Caption: Fall and Winter Arctic Sea Ice Thickness Declining Rapidly. Arctic sea ice thickness derived from winter and fall campaigns from the ICESat satellite. The sea ice extent grows in the summer and shrinks in the winter. While the sea ice extent might look similar from year to year this thickness data shows dramatic thinning especially near the North Pole (shown in dark blue). This image was generated with data acquired between Feb 17 - Mar 21, 2008.
