The Arctic is a highly sensitive region that is being profoundly affected by the changing climate. Temperatures in this region are rising twice as fast at they are anywhere else in the world. Sea ice covers parts of the Uummannaq Fjord for many months of the year. For the Arctic, the area covered by sea ice in September is declining by 11.5% per decade. Not only is the surface area of ice receding, but there is a vertical thinning occurring. The ice sheet is getting less thick.
