A video showing the shrinking artic ice cap from 1984 to 2018.

NASA’s timelapse comparison of the older sea ice in the Artic in September 1984 and September 2016. In September 1984, there were 1.86 million square kilometers of old ice (4 years or older) left throughout the Arctic sea ice cap during its yearly minimum extent; in September 2016, there were only 110,000 square kilometers of older sea ice left. Credit: NASA’s Scientific Visualization Studio. That is less than 10 percent of what it was in 1984.
