Arctic Sea Ice Extent: August 6, 2020

August 6, 2020: Over the past week the sea ice has now decreased by a rate of 4.23% from the level on 7/30/2020 of 6.069 M km2 to 5.812 M km2 for this week. At this point, while still in a record low neighborhood, it is now a bit above the extents in 2012 (green line) and 2018 (gold line). For those predicting a record low year for 2020, we still have about a month left in the sea ice loss season.
