Every season is different from the next, and so is every year. In some years there is very little sea ice, in other years a lot, and these ice movements are closely tied to the number of icebergs you can expect to see along shore in spring.

For this reason, I check the sea ice conditions whenever I get the chance, all you need is a sunny day and a satellite to look down from space:

If you visit NASA’s worldview yourself you can easily click through time, see the satellite views from other years and months, it’s very cool and very informative. Over the coming months I’ll keep a close eye on the sea ice progress, and I’ll share the news here 🙂
