online shoe shop online shoe shop Arctic sea ice hits record low as melt goes on



Scientists at the University of Col online shoe shop orado at Boulder said that data recorded on Sunday broke the 2007 record for the lowest extent of sea ice and that the melt could become even more significant with several weeks of summer left to go.



The National Snow and Ice Data Centre at the university said in a statement that the decline in summer Arctic sea ice is considered a strong signal of longterm climate warming.



The sea ice fell to 4.10 million square kilometres, about 70,000 square kilometres less than the earlier record charted on September 18, 2007, the centre said.



Mark Serreze, director of the centre, said that the record was all the more striking as 2007 had near perfect patterns for melting ice, but that the wea online shoe shop ther this year was unremarkable other than a storm in early August.

The ice is so thin and weak now, it doesnt matter how the winds blow, Prof Serreze said in the statement.



Walt Meier, a scientist at the centre, said that the record was on one level just a number, and occasionally records are going to get set.



But in the context of whats happened in the last severa online shoe shop l years and throughout the satellite record, its an indication that the Arctic sea ice cover is fundamentally changing, he said.



The planet has charted a slew of record temperatures in recent years, with 13 of the warmest years ever taking place in the past decade and a half.



Scientists say climate change is largely caused by human emissions of carbon and other greenhouse gases, which hinder the planets reflection of the suns heat back into space.



The melting of Arctic has helped open up new shipping lanes but is also believed to hold serious consequences for the rest of the planet as the ice serves a vital function in keeping the planet cool. online shoe shop
