Bering Sea ice is “at record low levels for this time of year”


Arctic sea ice is low, with Bering Sea’s sea ice extent “is the lowest recorded since at least 1979,” according to the National Snow & Ice Data Center (NSIDC). In April, Arctic sea ice extent was 378,400 square miles under the 1981 to 2010 average. And according to Earther, the Bering Sea has been something of a ground zero this winter, with sea ice disappearing when it was supposed to be growing in February, rebounding slightly in March, and then plummeting in April.
