This visualization shows the age of the Arctic sea ice between 1984 and 2019. Younger sea ice, or first-year ice, is shown in a dark shade of blue, while ice that is four years old or older is shown as white. A graph displayed in the upper left corner quantifies the area covered in sea ice four or more years old in millions of square kilometers.
