Arctic report card: update for 2017

NOAA’s Arctic program released Arctic Report Card Update for 2017. The report finds “Arctic shows no sign of returning to reliably frozen region of recent past decades”, “The sea ice cover continues to be relatively young and thin with older, thicker ice comprising only 21% of the ice cover in 2017 compared to 45% in 1985.”, and “Pronounced increases in ocean primary productivity, at the base of the marine food web, were observed in the Barents and Eurasian Arctic seas from 2003 to 2017.”.
