Half a degree could result in ice-free Arctic

A range of less than one degree Fahrenheit, or half a degree Celsius, of climate warming over the next century, could be proven crucial for Arctic as it increases the probability of future ice-free summers in the Arctic, a research by the University of Colorado shows. The research also noted that if warming stays at 1.5 degrees Celsius, the possibility of ice-free summers would drop by 70%.

Research finds Antarctic sea ice smaller than 100 years before

Heroes of Antarctic exploration have played a crucial role in research that suggests the area of sea ice around the Antarctic has barely changed in size. Ice observations recorded in the ships' logbooks of explorers such as Captain Robert Scott and Sir Ernest Shackleton have been used to compare where the Antarctic ice edge was during the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration (1897-1917) and where satellites show it is today.
