Abstract

The greater variability of sea ice cover in Antarctica over the year puts tourist vessels at greater risk of getting stuck, experts have warned. The distribution of sea ice varies as the seasons change, extending in winter and retreating in warmer months, but this past winter sea ice in Antarctica reached its lowest extent on record.
