Arctic sea ice melting, Lancaster Sound, Nunavut, Canada. During spring the sea ice that has formed over winter begins to melt and form cracks. The midnight sun is visible at centre top. In recent years, the effects of global warming have caused sea ice to melt earlier in the season and glaciers to recede.
