Collapse of North Pole ice cap


ARCTIC SEA ICE BREAKS A NEW RECORD LOW ONCE AGAIN



North Pole's ice cap collapsed on 9th March 2014 to a new all-time record low for this time of season with only 12,957,000 km2 sea ice remaining. 


At present the sea ice is 1,156,000 km2 smaller what one would normally expect for this time of year. (The normal sea ice cover at this time of year should be over 14 million square kilometres.) 


The yellow line is sea ice area in 2014 (the dark red line is the last year's sea ice area)
