Arctic Sea Ice Volume is 50 Percent Higher than Last Year

The Arctic sea ice volume has risen and is 50 percent higher than what it was last year according to the European Science Agency.

The ESA has reported that the Arctic sea ice volume is on the rise and is 50 percent more than what it was just one year ago despite the global warming concerns. While the rise comes as a surprise, the ESA also stated that it does not reverse the trend of the Arctic’s decline.

Just a few months ago, it was reported that the ice in the Arctic region grew by 29 percent. The rise has now reached to a 50 percent increase and is good news for the area.

According to Britain’s Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling, Rachel Tilling:

“We didn’t expect the greater ice extent left at the end of this summer’s melt to be reflected in the volume. But it has been, and the reason is related to the amount of multi-year ice in the Arctic.”

The data comes from the ESA’s high tech ice-monitoring satellite CryoSat. Over the past three years, CyroSat has measured that the ice is 20 percent thicker. The ESA states that this recent data should not deter those who are skeptical of global warming as they say it can take decades in order to show a trend.

Professor at University College London and co-author of the study Andrew Shepherd told reporters,

“It’s estimated that there was around 20,000 cubic kilometres (4,800 cu. miles) of Arctic sea ice each October in the early 1980s, and so today’s minimum still ranks among the lowest of the past 30 years.”
