2008 was a year of exceptional seasonal variability in Antarctic sea-ice coverage, characterized by three distinct phases of overall sea-ice extent anomalies: i) well above average (January–April inclusive and December), ii) moderately above average (May–June), and iii) average to slightly below average (July–November), but with substantial regional variability that reflects patterns of atmospheric circulation.
