On Thin Ice: What Is Happening with Arctic Sea Ice

Apr 13, 2021

On This Green Earth, Nell and Chris take a closer look at Arctic Sea Ice.

The Arctic Sea Ice reached its maximum surface area around the middle of March this year.  What was the extent of its coverage, and how much of it has already begun to melt due to the combination of natural and man-made warming?

Walt Meier, senior research scientist at the National Snow and Ice Data Center comes on the show to answer these questions.
