Arctic sea ice reaches lowest extent on record while Antarctic ice grows

Thursday, September 20th, 2012 10:23am MST

Scientists announced yesterday that Arctic sea ice had completed its summer melt and in the end reached the lowest extent since satellite measurements began. At the other end of the globe Antarctica was seeing the exact opposite as the ice at the South Pole grows to record levels. Read the rest of this story on Examiner.com.  Be sure to check out the video of the early August storm that tore the Arctic ice to shreds.

Satellite data reveal how the new record low Arctic sea ice extent, from Sept. 16, 2012, compares to the average minimum extent over the past 30 years (in yellow). (NASA)
