New observations from ICESAT-2 show remarkable Arctic Sea ice thinning in just three years.

Over the past two decades, the Arctic has lost about one-third of its winter sea ice volume largely due to a decline in sea ice that persists over several years, called multiyear ice, according to a new study.

The study also found sea ice is likely thinner than previous estimates.
