ABSTRACT
The article reports that measurements of ice cover in the Arctic Ocean for 2007 have reached an all time low since data has been tabulated in 1979. In September, just 4.28 million square kilometres of ice covered the Arctic ocean, 23 per cent less than the previous record low, set in 2005, and 39 per cent less than the average annual minimum between 1979 and 2000.
