Gelo nos mares da Antártida em mínimos do registo

By Phil Bainbridge

August 10, 2022 - O gelo nos mares da Antártida atingiu em julho os níveis mais baixos desde que os registos começaram há 44 anos, 7% menos que a média de 1991-2020.

The European Copernicus Climate Change Service found that Antarctic sea ice extent reached 15.3 million sq km, down from the July average of 16.5 million sq km. Meanwhile, Arctic sea ice was 4% lower than the average.

While climate change makes extreme heat and drought more likely, the 2021 July figure was above average, underscoring the great annual variability in Antarctic sea ice.
