water lake and river systems. The lakes are characterised by elongated, fjord-like shapes, such as #LakeAyan in the upper-central part of the image.
Another feature of this area are the #FlatToppedMountain , formed by a geological process called ‘plume volcanism’: a large body of magma seeped through Earth’s surface and formed a blanket of basalt kilometres thick. Over time, cracks in the rock filled with water and eroded into the rivers and lakes we see today.

Together they tell the story of the changing face of ice in an era of climate change. Photographed on assignment for @ NatGeo in Alaska’s Wrangell-St. Elias National Park.

On September 10, 2016, Arctic sea ice extent shrank to 4.14 million square kilometers (1.60 million square miles). The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) announced that this summer low was statistically tied with the minimum of 2007 for second-lowest in the satellite record, both behind the 2012 record low.
The map shows Arctic sea ice concentration as measured by satellites on September 10, 2016. Areas with at least 15% ice cover appear in shades of gray-blue to white. Open ocean water (less than 15% ice cover) is navy blue. The yellow line shows the median (middle of the range) sea ice extent for 1981–2010.
For more information, see the NSIDC link below or read the full story at Climate.gov (http://go.usa.gov/xK9CR). #NOAA #NOAASatellites #Seenfromspace #NorthOceanSeria #PolarOceanSeria #ArcticOceanSeria #OceansSeria #icebergsSeria #ClimatologySeria #ArcticaSeria #KuzeyBuzOkyanusuSeria #KuzeyOkyanusuSeria #ArcticicebergsSeria

❄️ Hvorfor er isbjørnen viktig? ❄️ Isbjørnen er på mange måter sjefen i Arktis. Som Arktis’ største rovdyr er isbjørnen på toppen av næringskjeden og kan slik påvirke bestandene av sine byttedyr. Om livet til isbjørnen blir vanskeligere vet vi at svært mange andre arter også vil få det tøft videre. Restene etter isbjørnens jakt gir nemlig mat for en rekke andre arter.
Vi jobber for at isbjørnen – og de andre dyrene i Arktis – skal leve videre.
