In one account from the book, Kugluktuk's Roy Inuktalik shares his observations on the changes to sea ice thickness. "The ocean here, even the lakes, when they freeze up the ice is not as thick.

It was approached by the author from the standpoint of astronomy and a desire to understand the variations of the sun.

It was hoped that these variations could be more accurately studied by correlation with climatic phenomena. But the science of meteorology is still comparatively new and supplies us only. Jun 15,  · Covering more than seven percent of the earth’s surface, sea ice is crucial to the functioning of the biosphere—and is a key component in our attempts to understand and combat climate change.
