11 Feb 2021 – Antarctic sea ice extent

Originally tweeted by NOAA (@NOAA) on 12 February 2021.

The NSIDC tweeted today that the Antarctic sea ice extent in January 2020 had tied with January 2007 as the 13th smallest on record. It’s obviously taken a bit of a nose dive since the end of January because I now make it the eight lowest in the satellite series that began in 1978 as of the 11th of February, but still well up on 2017 and 2018.
