How much sea ice will be left in 2050?
Author: K. Dixon & H. Vahlenkamp, October 1998, December 1999, February 2004; Layout: Petter Sevaldsen (UNEP/GRID-Arendal)
Climate simulations suggest continued rapid loss of Arctic sea-ice. The observations of indigenous peoples also indicate unprecedented change. The loss of the Arctic sea-ice will have vast impacts on climate, livelihoods and biodiversity.
