Year: 2005
From collection: Vital Arctic Graphics
Author: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
This oblique view of the Arctic polar ice cap in September shows the significant reduction that has happened over a time period just over 20 years, from 1979 to 2003. Future predicitions shows even more drastic reduction of the ice cap, thus opening new area for natural resources extraction and marine transports.
