# STAT 757 — Fall 2020

Time series of the difference in Arctic sea ice extent in March (the month of ice-extent maximum) and September (the month of ice-extent minimum) from the mean values for the time period 1979-2007. Based on a least squares linear regression, the rate of decrease for the March ice extents was 2.8% per decade and and September was 11.3% per decade.
