Thickness and area of Arctic sea ice

"LARGELY UNNOTICED, a silent drama has been unfolding over the past weeks in the Arctic. The long-term consequences will far outstrip those of the international debt crisis or the demise of the Libyan dictatorship, the news stories now commanding media attention. The drama - more accurately, a tragedy - playing out in the North is the rapid disappearance of the polar ice cap, the Arctic Ocean's defining feature."
