European report says sea ice continues to recede

European researchers have reported that satellite observations of arctic sea ice show sea ice decline of 19% compared to the past 5 winters. Dr. Katherine Giles with the Center for Polar Observations and Modelling at University College in London says their research looks at the past 6 winters data from a single satellite. Giles says thinner sea ice last winter verified extreme thawing during the previous summer.
