CaptureSea ice extent at both poles has been breaking more and more records over recent years, but for radically different reasons. While the Arctic has been steadily losing ice cover, melting as the region rapidly warms, in stark contrast the Antarctic ice cover has remained stable, even growing in some years. Why this is occurring has proven difficult to explain, but now researchers from NASA think they may have cracked it.
