Sea ice extent reached a record monthly low in both the Arctic and Antarctic regions.
Latest global forecast model reanalyses and monthly climatological data suggest that the so-called global warming "hiatus" between 1998-2012 was overrated.
New research brings more insight to the recent slow-down in global surface warming from 1998-2013.
Sea ice extent in the Arctic is running well below normal so far this fall.
