Even in the middle of summer, arctic water is cold. Packed sea ice floats as far as the eye can see as evidence of the seawater’s temperature, which is near zero degrees Celsius. The air, however, can be downright balmy. Overhead, a sun that never sets and warm air flowing in from the south means that summer months in the Arctic are surprisingly warm. The atmosphere heats up enough to unlock multiyear pack ice which then flows out of the passage and into the ocean before the long winter sets it in stone once again.
