Snow mobile travel over sea ice in Uummannaq, Greenland

Year: 2010 Taken by: Lawrence Hislop
In July 2009, the Arctic sea ice extent for the month of July was the third lowest for that month in the satellite record, after 2007 and 2006. The average rate of melt in July was nearly identical to that of July 2007. A strong high-pressure system, similar to the atmospheric pattern that dominated the summer of 2007, brought warm winds and clear skies to the western Arctic, promoting ice melt.
