The arctic melt this summer is unprecedented. By mid-September, it will be worse even than 2007, which saw the Northwest Passage opened for the first time. On August 27, the US National Snow and Ice Data Center reported that the ice pack was a 4.1 million square kilometers, 70,000 square kilometers lower than 2007. There are still about four weeks to go before the ice pack stabilizes and starts to grow, as the days get shorter and the arctic winter sets in.
