Arctic Sea Ice: The New Normal

Arctic Sea Ice: The New Normal

A Google Hangout to launch a new AMNH/NOAA Data Visualization

Tuesday, April 9 @ 4–5PM EDT

Last September, sea ice in the Arctic Ocean shrank to its smallest extent on record. This frozen cover is also dramatically younger and thinner than it used to be. How does the satellite record reveal these changes? And what are the effects of sea ice loss both near and far?

Explore these issues and questions with experts on sea ice monitoring, polar science, and data visualization at a live Google Hangout on Air on Tuesday, April 9 from 4–5 PM EDT, hosted by the American Museum of Natural History’s Science Bulletins program and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
