Changes in the sea-ice cover over time can best be displayed in animated graphics. Here you’ll find a selection of animations that you can use to see how e.g. the minimum summer sea-ice cover in the Arctic or Antarctic has changed over the years. The animations are based on data and figures that you can view and download from the data portal section of the SEA ICE PORTAL.
