The Greely Arctic Expedition at its farthest point North, 18
Engraving showing members of the American Meteorological Expedition of 1881-4 taking their position, with a sextant, at the farthest point North they reached. Led by Lt. Greely, the American Meteorological Expedition of 1881-4 explored the Arctic around Greenland, set a new furthest North record and attempted to establish a meteorological station. Two relief ships failed to reach Greely and by the time the third arrived, all but six of the expedition had starved to death.

Arctic sea ice, 1979
Arctic sea ice, 1979. Satellite image of the minimum extent of sea ice around the North Pole in 1979. The ice covers much of the eastern coast of Greenland (centre right) and touches the northern coast of eastern Russia (centre left). Global warming since 1979 has greatly reduced the extent of sea ice in the Arctic. See image E205/091 for the situation in 2003. Image E205/128 shows the minimum extent in 2005. Data collected by the Special Sensor Microwave Imager (SSMI) on a Defense Meterological Support Program (DMPS) satellite.
