Jan Lieser, a sea ice scientist at the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre in Tasmania, said that the sea ice extent around the continent had shrunk to 2.1091 million square kilometers. The area covered by ice has been threatening to drop below the previous minimum, 2.32 million square kilometers recorded in February 2011, for much of the southern summer and is now 10 percent lower.
