Antarctic Sea Ice and Climate Change

img-aa-in-sea-ice

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.
