Arctic sea ice reached its annual maximum with 14.48 million square kilometers on March 17 the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) reports. This represents the second-lowest extent since satellite observations began in 1979, just slightly behind last year’s record-low of 14.42 million square kilometers. It also caps a winter season marked by dramatic weather shifts and prolonged periods of unusually warm temperatures across the region.
