A Selective History of Arctic Sea Ice Observations

Arctic sea ice has been been the last frontier of the North for thousands of years, turning back seafarers, testing the mettle of explorers, and providing a way of life for people circling the top of the world. This animated timeline provides a quick (and highly selective) ride from the days of early Greek exploration to the dawn of the Space Age to the advanced capabilities we have today.
