Global Sea Ice Reference Page: Arctic and Antarctic current graphs and imagery

(page last updated 6-10-14)

Given the intense interest in Arctic Sea Ice extent this year, I’ve decided to put all the sea ice graphs in one handy place for easy nail biting reference. All images are automatically updated immediately upon update at their source.
