You can make your own sea-ice animations! Simply select your region (Arctic or Antarctic) and preferred timeframe from the past 20 years. The animation displayed will update automatically. All videos can be played back at various speeds.

You can also download the animations you’ve selected in various resolutions and, with proper citation, use them elsewhere. All animations are based on quality-controlled data.
