Arctic sea ice reaches lowest maximum extent on record

On February 25, 2015, Arctic sea ice extent appeared to have reached its annual maximum extent, marking the beginning of the sea ice melt season. 

This year’s maximum extent not only occurred early; it is also the lowest in the satellite record. 

Arctic sea ice is reported by the US National Snow and Ice Data Center.
