Arc­tic Oce­an pos­si­b­ly sea­so­nal­ly ice-free as ear­ly as 2030

The­re has been a year-round ice-cover on the Arc­tic Oce­an sin­ce appro­xi­mate­ly 15 mil­li­on years. New rese­arch results indi­ca­te that this rela­tively young, but for the Arc­tic extre­me­ly important eco­sys­tem might get lost again as soon as around 2030. It has to be expec­ted that the Arc­tic Oce­an will be com­ple­te­ly ice-free during the sum­mer and that sea ice is redu­ced to a sea­so­nal cover during the win­ter and spring.

The tooth of cli­ma­te chan­ge is nag­ging on arc­tic sea ice.
