Arctic Ice Level May Never Rise

A new report claims that due to increases in global temperatures, Arctic ice levels may never return to normal.

The annual report published by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) states that we are unlikely to ever see high ice coverage again in the area.

This is due to prolonged falls in ice thickness and extent of sea ice due to warmer sea temperatures.

The first half of 2017 saw cooler temperatures which brought higher snow cover, however thicker ice cover has fallen from 45% in 1985 to 21% in this year.

The NOAA claim that the Arctic tundra areas are becoming ever greener and are losing more and more of their ice and snow coverage.

It is believed that the Barents and Chukchi seas were around 4c warmer than average temperatures, this is being blamed for later freeze-up times giving the area less time for ice to build up.

Jeremy Mathis, director of the Arctic programme at NOAA, stated: “This year’s observations confirm that the Arctic shows no signs of returning to the reliably frozen state that it was in just a decade ago.”

“These changes will impact all of our lives.”

“They will mean living with more extreme weather events, paying higher food prices and dealing with the impacts of climate refugees.”
