Arctic ice shrinks to all-time low; half 1980 size
WASHINGTON (AP) — Scientists say the amount of ice in the Arctic Ocean shrank to an all-time low this year, smashing old records for the critical climate indicator.
The ice cap at the North Pole measured 1.32 million square miles (3.42 million sq. kilometers) on Sunday. The previous low was 1.61 million square miles (4.17 million sq. kilometers) in 2007. Records go back to 1979 based on satellite tracking.
