Sea Ice Level Around Antarctic Reaches Record Level

Sea Ice Level Around Antarctic Reaches Record LevelThe sea ice levels around Antarctica have reached a high record in August, according to a recent data published by the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), situated in Boulder, Colorado.

According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center Findings, the area of the sea ice reached 7.2 million square miles, which represented an increase in 4.5% over the average. This was recorded between 1981 and 2010.

NSIDC also claims that the sea ice in the Antarctica is expanding. Inspite of all these findings the scientists argue that these findings do not disprove global warming or mankind's impact on climate change.

The experts believe that the ice pack will expand even in the month of September, despite if the fact that this month is marked as the end of winter in Antarctica. During September 2012, the last record was broken.

The NSIDC report also claimed that the Antarctica sea ice was determined to be 7.53 million square miles by the 14th of September 2014, leaving the previous years record behind, which was 7.51 million square miles.

The scientists have struggled a lot to explain these findings, which result in climate change. But they still suggest that the reason for Global warming has not been fully understood till date.
