Antarctic ice extent in June of 2010 were much higher than what had been observed historically from satellites. However, although sea ice seems to be increasing in extent, melting of the ice sheets is continuing at fast rates as is calving of icebergs from the mainland. As of the time of this image, some areas of Antarctica were experiencing high temperature anomalies.
