New paper finds Ross Sea ice in Antarctica has increased 5% since 1993 – Published in Geophysical Research Letters


A new paper published in Geophysical Research Letters reconstructs sea-ice area in the Ross Sea, Antarctica from a 130 year coastal ice-core record. The authors find the “data show prevailing stable SIA from the 1880s until the 1950s, a 2–5% reduction from the mid-1950s to the early-1990s, and a 5% increase after 1993.”

Thus, the overall trend in the Ross Sea, Antarctica over the past 130 years would be stable to increasing.
