Antarctic Sea Ice and Climate Change


The annual expansion and contraction of sea ice in the Antarctic represents one of the biggest natural changes on Earth. At its maximum annual extent in September/October sea ice cover extends about 19 million square kilometres of the ocean around Antarctica – one and half times the size of the continent itself. In the summer sea ice shrinks to around 3 million square kilometres.
