Arctic ice falls to record low for winter. The cold top of the Earth has just set a new record for low levels of sea ice in what scientists is just the latest sign of a world overheating. The National Ice and Snow Center in Arctic Colorado this month set a record low for the peak winter sea ice area: 5.57 million square miles 14.42 million square kilometers That's about 35,000 square miles 97,000 kilometers Square - an area roughly the size of Maine - below the 2015 record. Last year it had a tone over 2,015, but almost a tied record. This puts the Arctic in a deep hole, as the spring and summer melt the season begins and more regions will probably be free of ice, director of the Ice Data Center in Colorado, national snow and who released The findings on Wednesday. It is a key part of the Earth's climate system and we are losing it. Record ice thawing comes at the end of a season marked by unusually warm temperatures in the Arctic. During the Christmas week, the North Pole rose to about 50 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than normal, a weather pattern Paul Mayewski, a professor at the University of Maine's Climate Change Institute, who described himself as remarkable.
